The tenants of 92 White Post Lane are invited to participate in a unique collaborative project that divides the gallery space into 'allotments'. These spaces will be chalked out and numbered prior to the works being delivered to the
gallery. The gallery becomes a 'meeting place' questioning notions of curatorial responsibility and artistic pedigree.
Occupants of units who do not identify themselves as artists are also invited to participate. Allotments not 'claimed' by tenants for whatever reason will be left empty. Spaces are allocated by picking a number from a pot injecting elements of 'chance' and 'play' into the curatorial process. In this way a grid of allotments will be formed that is structured yet undefined; relationships between artworks reflect a diversity of approaches to what art is and how it should be displayed and interpreted while promoting a sense of community for the tenants.
