Show-Off aims to mobilise sculptures, paintings, drawings and performances in front of a seated audience, physically bringing a procession of works to directly ‘meet’ the onlookers rather than the viewer activating the work through their own movements in space.
Conjuring ideas of a catwalk, cattle market, debutant ball and auction house, art handlers will carry or direct each work on stage one by one to ‘show them off’. Each work will be professionally lit and illuminated for a limited time before being carried off stage.
The stage has been conceived and made by Gary Woodley as a design for flexible living. The stage can be reconfigured in a multitude of ways. Individual plywood units can each be moved, stacked and rotated to house each artwork in a variety of ways.
Show-Off is born from a frustration with private views. Artworks provide a context for socialising which in turn obstructs the intention of artwork as viewed object.
A specially commissioned limited edition print by artist Rory McCartney will be available to purchase at the EXHIBITION PRICE of £50. A bespoke frame has been collaboratively designed by Rory McCartney and Gary Woodley. Framed prints will be available at the EXHIBITION PRICE of £250.
LeandaKateLouise present an on-going series of projects, designed to generate innovative ideas and exhibitions that challenge both LKL and the artists they work with. This exhibition is curated by Rose Davey and Sarah Kate Wilson as LKL.
