Focusing on works that use materials drawn from daily life, this exhibition explores a sense of collage as a way of thinking through the world.

Artist James Richards has organised a show where exhibition-making is explored as a kind of collage or composition that brings together works in an intuitive and associative way.

Drawing features prominently alongside photography and video, and artists include KHISHVI, Dani ReStack, Torsten Slama, Cathy Wilkes, JX Williams, Wojciech Bąkowski, Christian Friedrich, Isa Genzken and Tolia Astakhishvili.

The works in A Slight Ache are by a diverse group, coming from a range of generations and geographies and installed in a way that sculpts a narrative. Works remain discreet and intact but, across the overall arc of the show, a picture is formed in the mind of the viewer, making a case for art-making as something private, impulsive and devotional.
