‘ROOM’ CURATED BY PETER SALTER - The exhibition at the Twenty Twenty Gallery in Ludlow is unusual in that it shows works by architects and photographers in conjunction with artists, ceramicists and textile makers. The focus of the work was the relationship between materiality, softness of light and the domestic environment, all of which are reflected in this exhibition. Currently, along with Fenella Collingridge, we have installed a furniture piece at the Venice Biennale based on the given theme of Freespace. This project explores the “absurd machine” as introduced by Marcel Duchamp – our absurd machine being a moving seat for an infatuated couple, mechanically reacting to the couple’s body language.
