Coming Out of the Woodwork - The Nunnery

Coming Out of the Woodwork

Exhibition preview

AN EXHIBITION entitled Coming Out of the Woodwork will be on display at The Nunnery from Thursday, September 2 to Sunday, September 19, 2010.

Coming Out of the Woodwork will bring together three artists who similarly identify with the exploration of architectural space in its formation and perception as a key component to their practice.

The Nunnery, as a gallery space and its associated architecture, will be entirely reformed through a series of new installations and constructions by Richard Cramp, Mark Selby and Joe Watling.

By entering the exhibition, the viewer moves between the minimal intrusions of altered perspective offered by Joe Watling which seemingly emanate, deconstruct and cut through the regulated cube of the gallery, pass through Mark Selby’s dark, uncomfortable spaces containing objects suggesting both handmade technology and domesticity, as well as ascending tight stairways onto gantries that offer views of Richard Cramp’s faux-utopian sculptural installation.

There will be false walls, open rooms, enclosed spaces and layers of ‘new’ construction to the existing architecture, offering an experience that is both playful and disconcerting.

The construction process and installation of the works can be viewed on the exhibition website at
