Erin Shirreff

Inside the White Cube


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

In a variety of media, including photography, sculpture and video, Erin Shirreff exploits the everyday ambiguity of objects to create work that is at once austere and suggestive. In a new series of 31 unique photographs, of which five will be exhibited, Shirreff conjures celestial bodies from the most commonplace of sources. She will also exhibit a a group of five shelf-mounted sculptures in pigmented plaster that present the viewer with a range of mysterious forms stacked together like an alien, geometrical archive. One of two new videos takes as its subject an image of Medardo Rosso's sculpture Madame X. Shirreff invites the viewer to wonder whether the objects she makes or depicts harbour information or substance, or whether the essence of these objects resides only in their tactile surfaces and jagged contours.
