Void Gallery is delighted to present new work made specifically for Void by two emerging artists; Laura Morrison and Maite Zabala.

Concerned with the making of objects, texts and images that sit both firmly in a sculptural tradition and necessarily untether from these bounds, the artists create distinctly different works and conscientiously address materiality and object making in their approaches.

Visceral and unapologetic, the exhibition does little to shy away from the preconceptions and complexities faced by two emerging female artists.

Provocative, not in its antagonism, but in its sense of responsibility and savvy recognition of the politics of aesthetics, the exhibition aptly offers itself as a compelling addition to the programme at Void Gallery for the 2013 City of Culture.

The two works run at Void on Patrick Street until May 3.
