Gyre comprises site responsive installation, sculpture and moving image works that repurpose and re-contextualise objects that gauge and harness weather-related phenomena.
Francis reconstitutes the relations of these objects through their spatial and temporal positioning within the gallery space to explore the way in which the passing of time is perceived.

Priscilla Beck's exhibition Unnamed questions the meaning of art-making and experience within a gallery space. The installation is created by repairing the gallery with porcelain clay, which, over time, shrinks, cracks and falls away. The work contemplates and critiques medium, material and site.

Alexandra Spence's The cities, they tremble is a three-part audio-visual installation that traces the connections between place, identity and sound. The exhibition presents three works that consider the dynamic nature of the world, using sound as a way to reveal vibrancy within 'inanimate' domestic objects.
