PLACEing Objects brings together 16 artists who share a willingness to dance on the edges of artistic practice. By paying attention through the senses, listening and creating new combinations, they each aim to establish a personal encounter with places.
Objects and materials, texts and performative acts, are allowed to enter the space between the human body and site, combining like ingredients, to create a new choreography of exchange, response and meaning. The locations themselves, with all their elements, forms, traces, narratives and histories are welcomed in, to contribute to equally, demonstrating a shared openness towards outcome.
PLACEing Objects is curated by Julie Brixey-Williams
