Life in Space

Presented in West Space's back-space, this project is populated with handmade instruments, tools and other objects of use. Basic furniture; a chair, a table, a light, a kind of bastard wunderkammer, a microcosm and museum of recent works.

Musical instruments, porcelain serving platters, occasional finger foods, costumes, tools and coddled plant life comingle in a workshop setting. Pursuing an obsession for objects with mystery and purpose – or least suggested purpose and potential mystery – creates a series of curious gatherings with ritualistic possibilities. The exhibition will allow both the artist and the audience to entertain the promise of a suggested, unspoken narrative. The changing relationships and instances of documentation build up a kind of field guide to living with things.

The works in the space become the subject of further work, documented for this online publication to be updated during the show. This will feature drawings, video, animation, performance and conversation. This is an attempt to chronicle the various instances and possibilities of these things, while rejoicing in the ever-changing day to day details.
