GALLERY/ SPACE

K6 Gallery consists of two K6 model disused telephone boxes on Castle Lane, Southampton. Creating a gallery space from an object that was built for a singular purpose has made K6 an intriguing and individual venue for art.

John Hansard Gallery

Abducted by aliens, yet feet firmly on earth – this can only mean one thing: dreaming. Haroon Mirza’s Waves and Forms at the John Hansard Gallery transcends our very consciousness into another dimension. This is the very purpose of the show, Mirza states, the installations allow us to let our minds drift from reality, and […]
