Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery

“A gem in Sevenoaks. Peaceful & Thoughtful. Thank You.”

A note left in the comments box at Kaleidoscope.

Sevenoaks Installation_3Sevenoaks Kaleidoscope Gallery was the third venue on our tour. The gallery space was intimate, yet expansive in some ways. This presented an opportunity to create ‘stories’ by grouping works together, for example, the relationship of Cathy Lomax’s Glass Menagerie projecting towards Annabel Dover’s Iris’ Stocking  with its reflection of Mel Titmuss’ Woman with Cardigan and in relation to David Minton’s Peripheral Vision and Hayley Harrison’s Her tells a compelling story of memory, loss, longing and nostalgia. I was particularly struck by placing Cathy’s work in relationship with Annabel’s, it was a private little ‘wow’ for me.

We had some further discussions during ‘Artists in Conversation’ about other of these curatorial decisions. The topic was ‘Space’ and it was a very interesting discussion for both the artists, Melanie Titmuss, David Minton and myself, with regard to our use of space in our work and the consequence of space in my curatorial decisions throughout the project. Click on the link below to see another wonderful video interpretation by Henrietta Thomas. And continue scrolling to see more of Arnold Borgerth’s beautiful installation photographs. The composite below is of images taken by me during the opening of This ‘Me’ of Mine in Sevenoaks.
