KRAMER: I’m completely changing the configuration of the apartment. You’re not gonna believe it when you see it. A whole new lifestyle.
JERRY: What are you doing?
KRAMER: Yeah, I’m getting rid of all my furniture. All of it. And I’m going to build these different levels, with steps, and it’ll all be carpeted with a lot of pillows. You know, like ancient Egypt.

For this exhibition artist Leo Fitzmaurice has been invited to produce an intervention within The Sunday Painter gallery space. Utilising Cosmo Kramer’s hypothetical project as initial seed for the shows structure, Fitzmaurice’s work will act as thematic viewfinder with which to approach the works of the other artists. Floor becomes wall, window becomes surface, objects become image and clothes become maps. Slippage between physicalities is the key. Archetypes become comic motifs and back again.
This is a walk-in freezer, a misfits apartment, a padded cell, an artists studio and a hermit’s cave.
