Out of Space at Gorman Arts Centre
Wednesday, 7 December 2016
Ainslie and Gorman’s Out of Space public art project officially launched on Wednesday 6 April at Gorman Arts Centre, and features work by Chris ‘Walrus’ Dalzell and Ms Constance Spry’s Letter Writing Service.
Developed with the aim of activating the recently renovated Batman St forecourts, Out of Space encourages visitors to actively engage with the centre and its history. Dalzell’s sculptural instillation, Contain(ed), blurs the line between the interior and the exterior and viewers to consider concepts of physical space, whilst Ms Constance Spry’s Letter Writing Service engages visitors in the art of letter-writing.
Ainslie and Gorman Creative Producer, Vanessa Wright says:
“The project was designed to explore how public art can change the form and function of space, and in turn, how an audiences engagement with art can change their perception of space and provoke discussion”.
Out of Space will enliven the forecourts at Gorman Arts Centre until the 17 April, for more information on the artists and their works, read the commissioned essay by Grace Blakely-Carrol.
