Southard Reid presents a group installation with new and recent work by Hany Armanious, Neal Jones, Joanna Piotrowska and Prem Sahib.

Working across photography, painting, sculpture and furniture making, the artists reference or evoke association with notions of home and domestic spaces. Framed by Jones's table, chairs and makeshift kitchen bench, the stand is sited as part domestic interior, shelter and retreat, decorated and utilitarian, arranged for both comfort and display.
