Dressing The Air is a unique open resource that aims to enrich creative thinking by encouraging a multi-sensory approach. A constantly evolving archive and creative news feed, Dressing The Air monitors and reports on a diverse range of art-forms from cinema to sculpture, painting to furniture design, land-art to perfumery.

Gilberto Zorio

Zorio has worked with found material, the discarded and the unwieldy since the 60s. What is striking about this show, in the juxtaposition of old work with new (some of it made for this venue) is the clarity of a language which feels quite timeless. It is very difficult to date the pieces and the surprising economy applied to the artist's ideas presents us with a very naked and direct body of work. Zorio's use of chemicals, electricity, sound and light, force a very physical experience of his pieces which are menacingly beautiful and succinct.
