This Matter was an exploration into the physical nature of landscapes, drawing together the changing ideas of what is natural and what is unnatural in our surroundings.

The exhibtion was accompanied by a series of events and supersocials, bringing together artists and curators in discussion over a meal: Artist Sovay Berriman and curator Bryony Bond discussed their collaborative projects with artists and museum collections; Dr Timothy Martin – lecturer in Architecture and Cultural Theory at Leicester University, discussed the life and work of Robert Smithson; a screening of films selected by the curators and a build-you-own (un)natural disaster workshop.
