Olly Read: Serene and Menacing

Poetic tensions inherent in the conscious experience of physical bodies


30 November 2019 – 5 January 2020

Olly Read


Serene and Menacing consists of material driven multimedia sculptural and video works exploring the metamorphic nature of flesh as being continually simultaneously formed, unformed, and deformed. Looking to tensions as reflecting the inherent poetic experience we have of our own bodies.
