Miles Thurlow presents new work made specifically for this exhibition at 36 Lime Street, that explores the proximity of art to the decorative and the banal. Fountains and gardens, traditional expressions of civilisation, state, and prosperity are reduced to their most fundamental constituents and reconfigured as depleted monuments assembled from consumer objects acquired by the artist.


Miles Thurlow was born in Colchester, Essex in 1975 and studied Sculpture at Loughborough College of Art & Design (1995-1997) and at Newcastle University (1998 - 2000). Previous exhibitions include Kunstraum, London; Glasgow International; Baltic, Gateshead; Royal Standard, Liverpool Biennale; Malgras Naudet, Manchester; Edinburgh Art Festival. He lives and works in Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead.
