This exhibition aims to put different people’s visual ideas of themselves as built structures or places, into physical proximity.

About

Can we visualise ourselves as built dwellings or structures? What kind would you be?​

This is a different kind of self-portraiture; something different from the age-old image of the person.​

This exhibition is an exploration. It aims to put different people’s visual ideas of themselves as built structures or places, into physical proximity. The intention is to see into the different kinds of baggage, cultural and personal, which we bring together when we make a new acquaintance, for example, or meet an old friend. The works will be grouped so as to make a 'neighbourhood' where every ‘self-portrait as house’ – or other space – is as important as any other. We hope it will provoke thought and conversation. ​

Opening times:

Thursday 5th July  2pm - 6pm

Friday 6th July, Saturday 7th July  11 a.m - 6pm

Sunday 8th July 11 a.m - 5p.m.
