"Matt Golden: Two Drops a cloud makes"
2007-06-19 until 2007-07-01
UK United Kingdom
Campbell Works is pleased to present the first Autonomous Series,
a new curatorial project by Alli Beddoes, which includes a research laboratory, presenting two new solo shows, two discussion evenings, and an accompanying film programme. Matt Golden " Two Drops a cloud make" opened on
19 June and continues through 1 July, 2007. As part of the Autonomous Series at Campbell Works, Matt Golden will be exhibiting a series of newly commissioned work. Each piece is curious, poetic and ephemeral whilst embracing the material and psychological frictions between
the public and the private realm.
This exhibition manages to revere both the found object and the handmade,
rigor and chaos, aspiring ideas of preservation, reconstruction and preparation.
His works are conceptual rhymes that read as visual haikuís. A scaffold tower,
often used during exhibition installations, has been highly polished and the
platform replaced with a rare and beautiful wood displays Goldenís sensibility
to materials and how we experience a space and, subconsciously, its architectural
histories that are combined within it.
Discussion evening: While the city breathes 27th June 2007, 7 to 9pm
A silent discussion with artists, curators, architects and designers.
Film programme: 23rd June 2007, from 2pm with tea and cakes.

Malcolm Le Grice, John Smith, Chris Welsby, George Barber, Rosalind Nashashibi.
