2. Atopia Project (vol. 1) / Miniature Worlds Castlefield Gallery

The Atopia Project (vol.1)
First of a series of works made with Steven Gartside. The Atopia Project (vol. 1) is part of a series of collaborations which explore contained spaces. With reference to early 20th century Antarctic exploration, museological space, and Berthold Lubetkinís Penguin Pool at London Zoo; (vol. 1) develops a narrative that reflects on our desire to go beyond the limits of knowledge, a desire that can lead to great success as well as failure.

This work was exhibited at Castlefield Gallery Nov 2016-Jan 2017, for the Miniature World exhibition of 'film, sculpture, 2D work, astronomical artefacts, miniature models, and diagrams of the finite-infinite relation. Acknowledging our relentless pursuit for knowledge, the exhibition considers the potential of things in small-scale to help us understand, document and communicate the world in which we find ourselves, ultimately arriving at the joy we find in these modest-sized artefacts in their own right'.
