Using the concept of a view through an open window, this exhibition invites the audience to explore and peer into the unique undisclosed landscape of a studio space. Giving an exceptional insight into the environment of creative process and practice, and the exhibiting artists visual manifestation of this concept.
Every space set up to enable creative practice can be defined as a studio. Whether it be a desk in a small nook, a neglected disused warehouse or a huge make shift white wall. These spaces are used for creative processes and amazing outcomes. Each studio is individual in character and style. Each wall filled with fundamental inspiration, ephemera and reference imagery. Busy shelves filled with boxes of materials, leftovers from previous briefs and those saved objects that will one day have a purpose.
The starting point of this exhibition is a recycled window frame given to 16 outstanding local artists, designers, stylist, photographers, set designers and illustrators.
These windows come in all different shapes and sizes, emphasizing the concept of individual space and vision. With the initial starting point of the window frame, each of the artists have been asked to produce the personal character and style of their studio space. Giving outsiders a chance to witness studio life where anything and everything can serve as inspiration. These representations will be as surreal, abstract, conceptual or documentary as desired by the artist.
Each of the individual window frames will come together and take their spot to transform the walls of Dalston Superstore into an exclusive insight through the windows of the creative space and mind.
The unique diversity of the work stems from the wide creative spectrum that these individual artists have been asked from. Superstore is lucky enough to have the completely amazing Anna Bruder, Alex Noble, Moses Powers and Jonas Ranson being involved in this exhibition. Already household names within the Superstore exhibition space. Amongst these names will be other renowned local artist's and designers such as set designer Alun Davies and stylist Kim Howells. Not only will Creative Pane be housing the work of these familiar names, but there will also be fresh faces including work from illustrators Naomi Bird and James Andrews, sculptural pieces from Georgia Gendall, fashion inspired artist Jack Duffy and graphic designer Claude d'Avione.
This exhibition will showcase the individuality of each of these standalone artists and their unique spaces. Giving others a chance to peek in to these hidden backdrop.
