Open Monday to Saturday 12-6pm

A recent news item reported that people are increasingly throwing away loose change. Those beautiful copper coins are, it seems, simply not worth hanging on to in an age of internet transactions and credit cards. As symbolic objects however, their cultural currency now outweighs their face value. At Tablet gallery Marion Coutts is showing a pair of new sculptural works made of money.

Tenner is made up of ten quid - a thousand pennies - stacked up in a single gleaming 6 ft column, rising upright from the floor to the height of a person.

A twinned coin piece, Breeder, has two low mounds rising from the gallery floor that appear to be growing, splitting or fusing from a liquid mass of scattered pennies.

Rigidity plays against fluidity, stack against spread, save against spend.

"...see: how money breeds, naked,
for your enjoyment, money's genitals on view, nothing concealed, the whole action.."
Rilke (Duino Elegies X)
