[ALLOY] artists Jessie Sheffield, Lauren Ilsley and Susan Eyre bring together new work that investigates the themes of sequence and consequence for their Deptford X Fringe Festival show at No Format Gallery. Apparently linear processes, psychological and physical, are rendered unpredictable and essentially chaotic due to their inherent and entangled sensitivity.'Supposedly predictable phenomena' relates to the concept that if all contributing factors could be mapped and understood, then the outcome, theoretically, should be predictable. The results of this is a calculable universe and suggests a trajectory that is not only logical but also predetermined. This raises the question of the alternative - Chaos Theory, and in turn free will.

[ALLOY] is a shifting collective of artists with overlapping concerns, collaborating through group shows, projects and critical engagement in members independent practices.


Jessie Sheffield works with the disconnect between perception, objectivity andthe notion of reality. She studied Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art and The Byam Shaw School of Art (CSM) before gaining an MA from the Royal College of Art. She was born in South London and continues to live and work there.

Lauren Ilsley explores the interface between the material and the immaterial, analysing the human will to control the natural environment. She studied for her BA at Nottingham Trent University and her MA at the Royal College of Art.
She was born in Oxford, has travelled extensively and now lives and works in South London.

Susan Eyre is interested in the unseen activity of matter in the universe and also intangible things which cannot be explained in terms of materiality. She studied BA Textiles at Goldsmiths College and MA Printmaking at the Royal College of Art. She lives and works in South London.
