Nicola Ellis: Transfuse
Transfuse: Three weeks of sculpture at The Great Medical Disaster
Paul Bramley / Nicola Ellis / Alyson Olson / Polly Tomlinson
20/09/17 – 11/10/17
Four artists will take up residence at The Great Medical Disaster to make sculpture in response to the internal architecture of the space.
Developing a dialogue between each practice, they will discuss mutual motivations of process, materiality, Arte Povera and the Baroque.
You are welcome to view and discuss the works at the open event on 05/10/17 18.30 – 21.30.
