Works by Jane Dyer
Dyer19 April – 14 May

Dyer's works are grounded in a text-based language - primarily books and her sculptural objects and installations explore and challenge our investment in language and what happens when we dislocate it from its traditional reception. In Stutter, Dyer literally uses texts - books, magazines, newspapers are her material, only to erase it, paint it, fold it, superimpose it, stitch it shut and disguise it - all of which is designed to encourage the viewer to speculate and create new narratives - indeed to 'read' the works from a different perspective.
