On entering the Gallery space a rather tall lady stood on the left turns directly incoming visitors and says sternly “We must do this for the good of the country” which I found fantastically ambiguous and intriguing. This show was a visual and conceptual Pandora’s box of ideas with good outcomes housed within this well curated industrial semi derelict chic environment, which truly comes together to provide a pleasant experience.
