Born in Power
Born in Power considers the power of photography and film to capture and create constructs of identity. This exhibition unpacks the history of photography as a colonial tool, an imperial weapon of racial violence and objectification.
This exhibition highlights some of the many sculptures in the Gallery’s collection made of bone.
The bone is from a variety of animals and demonstrates the imagination of the artists who worked with the eccentric shapes of the raw material.

The Silhouettes and Cutaways of Ivan Eyre
Aug 17 '20 Feb 21 '21
This exhibition presents a selection of Ivan Eyre’s series of “silhouettes”, and “cutaways”. It also studies his fascination with using everyday structures, such as the windowsill or a common packing box as a framing device. For Eyre, these structures were a gateway for “looking through”—and beyond—physical reality as we may commonly perceive it.
