––  Bouvetøya  ––

Bouvetøya – a solo show of new work by Freddy Dewe Mathews.
Iinspired by the uninhabited volcanic island of Bouvetøya - 54°25'S, 3°21'E - an island that few ships pass near, and a place that is rarely visited, Bouvetøya sees the artist explore historical examples of human attempts to impose themselves on this harsh, uninhabited landmass - the most isolated in the world.
