ATTIC was a gallery situated on the top floor of One Thoresby Street programmed by Rebecca Ounstead.
ATTIC hosted an exhibition and events programme that critically contributes to the development of One Thoresby Street studio artists, by situating itself within a national and international dialogue of contemporary art.
Rebecca Ounstead’s research and interests are invested in themes around gender politics, sociability, sexuality, commodity, capital, materiality and experience.
Ground is a series of three exhibitions that took place upon a purpose built, raw MDF floor. The floor acts as an architectural device that illustrates a construction process; a foundation for ideas; a representation of an ever-changing interior thought that develops and re-presents itself throughout each exhibition.
