Matt Calderwood - Paper Over the Cracks

15th March - 23rd June 2013

For his solo exhibition at BALTIC 39, his first in a public gallery in the UK, Grey Area artist Matt Calderwood will create a series of ambitious new sculptures which explore decaying and collapsing systems and the impact of environment and process on simple everyday materials. Made of fragile, degradable materials and interlocking elements, the works will be installed on the gallery?s roof terrace where they will weather and decompose, their delicate surfaces recording their exposure and deterioration. They will then be dismantled and reassembled over the course of the exhibition. Calderwood will also present a site-specific sculptural video installation showing new and recent films, each documenting a performance in which the artist experiments with balance, tension, instability and risk.

Furthermore an ongoing program of lectures, films and events are presented in a built-in amphitheatre throughout the festival.
