Vitrine: eleven colourful outside jobs is about reconsidering the relationship between image, audience and space, engaging with a situational aesthetics in order to question ideological representations and languages of everyday life. This group exhibition brings together artists working across the moving image spectrum who each in their own way offer possibilities of inquiry, engagement and participation in the formulation and ascription of meaning. The works function in direct relation to the actual urban environment: their specific context of exhibition, street shop-windows, underlines the variety of processes at play during the production of meaning while at the same time allowing for new subjectivities to emerge. Space becomes an object of intervention and at the same time the instrument of that same intervention. Vitrine: eleven colourful outside jobs is a possibility of critical reflection, a fluid framework of instability emerging from the unexpected yet meaningful visual combinations that might open individuals to a potential significant role in giving meaning to contexts and objects.
Vitrine is proudly sponsored by White Night Brighton and artrepublic, the collectable art prints gallery in Bond Street, Brighton.
