“Elton 7 was part of Adam John Cullen‘s recent exhibition at the gallery which featured a number of urn-like vessels containing personal objects and artifacts, past works and pigmented plasters. He creates a personal archeology, buying, excavating and recontextualising personal narratives. The end results are elegant objects that appear as they could be relics from a distant past, or from a science fiction future.”
