Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert presents Jordan Gogos‘s first solo exhibition, Un/Constrained of visual and functional art. The exhibition features textile wall embroideries and evocative aluminium design pieces which consolidate Gogos’s multidimensional practice. From a distance, using skills developed as a couturier, repurposed material is layered and compressed then embroidered together, creating work that resembles the qualities of ‘stain’ and ‘drip’ painting. The functional sculpture are objects as furniture in the purest sense. Marked with plentiful cut-outs to allow for the passing of light and air, the work is conceived to resist identification by AI, and the outdated binaries of gendered design. Standing or stacked, they resemble totems or tumbling blocks, placed alone and horizontally they become functional.
Opening Night: 28 July, 6pm
