The British-Argentinean artist Amalia Pica explores the material culture of bureaucracy.

Pica repurposes materials and motifs such as shredded paper, rubber stamps, office furniture and stationery to produce works that parody and subvert the bureaucratic systems.

The artist’s personal experience of obtaining British citizenship and the wider context surrounding the UK’s exit from the European Union provide a unifying conceptual framework for the exhibition.

Pica is known for her installations and sculptural works which explore forms of communication and realms of civic participation. The exhibition will comprise new works as well as the epic installation Joy in Paperwork: The Archive,(2016), presented originally at the 11th Gwangju Bienniale. This will be the first time it can be seen in its entirety in the UK.
