This exhibition is part of VACANT SEASONS
25th May – 10th June 2017
In an unconstrained and site specific approach, The Chopping Block has invited three artists to independently inhabit the gallery - being given three days to produce a short term, immersive & site specific display.
Through our proposed model in which time becomes limited, artists are asked to respond to the physicality of the space with complete freedom and autonomy. Exploring models of practice in a time constrained format, the resulting exhibitions will look towards the experimental and unpredictable through a temporary format.
The Chopping Block is therefore using ‘Vacant Seasons’ as an open source model, in which artists will not be limited to work in any speci c format or media. The short shows will encourage a exible and adaptive nature, whilst also leaning towards more alternative approaches of display.
