Shift is an investigation into the continuity of change. For millennia humankind has witnessed change within natural and man-made environments, within the global community and, perhapsimperceptibly, within the individual. Simultaneously both reliable and unpredictable, the only constant on which we can be certain is humanity’s capacity to adapt.   

This exhibition brings together artists whose works explore the various faces of change, from the transformative to the destructive. When shown together the work of Duke Albada, Chris Bennie, Joachim Froese, Sharmila Nezovic and Jude Roberts invites the viewer to consider the ever expanding meanings and interpretations of what it means to shift.  

In a world where metamorphosis is commonplace, change can be thrilling and can also inspire dread.  Only time is able to dictate which way we will shift.
