With Torch and Spear: Constructing Collage.

Titled after Joseph Cornell’s collage film By Night With Torch and Spear (1950’s), the exhibition takes this experimental and rarely exhibited film work and Eduardo Paolozzi’s Moonstrips Empire News (1967) as starting points to imaginatively explore the legacy of the process and the extent that collage can be used to create non-linear analogies. The title alludes to both the poetic and practical nature of the process

Here, collage is seen not simply as a technique but an overarching procedure that artists use to rethink structure as a kind of topological relief that invites the viewer to scrutinize layers as if they are plans for an alternative landscape.
