Greta Van Oyen | Solid
26 August - 29 August 2014

Growing from an anthropological portrait of the institutional space around her, Van Oyen’s seminal exhibition ‘Solid’ seeks out definition, physically embodying and clarifying the psychological space occupied by uncertainty. Art objects are presented as evidence of the conversations that take place between the artist and the people that surround her, in addition to the discussions that occur within one’s own mind. Solid presents a collection of objects representative of the nostalgic deliberation that occurs in establishing a physical and psychological sense of place, whilst evidencing the didactic relationship between personal and institutional space.
