15 September - 2 October

Poet and philosopher Paul Valery states in his book Sea shells ‘a crystal, a flower or a shell stands out from the usual disorder that characterizes most perceptible things’. He is taking solace in the geometrical structure in these natural forms as a secure point in nature to meditate on. This shell however, also has the ability to feel more like a pressure cooker than a refuge. Both acting as the intimate cocoon we try to maintain around our own personal chaos, as well as a protection from outside turmoil - the protective skin doesn’t

necessarily get crushed, but the pressure it endures around it is palpable.

Curated by HAZE, an artist-led curatorial project co-founded by Camilla Bliss and Solanne Bernard.

2 September - 11 September

A group exhibition of 10 artists which reflect on this idea of the collective and containment. Born from a series of weekly zoom meetings between the curators during the pandemic where these womxn discussed personal histories and experiences of womxnhood. A collective was formed as means of survival and space for sharing and processing- a modern day campfire with the absence of heroes and violent battles won but rather a messy and intertwined collection of stories about struggle and survival. An endeavour grounded in collective healing and opening the conversation out to hear more stories of our shared realities.


Opening: 4 August, 18:00-21.00

Ecdysis _ Staffordshire Studios (Low Res)-19.jpg


An exhibition curated by Hannah Rowan exploring traces of touch that emerge through materials. Drawing on Ursula K. Le Guin’s ‘carrier bag theory of fiction’ and Karen Barad’s writings on touching and the inhuman, Ecdysis draws together artists working with notions of vessels, ritual, the animacy of matter, and the temporal transformation of materials.



Works from the fifteen artists in the exhibition draw on the complexities of layering, the building of time and the uncertainty of dualities—incorporating themes found between two scientific principles: the law of superposition in geology and the principle quantum superposition in quantum mechanics. The first dictates that the layering of sediment is made in time sequence, with the oldest strata at the bottom and the newest at the top; while the second describes the dualities exhibited by wave-particles at sub-atomic level, including light’s simultaneous and inseparable manifestation as both a particle and a wave. Superpositions is also the title of a great track from Nathan Paul Fake's 2006 debut album “Drowning in a Sea of Love”.
