Athena Papadopoulos: Cain and Abel Can’t and Able is temporarily closed until further notice. Please check the venue's website for the latest details.

A new body of work by Canadian- born artist Athena Papadopoulos that includes sound, sculpture and painting, and explores human dichotomies of reason and emotion.

Through a process of assemblage, Papadopoulos's work is formed of found objects amassed and collaged together. Traditional binary perceptions of gender and sexuality are uprooted and unfixed.

The exhibition is inspired by her recently published book Cain and Abel Can’t and Able, which gives the exhibition its title. Drawing from the biblical story of Cain and Able, Papadopoulos reflects on her own personal experiences of sibling rivalry and competition within romantic relationships but also, crucially, the struggle between good and evil.
