6th June 2010 — 4th July 2010
The exhibition is not accessible to the public – instead it can be viewed solely by passers-by peering through the tinted windows of the building. Working collaboratively and individually, Atkins, Parkinson and Whitby have used the concrete skeleton of the building as a scaffold on which to enact, fill, drape, project, prop, drag and drop a series of propositions.
The three artists have created a sculptural landscape which references anthropology, architecture, art history and theatre and operates around an acute understanding of the axes that are presented by the exhibition – the tension between inside and out, the conversation between attraction and repulsion, seeing and not seeing.The exhibition will change and reinvent itself through the month and as such sees the site as an arena for a series of possible realities and interpretations, all necessarily contingent and partial.
Kam Lee and the Second Look is curated by Rose Lejeune.
