Artist's Talk: Saturday 18th September 2-4pm
'Coming Out of the Woodwork' will bring together three artists who similarly identify with the exploration of architectural space in its formation and perception as a key component to their practice. The Nunnery, as a gallery space and its associated architecture, will be entirely reformed through a series of new installations and constructions by Richard Cramp, Mark Selby and Joe Watling.
By entering the exhibition, the viewer encounters the minimal intrusions of altered perspective offered by Joe Watling, Mark Selby's installation of objects suggesting both handmade technology and domesticity, as well as ascending onto a gantry that will offer a view of Richard Cramp's faux-utopian sculptural installation. There will be false walls, open rooms, enclosed spaces and layers of 'new' construction to the existing architecture, offering an experience that is both playful and disconcerting.
The construction process and installation of the works can be viewed on the exhibition website.
