Talk with artist Phil Goss and Jamie Jenkinson 'The Hotel Room' exhibition at Evelyn Yard Contemporary Gallery

About

Working across the disciplines of drawing and video, Phil and Jamie come together in the voyeuristic non-place installation of The Hotel Room. A hotel room will be built in the gallery, creating a new cinematic world for the visitors to enter, and produce their own narrative through the film-set connotations of the structure. Combining Phil's illustrations upon the interior walls and Jamie's mechanical abstractions hidden within, the space is tied down by uncanny familiarities between the two. Filling the space with visible craft from the artists, the context also plays on ideas of reproduction, consumption and pretense surrounding art and its worth in a commercial economy, alongside the cinematic notions of settings and the desire for narrative.
