Un Jour de Beauté

Shepley, A and Dutton, S (2007) Un Jour de Beauté. The Nunnery, London, UK, 14 September - 30 October 2007.

Item Type: Exhibition
Creators: Shepley, A and Dutton, S
Abstract: The assemblage of models, texts, video and photographic imagery in this exhibition shows a pre-occupation with the acts of cutting, rejoining, inverting and reflecting, revealing a ‘potential space’ - perhaps within the ‘joins’ themselves. These acts often involve violence against a ‘piece of work’ and a feeling of calculated ruination befalls any intended ‘outcome’ - of course these acts also alter the genetic structure of the thing forming a new combination. The splice or seam is imagined as an abyss - something immeasurably deep or infinite - and this distance delays closure in the work and gives time to look and reflect together with a sense of ‘remove’. The impression of provisionality in the work and referencing to ruin as a verb as well as a noun indicates something in process and in the act of taking place in the here and now.
