Whopping Enigma: The Magic Space

This exhibition seeks to explore the spaces we enter when we become fully immersed in our creative practices. It alludes to the sensation of losing oneself and merging into the creative moment. It is deep rooted, allowing us to reach a moment of absorption and intuited action, whereby we are able to bring forth our most essential work.

The Magic Space is something of a contradiction, a whopping enigma; It doesn’t exist and yet we have all been there, at these moments of complete immersion and surrender. The artists in this exhibition enter into it again, to create, but this time the Magic Space is both theme and destination…

Exhibiting artists: Lesley Barker, Caroline Gregory, Emma Harding, Luiza Machado, Helen Savage, Abi Stockbridge and Neale Willis.
Curated by: Helen Savage and Abi Stockbridge
