Microcosmology of the Three-Piece-Suite
Saturday, 22 January 2005 – Sunday, 6 February 2005
Using installation, performance and live events, six artists from Ruskin School of Art, Oxford attempt to encapsulate cosmic enormity through the microcosm of the domestic environment. Our ‘home’ can be viewed as a microcosm, an arena that mollycoddles all the contradictions inherent in the universe. The building that we are born into is the beginning of the universe; it is our stability – we will never leave it. Through their intervention with Campbell Works, six artists will attempt to send ruptures into this dense environment, through a systematic rationalisation of domestic myths. Each week they will expand their physical interaction with the space, enlarging&intensifying their relations with it, until the third and final week when the ‘microcosm’ will mushroom into the sober air outside the gallery and come face-to-face with the “big picture”.
