Tom Polo is included in the exhibition ‘Contact Us’, alongside Emma Finneran and Campbell Patterson, opening tonight at Cement Fondu.
The exhibition invites the three artists to trace gestures and other ethereal and tangible actions through video, installation and painting. It is on until 3 May.
Tom Polo hones in on the physical and emotional zones of contact between people, to describe the modes of our interpersonal relationships and the trace we leave on each other in touch and tone. In doing this, Polo thinks about how our hands, eyes and mouths act as the communicative pit-stop between desire and will.
