Sep 11 – Nov 14
In her first solo exhibition in Asia, Virginia Overton presents new sculpture and works on paper.
On display is a new body of work which sees the artist reassemble aluminium advertising signs salvaged from the facades of high-rise corporate buildings into new sculptural forms. The exhibition also includes new works on paper, in which Overton uses adhesive vinyl to create graphic compositions evoking three-dimensional forms.
