Three artists come together to showcase their most recent work. Annette Chang will occupy gallery 2 with her latest installation ‘White’, Pimpisa Tinpalit’s installation ‘The Beauty in Death’ will occupy gallery three and the cupboard, and Polly Hollyoak’s ‘Vilomah’ offers a series of black and grey text-based paintings in gallery 4
