Test Space

Preview: Thursday 19 January, 6–9pm

Inspired by alchemy and the esoteric, Robert Foster brings new sculptural and photographic works to Test Space. Developed whilst on residency at Gamli Skóli, Hrísey, Iceland (September 2016), these works act as fragments or clues, ruminating on how abstract knowledge is collected, ordered and decoded.

On the opening night, he presents Truth Immaterial, a new performance lecture offering further insight into the objects and materials presented here.

Test Space is programmed by studio holders based at Spike Island and offers artists a chance to exhibit new works and test ideas. Artists from within the Spike Island community and beyond are included.

Please ask at reception for access.
