I Left Enough Room For Dancing

Solo Exhibition

Supported by Seongbuk Art Commons in conjunction with Seoul Biennale for Architecture and Urbanism.
The works within the exhibition ‘I Left Enough Room For Dancing’ explore the volatile nature of anticipating and planning for the future. Both hope and anxiety dwell beside whole-hearted plans for greatly awaited events. The artworks question the desire to seek out travel plans and notions of idyllic palm trees alongside the quest for pursuing spiritual fulfilment. Collectively the work aims to address the idea of projecting your mind to a time where you will feel contentment. Source material for the works are often derived from yoga or the fitness industry, where individuals adopt a self imposed intensity through practice and repetition to ally ideas and goals more viscerally within their minds. Other materials include bedding seen in many homes and non-slip plastic matting found in public restrooms, all of which have a strong sense of purpose and expected use. As a result an environment is created where the stability of habitual behaviour and the irrational nature of intuition are presented without hierarchy. The aim of refusing to qualifying or make a distinction between familiar routine and instinctual behaviour is to remove the sense of expectancy and to open up a new space without any pressure to perform.
