Jade Pegler presents her fifth show with Gallery 9, Sad Sack, an exhibition of recent works made of stained fabrics, thread, yarn and fibres. Pegler's sculptures invite touch and imply a close relationship to the body, like time-worn, hand spun dolls. Strange appendages protrude and loop from their soft shapes, as if reaching for touch or in search of light. Both sinister and endearing, her mute forms are invested with a tactile energy and secretive meaning.

Exhibition opens: 6-8pm Wednesday 1 June 2016
Exhibition closes: 25 June 2016
