> DESCRIPTION

From A Position explores the relationship between figures and the grounds which contextualize them. The exhibition questions the ways in which artworks might be understood as figures referring back to the social and historical fabric they represent and also how artworks can come to serve as grounds in and of themselves creating microenvironments for the gallery visitor. In this way the artworks in From A Position play the dual roles of both character and set and the script they provide for the viewer heightens an awareness of the exhibition as a form of complex landscape
