Fiona Grady: Cross Sections

  • Camden Peoples Theatre 58-60 Hampstead Road London, England, NW1 2PY United Kingdom (map)

‘Cross Sections’ is a site-responsive exhibition that explores the relationship between interior and exterior spaces in a public setting. Using the double surface of Glass Cloud Gallery’s window based space Grady will work directly onto the windows and walls to create a three dimensional drawing. The artwork will be composed of hand cut vinyl on the windows, and pasted screenprints on the walls, mimicking advertising and sign posters. The layers of the geometric shapes will allow a visual illusion to occur as an artwork that seemingly ‘moves’ when the viewer to walks past it. The urban scenery reflected on the windows will draw parallels between the motifs of the artwork and the architectural details of the surrounding buildings. Occupying an advertising space, the installation will question the use of graphic language in public spaces, asking where the line is drawn between advertising, street art and design? The exhibition recognizes the relationship between architecture, installation art and decoration to celebrate the use of public venues as an experimental site for the creation of new artwork.
