Cut with the kitchen knife
A Nets Victoria Touring Exhibition curated by Emily Jones

Cut with the kitchen knife surveys the current manifestations of collage in contemporary art; the arranging and reordering of collected material as a means of interacting with, and thus shaping, the physical world.
Featuring works by artists including Christian Capurro, Simon Evans, Elizabeth Gower, Mandy Gunn, Deborah Kelly, Nicholas Mangan, Stuart Ringholt, Joan Ross and Heather Shimmen, Cut with the kitchen knife explores the use of collected material; arranging and reordering as a means of interacting with, and thus shaping, the physical world.
