A form of material intelligence, or unconscious materialism, can be seen operating beneath everyday relations between people, materials and things. The artists in this exhibition investigate materials and approaches to art-making that illuminate a variety of ‘symptoms’ related to oppression and repression (personal, social, and historical): obsessive collecting, recycled or discarded materials, outdated and deskilled processes, objects invested with memory and attachment, base materialism, and matter loaded with class, sexual, gendered, racial and ethnic connotations.
