GV Art is pleased to announce Graphite, a new group exhibition, curated by Robert Devcic. The artists involved have each engaged with this often over-looked medium within contemporary art. Dragan Ilic’s interactive sculpture features a snake-like piece of rubber stabbed with graphite pencils. Pippa Gatty’s series of drawings of space matter evokes a cabinet of collected information, both real and imagined. Anais Tondeur’s object based work details a narrative developed from a pathology specimen of a once swallowed pencil from St Bartholomew’s Pathology Museum. Graphite intends to reflect on these innovative and varying explorations by a group of artists, to encourage discussion surrounding the significance of the pencil, and question the belief that it is a perfunctory or archaic material.
