The Artist's House
13 February 2014, Tanya Leighton, Berlin
Tanya Leighton is pleased to announce a discussion and slide lecture by author Kirsty Bell. The lecture is being presented in conjunction with the current gallery exhibition MORNING AND EVENING ASYLUM, a collaboration between Tanya Leighton, Berlin and Off Vendome, Düsseldorf. The exhibition is on view until 22 February in Berlin and 1 March in Düsseldorf.
Bell's most recent book, The Artist's House: From Workplace to Artwork, examines the role of artists' domestic spaces in relation to their work. Taking the house as a receptacle, vehicle, model, theater, or dream space, the artist's home becomes a prism through which to view not only the artistic practice of its inhabitant, but also to apprehend broader developments in sculpture and contemporary art in relation to domestic architecture and interior space. Bell will deliver a multimedia presentation informed by her extensive research on the subject, one which has a close correlation to many of the works on view in MORNING AND EVENING ASYLUM. The exhibition exemplifies a wide variety of artists' reflections on quotidian experience and the spaces which enable creation, be they the home, the restaurant, or other arenas in which the artist's relationship to the world is brought into focus.
The Artist's House: From Workplace to Artwork is published by Sternberg Press.
Kirsty Bell is a critic and writer; she publishes regularly in magazines including Frieze (of which she is a contributing editor), Mousse Magazine, Art in America and Art-Agenda.
