FIX FIX FIX at Gallery SO - 92 Brick Lane

An exhibition of objects that have been “fixed”  from different broken objects which have been “perfectly” repaired or have incorporated the fault line into its reconstitution. The exhibition, curated by Glenn Adamson, a tutor at the RCA and head of research at the Victoria & Albert museum,  brings together a vast scale of “fixed” items - from small coins to grand pianos.

These are sharply contrasted by the harsh geometry of her later paintings.
