Out of Place brings together a group of artists who share ideas around intervention and action. By playing on our knowledge and expectations of a given architectural structure, the artists disrupt the way in which we navigate through, or behave, in a traditional gallery setting.
Tomas Chaffe, Sheila Ravnkilde and Niki Russell have been invited to make site-specific works in the gallery that will create a physical delineation of the space.
Other works possess a performative element, such as Simon Withers' physically challenging drawing made in response to Velásquez's Rokeby Venus, Paul Matosic's film of cardboard towers collapsing in slow motion and Roger Suckling's precarious unicycle ride along the Humber Bridge.
Movement, light and sound feature in Candice Jacobs' kinetic tabletop drawing, Eric Rosoman's flashing light map of sea navigation points around the UK and Philip Mayer's unsettling sound work that confuses and disturbs our sense of space.
