Marcus Taylor's interest in mirror images, explored earlier in stainless steel sculptures and Rorschach blot-like drawings, finds ingenious expression in a new work in layered mdf that occupies (and links) three floors of The Tannery, 57 Bermondsey Street, London SE1. Experience of the sculpture is a matter of memory as well as immediate perception; its central axis proves to be at half the height of the first-floor room, with identical forms projecting upwards on the floor above - see photograph - and downwards from the ground-floor ceiling. It can be seen until 12 July. Details 0171 234 0587. The exhibition includes new works on paper as well as the large two-part stainless steel sculpture which was pictured on the cover of aj 31.10.96.
