Blind Alchemy is the second in a series of collaborative projects between artists Rachel Adams and Ian Giles.
This exhibition delights in the ‘home-made’ nature of alchemy rather than its wider possibilities. Adams and Giles have been intrigued by the alchemy that colours the everyday with its magic. One of the pursuits of the alchemist – turning lead into gold – lies in the void between scientific procedure and magical reaction. Turning nothing into something is a key part of both artist’s work.
