With the six wall-based objects in this exhibition, Angus McCrum tells a different story. He made these works using pieces of wood with previous lives. Pieces from broken objects, discarded, forgotten, and deemed unusable. Angus McCrum reclaims their terminal state, showing that even a final existence is always transitory. And continues the story where it has been declared over, teaching me that wood can be taken for what it is and go beyond its potential to work for you.
