Installation 'A Sense of Place'

NordArt

The concept

Over the years I have been painting many of the objects found in an ordinary home. Paintings of sofas, wardrobes, dressing tables and even toilet rolls. The purpose, and there is one, is to arrange all the paintings together in an exhibition to create an ‘interior’ rather than paint a view of an interior in the classical sense. It is hoped that the visitor to this installation will walk through the rooms and feel at home. It will be a real space furnished with paintings of furnishings. A real interior but not quite.

The installation comprises of an entrance corridor, a living room, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. There are also paintings of the windows seen from outside giving the visitor a hint of what in within the ‘house’. The total internal area is approx, 75 sq. m. but this can vary according to the venue. 

‘A Sense of Place’ is being shown as a special project at the 25th anniversary edition of NordArt (NordArt.de) one of the largest art events in northern Europe. NordArt allocates a prize of €10,000 to one participating artist and there are 4 people's prizes of €1,000.
