Project Space: Metamorphoses



The upcoming exhibition “Metamorphoses” at Phoenix Art Space brings together three Brighton-based artists working at the intersection of sustainability, abstraction, technology and nature. The exhibition is a fresh and investigative inquiry into sustainable art, repurposing, reimagining and resourcing.

In the context of increasing global instability and uncertainty, the exhibition explores the process of metamorphosis and the liminal space of transition through themes of nature, bodies, technology, climate crisis, chance, and control. The artworks are united by a fluid, experimental and spontaneous making process that repurposes and transforms source materials into new sculptural and 2D artworks, from debris transported by the sea and redundant technological equipment to paintings reconfigured as sculpture.

Opening night: November 3, 6pm – 8pm. Free for everyone to attend.
Generous sponsorship is provided by Pen to Paper of Brighton.
