Curator’s Exhibition – ‘Room’ Curated by Peter Salter – 8th September – 6th October Ludlow
The exhibition at the Twenty Twenty Gallery in Ludlow is unusual in that it shows works by architects and photographers in conjunction with artists, ceramicists and textile makers. Hugh and Mary, the gallery owners, asked me to curate the exhibition, based on the houses I designed in London* in collaboration with Fenella Collingridge, which won an RIBA national award, a London regional award. The focus of the work was the relationship between materiality, softness of light and the domestic environment, all of which are reflected in this exhibition. Currently, along with Fenella Collingridge, we have installed a furniture piece at the Venice Biennale based on the given theme of Freespace. This project explores the “absurd machine” as introduced by Marcel Duchamp – our absurd machine being a moving seat for an infatuated couple, mechanically reacting to the couple’s body language.
I am very indebted to Mary and Hugh for this opportunity to show work by a variety of artists, most of whom work outside the local area and have not exhibited in Ludlow before.
