‘I put a picture on a wall. Then I forget there is a wall. I no longer know what there is behind this wall, I no longer know this wall is a wall, I know longer know what a wall is.’
Species of Spaces and Other Pieces, Georges Perec.
What is a wall? Walls effaces walls with pictures, attempting to give light to the role of the humble wall.
This exhibition features the first-showing of Morris’ monoprint series ‘Paper on Paper’, alongside site-specific wall-drawings and experimental work. The aim is to explore how walls shape experience, and can subtly orientate our view, placement, sense of self and connection to things.
The former 36 Lime Street Gallery was established in 2009 as an artist run space to provide a platform for emerging and established artists to experiment and take risks with new work. Selected by committee from an open call, 8 proposals are selected and exhibited throughout the year.
The gallery space will continue to provide a platform as 36.
