A new exhibition curated by Crystal Bennes, "The Woman, The Gaze, The World" is loosely themed around a picking apart of the question of whether women see the world differently than men. Running from the 23rd April to the 3rd May with artists Catherine Hyland, Seulki Ki, Eugenia Ivanissevich, Victoria Jenkins and Alison Stolwood the exhibition presents each artist as offering a specific and personal take on photography as a medium and practice through various acts of filtering, of staging, of manipulating the "truth".
Each artists has been paired with a writer, who has been challenged to create a new piece of writing that responds, however indirectly, to the work of that artist and to the themes in question. The intention here is to add a layer of richness to the exhibition, particularly given the considerable crossover in the way photographers and writers approach reality.

Cd0xdsspi is the title of runner up Samara Scott's new project. The unpronounceable title comes from a text message the artist sent accidentally through her tight trouser pocket on a Friday night! Scott treats the space like a cleavage, a utilisation of a warm soft space for placing items. Objects are amassed from everyday life–sticky sweeties, warm-washed materials,
starchy dyed foodstuffs, chewyBlu-Tack, hand torn crusts of sponges and glittery rubbish
suggesting an underwater world of slow churning memories, synth pop or perhapsthe feeling
of a summer holiday in the Bosporus. The tempo dribbling between these erratic ‘mating
surfaces’ is hesitant, frustrated–a webby top layer scattering jerks of exclamation marks and
slurred pauses. The posing composition of ﬁzzy and soft edges and semi-undressed sediments
are a lasagna-sandwich of plastic nostalgia. On until 6th July.
