Hart, Emma (2011) TO DO. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
In the exhibition TO DO (2011), I made 27 sculptures out of cameras, that each noisily demanded attention, the viewer had to physically travel and build the exhibition in their minds as they moved around. Making sculptures with cameras placed the viewer behind the camera and put the images produced back into the time and space of the viewer’s experience. Where the artist stood at the time of making was the same as where the viewer stood at the time of viewing.
Working with sculpture offered me a way to interfere with the viewing experience. I can interrupt and fracture the image by sticking things to it; it is encountered in a new, awkward, incomplete way. Sculpture is a tool with which I can intercept and interrupt the conventions of the image, making it cut up, fractured and physical. TO DO (2011) overwhelmed the viewer with much to look at and negotiate. It created a network of looking as lines of vision crossed from behind and in front of the cameras. This is closer to how it is when we leave the gallery and drift back into the outside world, we are encompassed with phenomena that we must pick our way through. TO DO (2011) generates a live mode of address.
A publication accompanying the exhibition was co-published by Matt's Gallery and The Centre for Useless Splendour at University Kingston London with a text by Sally O’Reilly.
