"A Grammar of Love and Violence" is Eloise Fornieles' first major solo exhibition. For the entire duration of the show, Eloise, whose core practice comprises of performances set within installations, will be silent whether she is in or out of the gallery. She will sit in a dimly lit room filled with exaggerated references to the domestic, being bordered by walls of lace, carpeted by cut hair and filled with towers made of scaffolding that resemble a family group, topped with kissing-chairs. The audience will be invited into the installation to interact with Eloise individually so that each audience member creates their own experience of the work. They will be free to observe and engage in a strange dialogue, able to talk to Eloise who, remaining silent all the while, will reply with written letters. Perhaps in the gap between what is spoken and what is written we may see a fleeting image of both the dissonance and possibilities for connection that lie at the heart of all human efforts at communication.
