Morfill, S., 2006.
|Venue:||The Metropole Gallery, Folkestone|
|Dates:||9/7/06 - tbc|
|Number of Works:||1|
The exhibition is being co-ordinated by Five Years, who have proposed the exhibition Frenzy for the Metropole Gallery in Folkestone. Their proposal explains that the exhibition aims to:
• explore the often fraught relationship between contemporary art (practice & theory) and the idea of ornamentation. In particular to explore the claims associating decorativeness with the dangerous 'other' to high Modernist ambition.
(Loos et al).
• make new work specifically in response to the Metropole gallery's imposing Edwardian Rococo architecture.
• examine through the concept of decoration, art's function, import and institution vis-à-vis the roles of academic research in art, 'independent' artist-run initiatives, publicly funded and supported art institutions and the private sector of the artist.
• examine through the concept of decoration, art's function and import in relation to ideas of design, architecture and music.
• Exhibition of new work
• Series of Performances
• Web 'residence' in collaboration with Variablemedia (to be confirmed)
• Permanent web archive disseminating information, discussion, opinion and response
