The exhibition puts forward a selection of sculptural propositions of an emerging generation of promising artists. The Dye House´s generous space offers the opportunity to present a conglomeration of several larger works and expansive installations to be shown in relation to one another without infringing on the individual pieces´ respective comfort zones. The sculptural bodies, which inhabit the space are being made to feel at ease, so they can confidently take their place in relation to their accomplices and hatch new plans together, as well as respectively creating new dialogues between the artists and their works. While shapes are distinct to their producer's vision, once released out of the studio and into the playing field of a space dedicated to welcoming them in their diversity, each object or idea takes a turn in resonating with the population of hard edges and soft curves, flimsy tarps and raspy surfaces. Vibrations are transmitted and received, truncated, distorted and spewn back again.
