At first we were a constellation of bodies gazing at ideas. Two projects Yes, we are next to Lidl and RECAST, essentially exhibitions put together in the studio, became experiments in the collective grouping together to gain better vision.
Yes, we are next to Lidl, was planned as a goodbye exhibition to the studio as we were set to leave the premises. It quickly became an experience that changed our minds. We stayed put and had a set of work that made sense together in a given space. We also wanted to say how close we were to Lidl. Thus, it became about proximity - our proximity to each other in the studio and how our work should be closer still.
RECAST was a second experiment, using the other side of the studio. The exhibition took place during Embassy Gallery's Annuale festival. It presented more complete works recast in to a decided curatorial formula, which revealed itself as we cleared the studio, leaving space for artworks placed on a neatly mopped yet decidedly studio-like floor.
