thoughts are metallic they melt in salt water

Tom Blake

17 February – 7 April 2024

Drawing its title from a line by Etel Adnan, thoughts are metallic they melt in saltwater approaches the gallery as a coastal stream – specifically a spinning eddy – where the water pauses for a moment before combining with the sea. The exhibition comprises a series of new cyanotypes, wire drawings, looping videos and de-silvered mirrors, each containing an array of recurring elements which together become the silt – fragments suspended within a stream – spinning, falling, rising, dissolving.
