Space In Between is delighted to present the second gallery solo show of London-based artist Nicole Morris.
Titled Sisters this body of new work explores ideas of growing up as a girl whilst, at the same time, growing up in an urban environment – looking at public development alongside that of human growth. The exhibition will consist of a series of large-scale fabric works that will interact with moving image, the body, text and the wider community.
Continuing an ongoing study of using printmaking techniques to create architectural screens that act as both body and architecture, Morris will utilise relief printing to consider ways of producing an image from the relief of an object. The resulting work explores how this method of reproducing from an original explores both ideas of identity, its loss, and how these might translate to both concepts of ‘family’ and ‘construction’. Key to this is the relationship between siblings and how identity can become merged, as well as the relationship between ‘new builds’ and ‘old builds’ within a city.
Looking at ideas of ‘growing up’ and exploring themes of renovation - from scaffolding to cosmetics – Sisters employs both text and moving image to investigate ways of visualising the effect time has on both an individual and a building.
