Last chance to see Enclosure at the gallery ! Including Marion Coutts, Dan Hays, Eyal Sasson, Gabriela Schutz, Stephen Walter and Sarah Woodfine, Enclosure speaks of containment and control.
It is the physical or conceptual creation of a bounded territory or zone. Physical or pictorial acts of enclosure imply an extreme selectivity, where what is out of the frame is separated by a void space, implying a hermetically sealed microcosm free from outside influence or interference. Ideas of separation and entrapment are mirrored by fantasies of sanctuary and escape – the suspect enchantment of a snow-dome, the utopian dreams engendered by a map taken as reality, the encapsulation of a romantic ideal within the impenetrable bounds of a picture, a package, a glass box, a screen.
The artworks displayed within the house present various manifestations of this troubling dialectic through a confusion of historical and contemporary species of object, forms of vision technology, and genres of image making – between still-life and landscape, museum case and picturesque scene, marvellous proximity and alienated distance.
The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 2 to 6 pm, or by appointment.
