In celebration of ALICE BLACK’s one year anniversary, ‘In the manner of smoke’ brings together 9 contemporary artists in exploration of the wordless exchange that takes place between the body, the landscape, and the creative process. It is a show about osmosis and correspondence, multiplicity and synthesis. The works included by Venetia Berry, Ivan Black, Daniel Chadwick, Tanya Ling, Rory Menage, Nina Royle and Laura Wormell express a direct carnal affinity with our natural surroundings - in the manner of smoke, the exhibition seeks to reveal a relationship of fluid borders which goes far beyond language.
