‘UNDERPINNINGS’ – MARK RAUTENBACH, 25 OCT – 30 NOV 2019
Mark Rautenbach’s latest body of work looks at unseen forces and tensions which are inside, beneath, behind and between visible things. Materially, this is expressed by securing, stretching and suspending fine, colourful hand-knitted circular fabrics attached by small gold safety pins. These materials have no intrinsic value and as separate objects they go largely unnoticed. However, when combined in such a manner, they give form to something striking, complex, vital, and compelling.
