Lesley Foxcroft, Eye level, 2017. M.D.F., 10x190x15 cm

In the first room upstairs there are works, such as Folds and Knotted, in industrial rubber, a relatively new material for the English artist, who has always worked with simple, basic raw materials of fundamental everyday use, such as paper, cardboard and medium-density fibre board (MDF). In these works, as well as in the Eye Level installation in the second room on the upper floor, Foxcroft adopts a strict, austere visual language to manipulate the material and create forms not normally associated with it.

The ability to bring out aspects of the material that are usually not found in its everyday use is clear to see also in Stacked and Milan Corner, as well as in the other works in MDF that are on show on the lower floor of the gallery. Foxcroft manages to combine the flexibility of the raw material in a perfect balance with the simplicity of functional elements – such as hooks, eyelets, clamps and screws – in such a way as to create a new entity, a new ensemble, that guides our perception in a clear new manner that is both logical and rational.

On the occasion of the exhibition a catalogue will be published with illustrations of the works on display and updated bio-bibliographical notes.
