About the Book
The Set Theory series of exhibitions deal with the overlapping personal dialogues between artists over a period of time and based around a central nexus-point artist, engaging with the intellectual and practical shared concerns and discussions held between them. This year’s inaugural choice as the nexus-point artist is Roland Reiss.
British artist Susan Collis is known for intricate facsimiles of everyday gallery objects, which force viewers to reconsider details they may not have initially paid attention to, such as screws, pieces of wood, brooms, and painter’s cloth which reflect the installation and clean-up processes behind the scenes of the gallery, but that are composed of exotic materials, gems and precious metals.
