“As an artist I have learnt that making things with my hands leaves me with much less of a sense of dislocation from the world I live in - and this I feel, is an interesting premise from which to examine the world of science.” - Catherine Truman

Internationally renowned for her contemporary jewellery, no surface holds explores the breadth of Catherine Truman's research-based practice, bringing together an extraordinary collection of film, images, installation and sculpture.
