27 March – 13 April / Free
This exhibition extends Holland’s exploration of the distortion with light; she often uses silhouettes, distorted shadow and scale, and projection to create her work. These new works are made from catoptric images; the true image is only created and made readable by looking at a mirrored ball at the base of the cylinder. This seemingly magical distorting technique distances the artwork from traditional modes of display, the small sculptural works performing strangely altered states through the complex physics of reflection and refraction, a meeting of the science of anamorphic distortion and the metamorphosis of shape and form.
This event forms part of Making Ways, a programme supported by Sheffield Culture Consortium through Arts Council England to showcase, celebrate and develop the exceptional contemporary visual art produced in the city.Making Ways, News
