Mark Woods: Absorption at Cross Lane Projects in Kendal
Mark Woods

Absorption at Cross Lane Projects, Kendal and Sedbergh 24 July — 18 September 2021 Entrance is free

Cross Lane Projects in Kendal, Cumbria, is excited to announce it will reopen this summer with an exhibition by Mark Woods.

Absorption will feature objects, vignettes and photographs of elaborate artefacts housed in a purposely designed environment that aims to enhance viewers’ disorientation and surprise.

Visitors are invited to peer through small openings to view Wood’s evocative work. Blurring the boundaries between fine art, fetish objects, and items from a cabinet of curiosities, Woods’ art compels viewers to confront their inner feelings and desires.

Woods was recently selected as a highlight of London Art Fair: Edit 2021 by CEO & Editor in Chief of Artlyst, Paul Carter Robinson FRSA.

Curated by Vanya Balogh, Absorption takes inspiration from the renowned ‘International Surrealist Exhibition’ held at Galérie Beaux-Arts, Paris, in 1938. The exhibition featured leading surrealist artists including André Breton, Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Leonora Carrington, and challenged the existing conventions surrounding exhibition viewing.

Mark Woods is a British artist with a background in contemporary jewellery production and boat building. Woods is best known for his highly elaborate artefacts that blur the boundaries between fine art, fetish objects.
