This group exhibition centres on notions of chance and of 'letting go' within the creative process. In the works selected there is a certain aspect of either introducing or submitting to an element of the unknown. The title refers to this quality within each artist's practice - where the resultant work is as much discovered as determined.

Williams’ award winning photographs offer a compelling view of post-apartheid South Africa. As the Grass Grows is a collection of portraits of the first generation born after the end of apartheid – eligible and free to vote in the 2014 elections.
