Four by 1 is a collaborative body of work by It’s Kind Of Hard to explain and Adam McGowan. The works fuse with the structural properties of the source park building creating an idealogical blurring of the functional and the arbitrary. Utilising a limited variety of materials and techniques, elements of craft and artifice are used to create subtle interventions. Referencing the unoccupied, the empty and the actions of taking and receiving- like that of a container.
The bowl, the shadows, the leaking skylight, the scuffed grain, the waves, the up and down, the round and round.
