CUT WITH A KITCHEN KNIFE

Cut with a kitchen knife is a survey of the current manifestations of collage in contemporary art and more than a nod to the absurdist collages that arose from the brief and highly influential Dadaist movement of the early 20th Century. Less concerned with addressing the problems of the picture plane and more those of an existential nature, works on paper have been selected from nine contemporary artists who traverse the surface, relay absurdisms and reorganise obsessive collections - Christian Capurro, Simon Evans, Elizabeth Gower, Nathan Gray, Mandy Gunn, Deborah Kelly, Nick Mangan and Stuart Ringholt.
