Marianne Spurr
7th May - 18th June 2016


Supplement is pleased to present a solo exhibition by London based artist Marianne Spurr. The exhibition features new wall and floor based sculptural works that continue the artist’s experimental and process led practice. Central to Spurr’s practice is the on-going activity of accumulation, organisation and classification of found materials and quotidian objects.

Spurr thinks through her materials, in search of something, an event or an understanding. Through various processes she explores and tests the material relationships between objects in search of free and poetic associations. She remains open to identifying these associations, which begin to reveal themselves through their formal relationships.

Guided by an intuitive process or logic, Spurr uses the exhibition space as a site to further explore and expand upon these material relationships. Time is spent working in situ, connecting and threading elements and activities through arrangement and installation, a process analogous to ‘tuning’ the energy or resonance within and between elements.

The subtle play of the artist’s hand registers as a particular intervention upon an object – these are often simple actions, such as tracing or threading a line, rolling a mat, stretching fabric. These interventions all hint towards an appeal to an imperfect order; distorted and stretched lines, rolled grids, and disrupted or irregular patterns or surfaces. There is an element of performance, of things in motion or still in the making, where a sense of actions breathed in through the body and out through the materials is tangible.
