A Weight of Windows is an installation of fleeting urban forms; signs, banners, curtains, windows, and bollards. This exhibition examines temporary and makeshift ways of claiming space. It attempts to fossilise these forms and examine the artist's own urge to build, arrange and demarcate spaces.
Farrell's practice examines her role in creating these orchestrated spaces and explores the scale at which we can control our environments. She explores the acts of building, claiming and dividing spaces through filming her studio practices and she investigates the private made public and spatial through this work. She uses a combination of found materials, wood, metal, wire, plaster casts, drawing, and photography to create temporary, navigable installations. These respond to their location and layer existing, imagined, and planned spaces.
