For those of you who might be thinking of coming to the exhibition at Espacio Gallery, "Heaven and Hell", the curatorial team have posted an introdution to the exhibition on their website.


 Cocoon , A collaborative piece  by Elspeth Penfold and Ignacio Canete Sanchez

Heaven and Hell
9 January - 2 February 2014 

Preview: Thursday 9 January 6-9pm
The question we started with in creating this show was: how would contemporary artists respond to this subject?  In our secular culture, where there is no otherworldly accountability for our behaviour, where we expect our needs and even our wants to be met here and now, where the consumerist imperative leaves little room for postponement of desires, would the theme find any resonance at all?
