PRESS RELEASE: 

Constructed in two separate spaces of the Cave the work creates a conversation around consumption. 

USE UP, ENGROSS, DEVOUR, SQUANDER, DESTROY

Hosting works in two separate spaces, one being a traditional gallery setting and the other a functional cafe area the contexts of both areas reflect different types of consumption. In the gallery space features photography from Sabina Schilling and audio piece by Eliza Brady. Performance will be held in the cafe area featuring both artists. 

The issues around exhibiting art in domestic settings arise from the meeting of public and private spaces. In a time where cultural tourists consume art in the context of the gallery, domestic spaces can be overlooked. Difficulties arise when this space becomes public and brings with it all the issues of visitor numbers, how the work is interpreted and how they move through the space. The body can be seen as a transitional object, a vehicle. One often becomes desensitised by our internal selves, not being conscious of the functions our body’s play out. The work makes us think about our bodily integrity.
