Shapes, Hackney Wick, 2014

A curatorial project investigating the relationship between artist & curator. A labyrinth of hanging walls made from bubble wrap, paper and aluminium sheeting provided the flexibility to create and change space within the venue. Each artist was involved in discussing how and where their work would be situated, and how it would be presented. Installations ranged from video, light sculpture, paintings and sound. Instead of asking participants to illustrate a curatorial idea, the artists were involved in the conversation on how their work should be shown both in isolation and within the broader context of the entire experience.

Participating artists:

Polly Robinson, Bo Choy, Sam Davis, Ahushan Lathief, Simone Barnes, Joanna Penso, Anna Jacob

Curated by Joanna Penso
