Here collage is seen not simply as a technique but an overarching procedure that artists use to rethink structure as a king of topological relief that invites the viewer to scrutinize layers as if they are plans for an alternative landscape.

From today until the 16th May, Winchester School of Art houses this brilliant exhibition. Perfectly curated by Ian Dawson, it shows a collective of collagists and their work examining their process and the wide variety of what collage can be.
