A Whitenoise Projects exhibition, curated by Rosie Jenkins.
SE9 Container Galley
23rd September – 28th October 2017
Sacred Spaces invites three artists to explore the concept of a space that is important, a space for meditation, contemplation and one that enables free-thinking.
Taking this concept the artists involved all use the influences and aspects of a sacred space and it is realised through their medium, the works are all responses to each artists idea of a scared space.
Looking at how they work as individuals and primarily as artists means that the presence of their everyday processes is evident in the works, ranging from how they contemplate, make decisions, use their tools and reflect upon their practice.
Creative activity comes from the serenity of mind that allows for fluid thinking and the time to act with the chosen medium that enables the creation of their work.
Being able to access a place that enables creativity, means being in a space that feels like a refuge that shuts out distractions and the omnipresent outside world. This is why writers have desks, artists have studios and sculptors have workshops, these are all important spaces where the individual can indulge in idleness and solitude for their expression.
This exhibition presents the works of Hanna ten Doornkaat, Annamarie Dzendrowskyj and Rachel Pearcey who have all explored the themes of immersion in a space to produce works, at SE9 Container Gallery they come together and invite audiences into small spaces that in juxtaposition contain the product and atmosphere of a sacred space.
WhiteNoise Projects is a group of emerging and mid career artists seeking to showcase carefully selected works through a programme of group and solo exhibitions. Focusing on pertinent themes in current artistic practice, WhiteNoise Projects responds to exhibition spaces that challenge the ideas of the traditional white cube.
