‘(Probably) no images are utterly silent’ – Mónica Rivas Velásquez at Pump House Gallery




Working with drawing, spoken word and collage, (Probably) no images are utterly silent by artist Mónica Rivas Velásquez unpicks the relationship between text and image.

Drop in to Pump House Gallery’s Project Space where visitors are invited to create layers of abstract drawings as we question the varied language used when presenting and representing nature.

Visit the space at any time during exhibition hours to create your own response to both real and fictitious descriptions of minerals, inspired by the work of Roger Caillois, his mineral collection and his writing on stones.

Combining natural, hand made and industrial materials such as sand, chalk, light boxes and tape, drawings will accumulate throughout each day creating a collection of individual and collective work.

Family workshops

Alongside the InHouse Project, join artist Mónica Rivas Velásquez for a series of workshops expanding our ideas of what drawing can be, and questioning how we define what is natural and what is artificial.

Play with patterns found in minerals to create drawings that spill out over the Project Space’s walls and windows, taking over the gallery terrace. Design typefaces, film ephemeral drawings using unexpected natural materials, or take up the challenge of becoming iridescent.

Drop in every other Sunday for exploring how drawing can become sculptures, films and choreographies, taking on new lives.
