Kylie Stillman: Not fully or properly either of two things

In Kylie Stillman’s first solo exhibition at Town Hall Gallery, she will present 20 years of practice as well as new sculptural works. Stillman is drawn to overlooked or discarded objects, in which she can imbue a new materiality and meaning. Sheets of plywood, furniture and more are approached with a unique sensibility for negative space – for example she uses pinprick holes to depict a forest through Venetian blinds and a flock of birds cut across the fore edges of a deaccessioned collection of books.
