1) Sit down heavily or carelessly
2) To play unskilfully
Spruce, to primp, grooming, and tarting up.
Here are just some of the phrases that are optimistic within ‘Plonk’ – an exhibition of the dank, the dingy. From Duchamp’s urinal, to the collages of rubbish from Tim Noble and Sue Webster, the concept of waste and the uninviting is firmly engrained within contemporary culture. ‘Plonk’ is an exhibition that sits comfortably within this tradition – offering artists a ‘hard-featured’ and ‘misshapen’ hovel to display their work, whether they decide to beautify, or horrify within its context. Artists of all career levels are invited to shed the ‘white cube’ and pomposity of the modern gallery, and allow their works to be the twinkle in a hobos eye. In short, the phrase ‘you can’t polish a turd’ will be throughly put to the test.
