  • Maximum Overdrive Takeover
    Julia Crabtree and William Evans

  • Focal Point Gallery

Focal Point Gallery presents a gallery takeover by artists Julia Crabtree and William Evans. This one-off event includes the premier launch of a newly commissioned film piece which will be presented across the 4-channel digital projection space in gallery 1, thereafter becoming part of the daily exhibition, 'Maximum Overdrive'.

Crabtree and Evan’s work explores the performativity of objects and everyday materials. Sculptures punctuating the space gesture towards creeping forms or fluid masses pooling in the main gallery as a collapsed terrain. Material and tactile, the work encourages the viewer to become conscious of their own body’s positioning in relation to the multiple organic and digital components of the exhibition, to both invite and overwhelm.
