FERMENT 2 is the second of FERMENT's five exhibitions that together show the work of 50 artists over 5 weeks. FERMENT is a project designed to present the exhibition as a changing site by re-contextualising each artwork with new works installed in the gaps left by the departure of works that were installed earlier.  This weekly going and coming of artworks is like a slow and progressive dance, each step of which is seen by coming to its 5 openings—on Fridays 6-8pm on 4, 11, 18 and 15 January & 1 February.

By the time it finishes at 5pm on Sunday 3 February, it will have shown the work of Lisa Andrew & Rachel Buckeridge, Susan Andrews, Karen Banks, Liz Bradshaw, Mandy Burgess, Sue Callanan, Angus Callander, Curtis Ceapa , Stella Chen, Lucinda Clutterbuck and Lewis, Paul Cooper, Julian Day, der_melicious, Dominique Madeleine Devadason,  Jacquelene Drinkall, Michele Elliot, Merilyn Fairskye, Nola Farman, Beata Geyer, Claire Gibbon, Allan Giddy,  Adrian Hall, Barbara Halnan, Annelies Jahn, Fiona Kemp, Harry Klein, Michelle Le Dain, Joyce Lubotzky, Wendy Miller, Louise Morgan, Nadia Odlum, Renay Pepita, Anya Pesce, Margaret Roberts, Tamsin Salehian, Andrew Simms, Eva Simmons, Anke Stäcker, Helen M Sturgess, Jessica Thallmaier, Rosie Thomas, Mark Titmarsh, Nina Walton, Elke Wohlfahrt and Sarah Woodward.
