Matthew Gallery, Upper Level

An Itch, and other Vital Exertions is an exhibition of work by DJCAD students; Ross Dickinson, Cassia Dodman, Duncan Herd, Murray Renton and Jonny Walker.

Energies, of all kinds, manifest in sculptural installations that reveal the diversity and various necessities of energy expenditure. Surreal alterations, erratic motions, and artificial aromas subvert the comfort of the everyday; scratching at the skin of mundanity. Works embrace the materiality of contemporary life – reflecting on objects, products, manufactured mechanisms, natural rhythms, whilst touching on somatic operations, such as An Itch, and other Vital Exertions.
