Exo- ostracism in objects is the first solo show of Visual Artist Charles Thorburn. With a diverse range of Sculpture and 2D work, this exhibition investigates our complicated relationship with the structural paraphernalia that make up much of the spaces we navigate on a daily basis.

“Sparsely presented, his minimal works are highly crafted adaptations of intuitively selected and displaced objects... consisting of prosaic remnants of everyday objects, his works carry tremendous weight in their removed nature.”
- Rory Biddulph, Co- Editor of CANNED magazine

Taking place at Motorcade Flash Parade, the Private View is on the evening of Wednesday 23rd November with music, food and drinks available. The exhibition will run up to and including Sunday 27th November.
