Taking a copper mine as a source of inspiration this exhibition explores the creative destruction involved in the act of construction. The mine is represented as a large hollow sculpture in the gallery and loose cardboard boxes represent the ‘ore’ that has been extracted from inside.
The public are invited to move, stack, connect and build with this ore while occupying and considering the empty space left behind. The exhibition also explores displacement: of an idea, of a material. Cardboard boxes are the perfect material for expressing a thing displaced, these connect together with magnets.
Jenny is the director of architectural design practice Craftedspace.
