This exhibition takes place inside a functioning studio building. A dichotomy is set up between the architectural features and on-going activity in the space, and the still, frieze-like exhibition that is temporarily on display. This parallel bears resemblance to a mosaic known as "Unswept House", developed by 'Sosus of Pergamon' in the second century BC. The mosaic depicts the detritus of a day's feast, fixed in marble and concrete; a fanciful, preserved image of culinary debris, presumably fallen from the plates of Roman guestsIt would have adorned the floor of a dining room, setting up a juxtaposition between the activity in the space and it's representation in an artwork.

Opening times:

Saturday 29th April/Sunday 30th April/Monday 1st May - 12:00 PM to 6:00 PM
