Identify your limitations, acknowledge the periphery
13 July 2016 - 10 September 2016
Boundaries, encasement, and entrapment – how does the vitrine mediate the subject or the object? Available for viewing, yet significantly distanced from its spectator the vitrine is often questioned within museums and institutions. By acknowledging the vitrine’s confinements how might one adopt these elements to both activate an artwork and abolish boundaries?
VITRINE, London is delighted to present an ambitious group exhibition with site-specific works by 18 British and International artists that will look at the notions of limitations, instruction-based practice, and the role of the vitrine within exhibition making. This exhibition will naturally manifest forms of the wunderkammer.
Artists include; Jennifer Douglas, Justin Eagle, Sean Edwards, Ditte Gantriis, Maria de la O Garrido, Lauren Godfrey, Ludovica Gioscia, Felicity Hammond, Holly Hendry, Karin Hueber, Alix Marie, McGilvary/White, Paul Merrick, Lucia Quevedo, Charlie Godet Thomas, Aethan Wills and Madalina Zaharia
