We finally have a title for the show:
A placing side by side
Artefacts brought together in a group exhibition
A collection of objects in an antechamber to a collection of artworks in a show
A collection of disparate objects in an antechamber connect to disparate artworks in the show, where non-prescriptive links can be drawn
A group of artefacts when considered as a whole creates a more accurate representation of an artist’s practice. An antechamber contextualises a group exhibition; multiple collections combine to create new groupings, allowing for potentially new non-linear interpretations of artworks
yes it’s very very long. The idea stemed from not being able to come up with title and having to find systems to do so. With this title the visitor can make a choice as to when to stop reading. We’re planning to have the title spread outside the studios, where we will have our show, so that it winds around the corridor space.
With my own work I am struggling with the display. Currently I am looking to get the text put on the wall using vinyl lettering. The thing that I need to work out is if I see it as a piece of curatorial style text, or a text piece. Depending on this it will have a very different mode of display.
Currently I am thinking along the lines of curatorial style text as it takes what is already avliable in the gallery. This means that I need to think more about the colour of my text as well as the size and font.
