|Interiority will be a group presentation of seven artists that is designed to operate as seven solo presentations, defined physically by the design of the booth. It will represent the fourth in a quadrilogy of exhibitions that also serves to psycho-geographically link the two remote locations of art fair and gallery space. A version of Interiority will take place simultaneously at the gallery in London, following on from Street Semiotics and The Turning World, thus representing a collection of investigations into the city, landscape and interiors. |
The notion of interiority arose from identifying an aspect within each of the artist’s wider practices, and the exhibition seeks to reveal the psychological aspect of the interior view, as if the representation of a physical interior can be used to decode the interior mind of the artist and audience. An interior place must define itself by the presence and absence of objects, and the condition of them, and in its relation to the exterior. Conscious and unconscious drives are revealed by what is left in, and what is left out, all of which might reveal elements of identity, beliefs and desires. Notions of nostalgia, longing, hope and the private and personal will dominate, whilst also asking what is beyond the threshold, both physically and psychologically.
