Exhibition in Southsea: ‘Finding Art’ (working title) – an Overview
Southsea Green(House) is a great little community garden situated just off Canoe Lake in Southsea, Portsmouth. I managed to get the idea for exhibiting here through a contact in Portsmouth and emailed Carla who organises the site. After several emails Alice and I visited the garden and fell in love with the location.
A brief explanation of our art we are planning on displaying in the exhibition: Alice creates huge abstracts based on disused and discarded items she finds around Portsmouth, and I create illustrations based on words, thoughts and memories – quite a juxtaposition! – this contrast can only then be suited to an unusual venue, an experience visitors can feel relaxed to wonder around, without the pressure of a ‘White Cube’ type environment. This little oasis garden is a perfect mesh of seclusion and centrality.
The exhibition will hopefully be held between the 15th and 22nd of July, and I will be posting progress, ideas, curatorial concepts and research here to document the show.
