An exhibition of new work by Anna Clawson & Nicole Ward, featuring a bins worth of misspelt-misprints, lethargic possession, boiled sausages & a group of model train enthusiasts.

With commissioned text by the wonderfully wondrous Belladonna Paloma, who will also be performing on the 13 June for Backyard BBQ.

Nicole Ward

"I am attracted to the immediacy of working with analogue materials & tangible processes. Whether film or sculpture, my work is shaped by repetition. I work intuitively, gathering textures, sounds, & gestures found in my immediate environment."
