THE UNIVERSE CLEFT TO THE CORE
10 April - 7 May 2016

Dorothy Cross, Grace Weir, Richard Wentworth

The Universe Cleft to the Core is the inaugural show at DE LEÓN and features the work of Dorothy Cross, Grace Weir and Richard Wentworth. The exhibition is a ‘metaphorical fugue’ on space, time, light, and mortality, and our perceptions of reality and its inherent ambiguity. The exhibition is installed in a private 18th century Georgian house and the works selected, as well as new works by these artists, connect with the history and materiality of the house, as well as to the title of the exhibition.
