ALTERNATING BETWEEN THE TWO will explore the boundaries and
methods of displaying contemporary art; whilst promoting an artistic exchange
between the two cities, London and Bristol.
In addition to the conventional âwhite cube', the exhibition will take place in
a fabric workshop, joined to the gallery space. The merging of these two diverse surroundings sets out to investigate how we perceive contemporary art in a
hybrid of contexts, questioning the effects and implications it can have on the art
displayed in such locations.
The exhibition will invite us to contemplate the blurred boundaries between
foreground and background, the juxtaposition of forms and structural elements
of stage sets.
Employing a range of mediums from film to frozen sculpture, ALTERNATING
BETWEEN THE TWO will explore the idea of subsequent and continuous
exchanges between notions of environments, context and meaning. Taking
inspiration from varied subject matters such as collage, performance,
and the precious and profane, the exhibition will encompass artwork that
transcends traditional structures of display.
ALTERNATING BETWEEN THE TWO promises to give a unique and relevant
insight into Bristol based art, showcasing a vibrant and dynamic mix of
practice that falls between both student level and internationally recognised
