Tea Hive


From: Thursday 19 May, 2016  To: Sunday 29 May, 2016


PREVIEW: Thursday 19 May, 18.00 – 20.00

Ever since being a pre-teen water slide enthusiast, Matt has been exploring his fascination with all things tubular. He is interested in the way tubes carry very nearly anything almost everywhere. Wires, pipes, road tunnels, and water slides all transfer matter from A to B.

In this collection of small-scale map-like drawings which feature one long thin tube that snakes through fragmented imagined landscapes, the artist has removed the A and B. The collection is devised to be viewed in any order, to create a journey with no beginning to end. The removal of any apparent purpose, creates a modular narrative.
