Uncanny World of Interiors

Uncanny World of Interiors
curated by Charlotte Squire

I am showing several pieces at Uncanny World of Interiors Exhibition, part of Plymouth Art Weekender.

Uncanny World of Interiors
6 Caroline Place, Stonehouse, Plymouth PL1 3PR
11am – 6pm Fri – Sun

Our interior space for living is where we are most revealed, as here we make our most personal mark. The temporary domestic space at Caroline Place showcases the work of 8 artists and designers working with everyday materials, transforming the mundane into objects of desire.
The unheimlich of Freud’s analysis wherein things pertaining to homeliness and domesticity are somewhat wrong footed by one thing or another, subjective to be sure, make us question what exactly ‘home’ is. A place? A feeling? A tribe we belong to? This is a subject that has substantial contemporary currency as migration and dislocation move cultures from places of conflict or through economic displacement. Small items may be carried from one place to another – or left behind, to be found later and integrated into the scheme of things. Such items and dislocation surface in the disrupted home environment of the Uncanny World of Interiors.

Artists showing: Madeleine Boulesteix, Oliver Burns-Garside, Bianca ChudleyLeCorre, Sarah Doyle, David Edmond, Sarah Sparkes, Charlotte Squire and Olivia Aggett (currently undertaking a residency at Caroline Place drawing directly onto the walls and wallpaper).
