It reminds the viewer that their anxieties are their neighbour's anxieties. The exhibition is to be described as strangely familiar, consolingly jarring, intuitive and pyschedelic.

"WORK / PLAY" considers how artists play with ideas, materials, space, and tone in their work. How do mistakes, chance, experimentation and impulse influence the creative process? In what ways is play a creative force and aesthetic framework? Each of the artists on this exhibition engage with these questions in different ways through their work. "WORK / PLAY" reimagines the gallery space as a kind of playground, inviting interplay between artworks, audience and the space. Duration: 7 – 13 June 2017 at the Candice Berman Galleryabc
