Interspatial Nyx Mathews | ANCA EASS Award Exhibition 2017
10 October – 21 October 2018
Exhibition Opens 6pm Wed 10 October 2018
Nyx Mathews’ central interest is in the interaction of anthropogenic environments and human beings. Through a broad range of media, with a focus on experimental material processes, the artist makes work that question the artificial landscapes and interior spaces we are encouraged to accept as standard.
As a maker who deals in human-scale objects, not office towers, Mathews has no power to directly alter this environment; but to propose alternatives instead. Through speculative, materially ambiguous, often slightly unsteady objects Mathews questions the increasingly homogenous, textureless, sometimes explicitly inhuman structures and spaces common to contemporary built environments.
