This exhibition, presented across BALTIC’s Level 3 and Level 4 galleries, will include work from throughout the artists’ career alongside those that have been specially commissioned. The exhibition architecture itself—an environment that is always fabricated—will also receive the artists’ treatment. Works such as Light me Black 2009, made from 144 florescent lights which temporarily overpowers the viewer with its bright light, and Scale of Things (to come), a staircase of chains and steel pipes, tread a fine line between the beautiful and the sinister. A significant body of drawing will also be included.
