Dwell is an exhibition made up of the work of recent graduates of multiple disciplines. It centres around the mental states of the exhibitors, having recently left the reliable lives they led at their respective universities. The work advertises varying levels of insecurity and doubt, as their makers try to start a conversation about their own mindsets, on their own journeys, towards their own ideas of success and comfort.
Dwell, too, is an exhibition about being amongst many people but maintaining a feeling of inward isolation. We are aware of the prospects of just how separate our paths may be, while also living so closely and sharing many of our days together. The sentiments of the work are echoed in the space itself. The Car Park in Fulham is to be demolished soon after the exhibition, and it has been a temporary space for many of the exhibitors but one which has also been immediate in all aspects of our lives and at a time of great personal importance.
It is a wide open, interesting space, that will be inhabited with work that interacts and converses with it, but also allows for more traditional presentation of work as well. It bares the remains of past projects and art, as well as the smaller, slower burns of everyday life. Dwell is an attempt to give the time and place a proper farewell. In some attempt to alleviate ourselves of the consideration and lingering and delaying, the work that’s been created shall be shared.
I cant wait to see my friends again.
