CODEPENDENT

13th – 17th August 2014

PRIVATE VIEW: 12TH August 7- 9pm

ROBBIE EUNSON | DEBORAH

Codependent is an exhibition of new work by two artists who, whilst approaching it in very different ways, are concerned with exploring ideas that confront ways of looking. Their work specifically makes use of space to encourage the viewer to take a more engaged role in informing their understanding of the work and look beyond the expectations of medium.

ROBBIE EUNSON

Robbie’s work blurs the line between installation and painting, asking the viewer to consider not just the content of the painting, but their placement within the space along with the objects around them. By thinking about all the elements as a whole, the viewer can piece together the narrative and meaning. References to slapstick and cartoon humour play up and undermine the viewer’s assumptions about the clichés of contemporary art.

DEBORAH

Deborah is primarily interested in the viewer as a participant. Her process involves creating situations that highlight the ever-changing relationship between viewer and artwork. This current series of work additionally explores ideas relating to modern technology and how it affects this relationship and alters perception. The work attempts not to transport audiences elsewhere or immerse, but to reconnect audiences with the physicality of here and now.

The Inheritance Project

29th May – 12th June 2014

Private View: Friday 30th May 2014 7pm-9pm

The Inheritance Project is a documentary portraiture series, created by photographer Hayley Benoit and stylist Hannah Newman, winners of the Ideastap Innovators Fund 2013. After a successful run in Shoreditch, the exhibition is moving to HOUSE gallery for a two-week slot.

The project focuses on the relationship between parent and child, the features and characteristics we inherit and the changing of fashions over time.

“The idea as a whole was triggered from watching how the style of friends and family has evolved over the years,” says Hayley, “and how they appeared to be transforming very much into their parents.”

The subjects are dressed as their parent, when their parent was of a similar age, channeling fashion trends from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Hannah and Hayley have a connection through fashion and are known for their fashion editorials, inspired by analogue snapshots and vintage fashion. Their work has previously featured in i-D online, The Girl Mag, Art Wednesday, Disorder magazine and STOP magazine.
