Introduction by the curator on the opening night at 6 pm (food provided).
Taking its title from a late 70's synthesizer and trombone led band heard late one evening by Godfrey whilst observing 'Indoor Life' scroll across his digital radio, this exhibition will bring together both new and existing work from 13 artists based in Nottingham, London, Frankfurt, Berlin and Los Angeles respectively.
Responding to the galleries domestic past and the remnants of that history which still exist, Indoor Life will explore ideas relating to the display of art that exists within or poses as a domiciliary and gallery environment.
At times the exhibition may resemble a film set, a building site or even the home of a private art collection all with the common purpose of investigating the varying realms between fact and fiction, form and function that an exhibition and domestic space can operate within.
Indoor Life will include works by:
Tomas Chaffe (UK)
Nicolas Deshayes (UK)
Tom Godfrey (UK)
Eloise Hawser (UK)
Candice Jacobs (UK)
Matt Jamieson (UK)
Simon Lewandowski (UK)
Richard Paul (UK)
Yelena Popova (RU)
Simon Raven (UK)
Garry Scott Davis (USA)
James E Smith (UK)
Andreas 'Sorry' Steffen (D)
