Isolation Chamber Vacation
Isolation Chamber Vacation is an exhibition of artist’s responses to the subject of ‘aloneness’ and exploration of cultural representations of solitude, at Transition Gallery, East London. The work of five artists; Juno Calypso, Hannah Ford, Kirsty Buchanan, Nicola Frimpong and Katerina Jebb, was shown alongside contexualising objects and ephemera from my research into the theme. These objects include artists’ books, as well as letters, back-issues of magazines and a library of ‘recommended reading’.
Further examination into the topic was provided with a series of talks and film screenings, which took place at intervals throughout the duration of the exhibition and a special issue of art fanzine Arty, which I also guest edited.
Isolation Chamber Vacation was shortlisted for the Artquest Workweek Prize 2016. In 2017, the exhibition toured to the Worthing Museum with the addition of pieces from the museum's archive.
