Roger Ackling

September 23 - October 30, 2004

This exhibition was our first by Roger Ackling. Installed by the artist in a response to the gallery spaces, many of the works were tiny sculptural objects no more than 2 inches in size. Working with driftwood and everyday objects - clothes pegs, reels, doorknobs, often in combination with elastic bands or mapping pins - Ackling's works have a quiet presence but also a seemingly contradictory and powerful capacity to transform the space that surrounds them.
