‘A Place in Between’ at Espacio Gallery showcased work from a hugely diverse national and international group of artists, in a variety of interpretations and mediums reflecting moments in the artists’ lives when they found themselves in movement – either through space or state of mind.
The interface between life experience and the artistic process can be a strange mysterious world of half glimpsed effects and ideas, but this is also the place in between life events where creative sparks are born. The exhibition combines photography, printmaking, painting, 3D and mixed media.
Visual artist Marianne MarpLondon participated with her Icons of Civilisation series which focuses on the female figure, and more specifically on the clothing that drapes it. MarpLondon asserts that female dress has always been an object of desire on its own, making the wearer play an insignificant role in comparison to it. Obviously, this is an extremely superficial representation of women, who should not have their persona reduced to a piece of cloth; faceless and nameless. Such detachment inspires women to fight for the right to their own unique identity, which brings Marianne to the question: to blend in or to stand out?
The private view was held on Thursday 25 February and the show continued until 28 February at Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road, London, E2 7DG. For pictures of our event please click here.
