Shaping the Void II
This exhibition presents eight artists exploring notions of nothingness. Offering different entry points into ideas of the void, the works share a visual language rooted in abstraction and minimalism.


Following the first instalment of ‘Shaping the Void’ at Bankley Gallery in Manchester, the second part of the exhibition expands the concept of the void as interpreted in eastern philosophy and spirituality, with the aim to invite additional interpretations within contemporary practice. Touching on shared ideas surrounding presence and absence, formlessness, time and space, impermanence and stillness, these works suggest a more secular understanding of the void as nothingness.

Working across painting, printmaking, site-specific drawing and sculpture, the artists reveal a hidden view in a search for an essence of something seen, felt or experienced. The works ask questions rather than give answers; call for intuition rather than logic; and open up a space for contemplation and intimacy.

Open: Sat & Sun 4 to 31 March, 12- 6pm
