Solo Residency Exhibition
Private View: 31 January 2019, 6-9pm
Exhibition Dates: 1-8 February 2019
Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop is excited to present Pool, the solo residency exhibition by our current artist in residence Solveig Settemsdal. Please join us for the Private View on Thursday, 31 January 2019 from 6-9pm. Solveig Settemsdal has completed her 3 month residency at Unit 1 Gallery | Workshop and we are delighted to announce her exhibition Pool. Settemsdal is fascinated by the mutability of object and medium, and our indescribable and often impossible relationship to our environment. Investigating symbols of material prosperity, Solveig presents an upturned world where the understood becomes the uncanny and cannot return to the mundane. The ubiquitous luxury accessory of the swimming pool becomes a device to discuss the nature of water hoarding. Pool looks at mistranslations that occur between us and our technology in interpreting material reality : what goes missing, and what is created.
