Open – to misinterpretation?

Zuzushii Art Laboratory is currently staging an exhibition in celebration of the ambiguous. A visual, vibrant journey through 2 and 3D collage, mixed media assemblage, sculpture, prints and total abstraction. Taking part are Fumico Azuma, Tim Can, Peter Quinnell, James Roseveare, Mark Soye and April Yasamee. There’s much to see on many levels and some of the exhibition will be rotated over the duration, so visiting more than once is recommended. 

Saturday 31st July, to Saturday 21st August. Gallery opening times are from 10am to 5pm, Wednesday to Sunday. Info at:
