47 Canal presents a group show of drawings and small-scale sculptures. Bringing together work by 13 of its artists, 47 Canal’s presentation focuses on the materials and ideas shared across its roster.

The booth consists of new and existing works by each of the artists. All artists utilize similarly traditional sculptural materials such as ceramic, metal and silicon and techniques such as resin casting, though with markedly differing results. By pulling together the works in this way, the presentation demonstrates that whilst the artists’ technical approaches may vary greatly, they are all connected by their relationship to material. One recurring theme is the body, and its relationship to desire and labour.
