The circle is a powerful symbolic form that holds a vast array of different associations throughout visual culture. This universal shape embodies our physical reality, from minute microscopic structures like the atom to the grandiose scale of the planetary giants. The circle has also been utilized to help understand and define our inner worlds as a symbol of balance and wholeness in psychological and spiritual practices. For ëWholeí we have asked a variety of artists from different backgrounds and stylistic approaches to create a work using this motif.

Opening Night 20th of April, 6pm
