Mark Rautenbach’s ‘Underpinnings’ looks at unseen forces and tensions which are inside, beneath, behind and between visible things. Materially this is expressed by securing, stretching and suspending fine, colourful hand-knitted circular fabrics attached by small gold safety pins. These materials have no intrinsic value and as separate actions they go largely unnoticed. However, when combined in such a manner, they give form to something striking, complex, vital, and compelling.
