Push & Pull – Will Cruickshank
15th Jun 2018
Aspex presents their summer exhibition Push & Pull, featuring new work from the artist Will Cruickshank. The exhibition comprises large sculptural works in wood, plaster and thread, alongside a series of woven hangings.
Cruickshank’s work experiments with form and materials, and processes of invention and making. Push & Pull alludes to the relationship between material, machine and maker. This push and pull reflects a process grounded in discovering by doing, by making, and in ideas of thinking through making.
The exhibitions runs from 22 June – 16 September, and throughout the summer there will be an opportunity for members of the public to explore Cruickshank’s work at an intimate Coffee & Conversation event (£5.00 per person). Aspex has also launched The Inventors, a programme of free workshops for people of all ages and abilities, exploring Push & Pull’s central themes of invention and innovation.
