“Exquisite show, particularly the spacing…it will be interesting to see the changes as it tours.”
From notes left in the APT Guestbook.
APT Gallery was the first venue in a four venue tour of This ‘Me’ of Mine. the extent of the gallery space meant that I could make the decision to give room to the works, I could space them out. I soon realised this space was a visual representation of ‘context’ in the show’s premise – ‘self in relation to context’.
Visitors to the show found the individuality and identity of the works through the function of this space as a buffer and a pause to consider and reflect on one work at a time. This was an unexpected reaction, but a welcome one as it now sets the work and premise in real space, reinforcing the project themes. It also sets the standard for presentation.
The following photographs are from the opening night, ‘Artists in Conversation’ and the installation of the exhibition.
