Out of Place
A site-specific group show of photographs, collage, painting and installation about One Paved Court, 23 Jan – 3 Feb 2019.
Participating Artists: Simon Darbey, Hanna ten Doornkaat, Judith North, Kate Proudman, Robinson & McMahon, Paul Smith and Charmaine Stimson.
Number 1, Paved Court has had a varied past, having served as a surgical appliance manufacturer, a bird shop and as the backdrop to TV and film. In 2017 this early Georgian building underwent a major renovation and began its newest incarnation as a contemporary art gallery, One Paved Court. Retaining its strong character, the building never fails to provoke a reaction from both visitors and artists alike. Eight artists each made work as a direct response to the space.
In Out of Place, Kate focuses on the process of change the building has undergone, and how this is articulated through what has been concealed and revealed by the architect. She draws our attention to how this informs our understanding of the history of a building, here specifically the revealed back archway.
