The relationship between an artist and their given material in the process of making can be quite idiosyncratic. It can be instinctive, indecisive, and deliberate, or not; it can show an indecisiveness that leads to a moment of assertiveness. It relates to making and unmaking, to moments of negotiation, to strong gestures and, often, a remarkable, unexpected outcome.

This exhibition gathers five artists who share a great deal of strength and a straightforward freshness in their work. Lorena Ancona, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Nao Matsunaga, Tiago Mestre and Anna-Bella Papp present works that suggest an open encounter, one I find very inspiring and engaging. There is an unusual assertiveness that can only come from the individual experience of making and unmaking, over and over again. The works, in their openness, offer a very raw form of belonging to the world. It’s hard to ignore the reach of their presence, even with such economy of means. I am glad that they are here, that they exist.
