Next month, Degrees of Freedom will open on Wednesday 6 April from 6-9pm at the NewBridge Project.
Degrees of Freedom reconsiders home, domesticity and labour: from the external environments we inhabit to the psychological structures that shape our experiences. The physical spaces we generate are affected by our state of mind, and our state of mind is in turn affected by the environments we encounter. These internal and external worlds can fluctuate between comfort and fear; calmness and isolation; influenced by perceptible and imperceptible forces beyond our control.
This exhibition of painting and video installation work is the first collaboration between visual artists Jill Tate and Matt Denham. Developed over 16 months, the work manifests in dramatically illuminated, stark and minimal interiors born of terracotta and concrete: materials with mixed connotations of earth and architecture, wellness and work. Through the manipulation of scale and a feedback of forms, the work explores the different psychological dimensions of our environments.
