Force Quit, the latest exhibition at the Bristol gallery Works | Projects, features drawings and models from the artist’s recent projects

The exhibition, comprised of work largely from the past four years, approaches the artist’s projects through their preparatory works.

Force Quit shows the development of perhaps his most famous installation 20:50, a room half-filled with highly reflective sump oil, from the original version at Matt’s Gallery in 1987 to the most recent incarnation at the Red Jail, Sulaymaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan, 2009.

The exhibition also explores the projects 18 Holes, Wilson’s contribution to Folkstone Triennial, Square the Block, the recently unveiled architectural intervention into the facade of the London School of Economics, and features models showing the various iterations of Wilson’s project Turning the Place Over, the 10 metre wide motorized disk in the facade of an abandoned building.

There will be an artist talk in collaboration with Spike Island Associates on Wednesday 20 January at 6pm

Admission to exhibition and talk are free.
