'Sense of Space' - Vanya Lambrecht-Ward
25th Nov 2010 - 30th Nov 2010
Opening Thursday 7-9pm
Runs daily from 12-6
‘Every vision takes place somewhere in the tactile space. There is double and crossed situating of the visible in the tangible and of the tangible in the visible; the two maps are complete, and yet they do not merge into one. The two parts are total parts and yet are not superposable.’
Vanya Lambrecht-Ward’s work grapples with the idea of dwelling and our relationship with space. Between the ocular and the tactile experience, between the flat and the spatial, the work attempts to return this space from the visual to the physical. Photography – a way of collecting and even hoarding space (in combination with pencil and paint), deconstructs and destructs these environments to create re-assembled spaces.
The photograph as a non-truth – rather than the perceived verisimilitude of the photographic image, is a constant dominating factor in Vanya’s work. The physical experience of the built space rather than its measured reality, and the work as an object itself, contribute to a re-examining of the mediums of photography and painting.
