‘Waste, Want and Overabundance’
25th May – 11th June 2019
In partnership with the Salisbury International Arts Festival, an exhibition by artist Alison Harper. Alison is based in Bath. Her recent PHD with Practice explored the issues of reparation around our relationship with the material world.
In diminishing the imagined boundaries and barriers, and suggesting a form of deep materialism, Alison’s work reassesses and readjusts our relationship with matter, leading to a more caring and less harmful way to be in the world.
