press release

the quality of being nothing 

'things are either devolving toward, or evolving from, nothingness'

Mawby and Hosaka reunite during the Wirksworth Festival, to continue their investigation into the theme of nothingness.

In their previous project they tackled the theme by limiting themselves to a stack of white paper as their only material to explore the moment at which something ceases being nothing and emerges as a recognized form.

Confronting the natural desire to constrain things to their natural form, the artists will take all the art pieces created during their previous project and submerge them into a tank of water.

Through the destruction of their creations they will begin to question whether they are causing a premature end to their transient lives, or enabling a beginning to a new life, allowing the chance for something to emerge from and into nothingness.

"In releasing our pieces from the constraints of their current form we can embrace the value of potential, as they once again become alive with possibilities."
