Exhibition Opening!

A very successful opening with the Sheriff of Nottingham...

Sunday, 8 March 2009


Above is my display at the exhibition.  I am happy with it, i was trying to decide if it would be better just stuck on the wall, it was annoying me that they weren't straight and that the portraits kept on slipping so that it wasn't level.  It may have been smarter if it was on the wall but i think that it fitted well within the market displayed as it is.  I liked that people could walk around it and i was a lot happier with it once we opened up the other shutter and rearranged the space a bit as i feel it all worked better together. 


When my final images were chosen as far as i was concerned i had broadly 2 options for the display...
1. To frame or mount the images and put them on the wall, either in a long line or 2 rows of 3.
2.  The market had the right ceilings for us to suspend the work ad have it floating.

I decided on the second option because i think it added another dimension to the piece.  I made structures so the each set of three was clamped in a triangle shape and then suspended at head height.  This means that the viewer can walk around the images, interact with it and experience the different sides a person can have.

Photos to follow shortly....
