DESCRIPTION

 

Colin Chinnery’s project, “I Want What You Want” (2009) engages the formal language of exhibition construction. Each artwork within the show has its independent language and meaning, but the device of artwork repetition and placement will deliberately undermine that identity. By having several versions or copies of each artwork, and by placing them in formation to create a formal pattern, the exhibition emerges as a unified whole at the expense of each work. The exhibition becomes a large artwork that only has the lifespan of one showing. By exploring the formal languages of the individual artwork and the exhibition, this show can be understood either as an investigation of the nature of individual versus group identities, or as an exploration into whether new meaning can be created whilst attempting to escape it.
