Showing work by Sarah Van Sloten  until the 26th September. Sarah’s work is a delightfully irreverent and whimsical combination of painting, sculpture and installation work combining ‘everyday’ objects such as pieces of pasta, pipe cleaners plasticine and more traditional forms of painting, collage and illustration.

The work evokes a nostalgia with an ironic twist, her use of materials is clever; plasticine balls with smily faces haloed by pipe cleaners display a knowing whit rather than a childishness. Her work speaks of social context, spaces of communiqué slipping between the domestic and the ‘professional’  – the work exists somewhere on the edge of Bourriaud’s conception of Relational aesthetics but says more of social situations and frenzied activity now past, re-configured as carefully controlled installations – testaments to other moments, contexts and gestures.
