Plot Bunny is the new exhibition by Beatriz Olabarrieta that is coming to the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art this May. It marks her first institutional show in the UK.

I don’t know what to make of this sculpture by Beatriz Olabarrieta. It looks like a party for airbags. But what other people make of her assemblages are very much part of Plot Bunny, her new show at the NGCA. The Spanish born, London based artist will be creating a series of site-specific sculptures that will act as a catalyst for newly commissioned texts over the duration of the exhibition. By inviting figures from a variety of disciplines, including art, architecture, theatre and TV, the artist will give a range of disparate voices to her assemblages. Central to the exhibition is Olabarrieta’s intention to explore how language lives both inside and around objects. The exhibition will culminate in a series of events with each component becoming an ensemble, transforming the exhibition space into a stage. Imagine!

Beatriz Olabarrieta: Plot Bunny, 5 June-11 July, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, City Library & Arts Centre, Fawcett Street, Sunderland. ngca.co.uk
