Inside is an open call-out to practitioners working within a variety of mediums, which explore the psychological connection between the viewer and the work. Through a process of immersing the participant within the viewing space, Inside aims to focus on the notion of art as a trigger for the generation of a personal narrative. Work submitted may be ambitious, subtle or intimate and can cover a range of mediums including (but not specific to) sound, sculpture, installation, text and so on.
