Solo show 01

Exhibition

I held a pop-up ‘solo show' on Jan 1 2020 on an unused community noticeboard in Hackney.

The Solo show was a pop-up 24hr exhibition on un-used London Borough of Hackney noticeboards.

The work explored ambiguity of meaning; A recurring theme in much of my self-initiated work over the years. Instead of the designer fixing how the work is perceived by an audience, the different elements in the work encourage each viewer to make connections, finding their own meaning within the work.

The negative fantasy of organising something, and of no one turning up or taking notice is something that can prevent one from producing anything. I decided to embrace this fear by announcing the exhibition once the work had gone up, and only leaving it up for 24 hours. I will do more exhibitions in the future utilising other sites of these community noticeboards. Whether or not i’ll give any advance warning as to when and where they will emerge, remains to be seen!
