Joseph-Lester, Jaspar and Kivland, Sharon, 2013, Show, Exhibition or Event, Modern Interiors

Abstract or Description:

The exhibition included work by Jaspar Joseph-Lester and Sharon Kivland. Each of the works in the show draws from found images of modern interiors to explore the forceful, seductive and alienating ideologies that are embodied in representations of space. A painting of an early modern interior is combined with a written description of a ‘refined salon’ and magazine images of sofas are cut together to produce an excessive spectacle of contemporary furniture design, comfort and luxury. The four wall based works in Modern Interiors are concerned with the politics of spatial design and how the changing representations of the spaces we may wish to inhabit are actively consume, reproduced and at the same time despised.
