ALCHEMY! invites artists based in the UK and Egypt to interpret the concept of Alchemy through their work.
The drive to transmute raw matter into something else is part of artistic practice; the process and transformation of material is an integral part of art making. Whether it is about focusing on alchemical processes in the making, or represent the historic art of alchemy in a new way, the exhibition will explore ideas of transformation, perfection, material / non-material and the messy struggle to achieve one’s own Great Work.
