DESCRIPTION

Site Exercises is an exhibition of work by some of the gallery’s artists that takes the gallery space itself as a point of departure. Though the exhibition’s premise might provoke a charge of brazen navel gazing, the works as installed point to or play with the overlooked or even historical aspects of a location made familiar as a conventional white cube.

In referring to the architectural or spatial characteristics of Susan Hobbs Gallery, the selected works in turn allow formal relationships to unfold between them. In addition to works by Ian Carr-Harris, Robin Collyer, and Axel Lieber, Site Exercises includes new, site-specific works by Didier Courbot and Patrick Howlett, as well as a re-presentation of a work by Brian Groombridge that literally connects the two floors of the gallery.
