Wayne Youle: Look Mum No Hands

14 Apr to 03 Sep

This major solo exhibition features new and recent works in all manner of media, from a glistening cobweb in imitation gold chain and a supersized tyre swing, to hand knitted balaclavas and cast bronze gumballs.

Deftly blending humour and provocation, Youle’s works traverse a range of concerns, including how different cultures perceive and label each other and how intangible qualities like loss, aging and love elude our attempts at measurement and explanation.

Meticulously made and crisply presented, they all demonstrate Youle’s ability to complicate a simple visual premise with the lingering aftertaste of ambiguity.
