The floor is what separates and joins us to the earth. It is a loaded zone of connection and loss. In contemporary urban city spaces we traverse a variety of metaphorical and material floors, such as pavements and laneways, on a daily basis. The floor marks the beginning of space and the universal experience of being. The floor is also a border space and a marker of our temporality.
The artists that have been selected for this exhibition are linked by their ability to consider and reconcile their work with the floor. This group of artists also share a common interest in spatial discourses. The works in this exhibition invite viewers to look closely and to re-imagine the floor as a unique spatial plane.
