The Grammar of Glitch

In evolutionary biology it is the mutation that drives changes in offspring to help species adapt to shifting environmental circumstances. Some apparent errors adn mistakes are the answers to problems that are often unseen. The Grammar of Glitch takes a look at how the language of this processed is expressed in artwork. Whether through fragmentation of the visual field in landscape drawings or the distorted forms of the sculptural figure, this exhibition offers ways of understanding how glitches in systematic regularity can produce creative ends.
