Volk Gallery is proud to present the work of Mysterious Cube. Each Volk artist is given a size limit and budget and left to their own devices. With this brief, Cube has produced a series of linoprints inspired by tales of ‘The Hairy Hand of the Ardler Multis’ - a disembodied hand thought to scurry around stairwells and stoops, terrorising residents of the Ardler estate until its demolition in 1996. Using descriptions found on social media, and archival imagery, this urban legend is shown back in it’s natural habitat, back amongst the brutalist beams.
Artist's Statement
The work of Mysterious Cube is a celebration of the unconventional and rebellious – monsters, unusual creatures, queer culture, and anti-capitalist sentiment. These themes combine with conceptual ideas around trying to create physical representations of intangible things, such as emotions and atmosphere.
Inspired most often by cultural beliefs that surround life, death, and the natural world, their work takes shape through many different disciplines, including painting, printmaking, sculpture, textile work, and found objects.
