CONSTITUTION is a new commission by artist and writer Ghislaine Leung. Leung’s work addresses formal and informal value structures and how these impact on individual and shared space. Working with sound, scale and temperature Leung’s new commission at Chisenhale Gallery addresses the ways in which we seek to assimilate and internalise conditions of high production, efficacy and visibility over maintenance, care and love.
