Jane M Howie: Metamorphic Intrusion

July 11th - 3rd August 2011

This work was made in response to a visit behind the scenes at AirSpace. I was interested by the way in which traces of the various uses and users of the original gas-lit Victorian building are visible behind and underneath the contemporary white cube gallery space.

The history of the building is written in the layers of decor and technological change, the remnants of old gas lamps and parquet flooring, redundant door plates, paint sprinkled carpets and electrical fittings chiseled into the plaster lath walls and ceilings.
