Part of the What a Tool Project 

Curated by Jude van der Merwe

Olga Cironis, Geoffrey Drake-Brockman, Kevin Draper, Stuart Elliott, Sarah Elson, Dawn Gamblen, Phil Gamblen, Peter Hill, Angela McHarrie, Denise Pepper, Monique Tippett and Tony Windberg reflected on the tools they employ in their arts practice and reminded us that, as makers and thinkers, tools are an essential part of an artist’s life. Works presented encapsulated the conventional and the technological to the metaphorical, with a number of artists drawn to concepts of an earlier history and tradition.
