Robbie Rowland's bends things that shouldn't be bent, lamp posts, desks, filling cabinets, beds and oars. Robbie Rowland peeled spaces in his 'Grace In Ruin' exhibition, he lets us look at things in new ways as new structures, removed from there practical application.
"Rowland takes objects that are often forgotten, invisible or transparent to us, objects that exist on the verge of disappearance, and stages a kind of 'breakdown', inviting us to rediscover the object, poised somewhere between what it was and what it might become." Simon Cooper
