SOFT SPACES focuses on the concept of safe spaces using the quintessential ‘adolescent’ bedroom as a backdrop to question not only their validity but ability to truly exist outside the self -a safe space of one.
By means of various mediums such as painting, sculpture, and video installation the gallery space transforms into an intimate place to pose conversation. What does a safe space mean to individuals? What does it take to create a safe space online or IRL?
The workshop accompanying the exhibition, invites everyone to take part in the creation of a piece responding to the exhibition. Experimenting with materials and colours on blank canvas, the final piece will be on until June 24.
