12 October – 15 December 2017, London
Ventique is pleased to present the current exhibition ‘London Geodes: The Beauty Inside’ featuring work by artist Matt Marga. The exhibition explores the contrast between the nondescript stone exterior of geodes and the hidden secrets within; quartz crystals, agate or amethyst. This desire to extract beauty references Marga’s ambition to unearth the hidden beauty within us; referencing how the cover of a book does not always reveal its contents. In the exhibition, he explores these ideas through sculpture; the outer surface of the geode rock is reimagined and recreated in metal with a crack cutting through, revealing shimmering hand-cut, individually placed crystals within. Each London Geode takes its name from a London street; the sparkling crystal mapping out the geometric urban landscape while also highlighting the city’s impact on Marga’s practice.
The exhibition runs from 12th October – 15th December 2017
Monday – Friday: 9.30-17.30, Sunday 11.00-17.00 and other times by appointment
