Drawing exclusively from the Artbank collection, Grey Matter takes as its formative logic the relationship between the gallery, the adjoining collection storage facility and the dispersal of that collection into domestic and corporate environments. The project assembles a selection of works rendered within the broad spectrum between black and white, focussing on artists working with and within restrained palettes. These works consider the representation of binaries, be they concerned with questions of light and dark, political opposition, ethics or morality, while other works reflect upon the ambiguities of the grey area.
