Repetition sets up expectations and baffles them at both regular and irregular intervals. It draws attention, not to the object (word, image or sound), but to what lies between them.[i]


The exhibition Repetition brings together the diverse practice of seventeen contemporary artists, working across a range of media, including video, installation, performance, drawing, print and sculpture. Deployed as a motif, a theme, a technique, a mechanism or a function of communication, aspects of repetition establish each of the artworks in this exhibition, offering a momentary instance of connection within a diversity of artforms.
