Coming - Joe Wilson & Chanelle Collier: Hangover

Articulate is pleased to announce that its funded whole-space installation project has been awarded to Joe Wilson & Chanelle Collier for Hangover.

Hangover will open on Friday 1 June 6-8pm, and then be open  11am – 5pm, Friday – Sunday 2 – 17 June.

This funded project focuses on whole-space installation to support works that focus on relationships between a work and its location, which are likely be most apparent when only one work is constructed in one architectural space.  

Hangover is a site-specific response to the layout and infrastructure of the ground floor Articulate project space where a single work of planar forms combines approaches to drawing and painting.

Using a tent for its canvas panelling as a dynamic physical form; shapes, colours, and the interstices of windows and doors, yield a variety of surfaces as an experiment in formal play with height, compression, and light, utilising the material accoutrements to the tent: the canvas, rope lines, fittings, pegs, and poles.

As a cultural form, the tent carries varied associations with urban escape and political resistance, it denotes the polarities of camping and protest, freedom and hardship, nostalgia and destitution. Here it has been breached, opened up, and reconstructed where latent energy is held in the tension of fabric as effort that is stored in a battery-like capture of the kinetic energy used in the labour of its stretching and manipulation.
