Transformism: Melanie Jackson & Revital Cohen
Last chance to see Transformism, closes 9 March 2013.
John Hansard Gallery, Southampton, SO17 1BJ, UK
Transformism shows two new commissions by Melanie Jackson and Revital Cohen. Both artists, through their distinctive practices, have made works exploring their interests in how cultural archetypes and ideas interweave with science and technology to create new shapes, visual forms and structures.
As we develop the tools to manipulate and engineer new forms and systems of life, the exhibition considers our historical and contemporary entanglements with nature, technology and the economy, and how these relationships influence emergent forms in biological and synthetic matter, through new sculpture, installation and moving image works.

Melanie Jackson, The Urpflanze (Part 2)
28 March-12 May 2013
Opening Wednesday 27 March
Melanie Jackson in conversation with Esther Leslie, Friday 26 April 6.30-8.30pm
Flat Time House, 210 Bellenden Road, London SE15 4BW
In a series of moving image works and ceramic sculptures, Melanie Jackson continues her ongoing investigation into mutability and transformation, which takes its lead from Goethe’s concept of an imaginary primal plant, the Urpflanze, that contained coiled up within it the potential to unfurl all possible future forms. Jackson's multifaceted work will be installed throughout the ground floor of Flat Time House, the former home and studio of artist John Latham. Her exploration into the Urpflanze is closely aligned with Latham’s preoccupation with ‘the event’. Common to Latham’s works and Jackson’s The Urpflanze (Part 2) there is an opening of the boundaries through and between objects, bodies, non-human and human events, sentient and inert material.
