'Soft Evidence' is Matthew McQuillan's first solo project in London. The show comprises of a number of new works, including a large textile installation, pencil drawings on t-shirts, and an audio piece. Stuck in the push and pull between anonymity, privacy and the glare of the public realm, McQuillan explores the condition of being a subject. 'Soft Evidence' hints at the artist's own relationship to this slippy terrain — large, printed blankets reference domestic and personal space, and a drawing depicts a sleeping individual, captured in a moment of assumed privacy. The audio piece is a fictional account of a character awaking to a situation the morning after the night before. As last night's accomplice sleeps in, she attempts to form an escape plan but is conflicted between her need to remain invisible and a desire to govern the production and dissemination of her image. 'Soft Evidence' traverses the gulf between interior and exterior spaces, those places where the obscure become manifest.
