Tim Lewis "Machine"


poster for Tim Lewis "Machine"

This event has ended.

In Machine, Tim Lewis’ cast of assisted ready-mades and creature-like constructions explore the boundary between nature and fabrication, mixing intricate mechanics with a dextrous appreciation of both art and artifice. Through a combination of media he creates objects that react to the people and environment around them, taking on properties that they would not naturally possess.

Standing among the works in this exhibition, neither Lewis, nor his viewer, can anticipate quite what will happen next. It is in these moments of unpredictability that Lewis’ work shifts, develops and evolves into new formations. One will witness a mechanical arm repetitively asserting its existence through the etch of an exacting signature and ‘stroboscopic’ artworks that spin and explode with movement capturing motion in its organic form.
