Matt Henry: Flatline

Matt Henry's Flatline exhibition runs in our Project Space to 3 October 09. The title Flatline has a slightly ambiguous ring to it that could reference 'death' (as envisaged in Rodchenko monochromes, Malevich's 'zero of form' or void), or conversely a range of slim-line designer appliances/flat screen televisions. Henry sees the function of these particular works in the exhibition as a conduit, creating a kind of juncture between the end games (or openings) of early 20th century art/painting, and an opening out of paintings function in the world. You can read the full exhibition release here.
