GROUND

From April – June 2015 the Attic gallery will be host to Ground a curatorial project by One Thoresby Street members, Alice Gale-Feeny and Oliver Tirre

Ground is a series of three exhibitions that take 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.

The project considers the process of looking and seeing and how this can be made visible. It speculates around the ways in which we learn and the potential of arriving at a level of understanding and knowledge through play and physical touch.

Ground specifically invites artists whose work acts as a bridge for performance and sculpture. Within three duo shows, performance is considered in an expanded way: as the subtle relationship between a body and an object. It may take place in the solitary environment of the studio or home just as much as in the gallery.
