Vitrine (2023 and ongoing)
I recently found a rather lovely oak and glass vitrine, circa 1900, for my new home in Exeter. It has three glass shelves (410mm x 560mm), and the base is oak. It stands in a corner of the living room in my 1920s house.
I always wanted a vitrine of my own: a glass cabinet in which I could showcase various treasured artefacts. I also thought that, if I had just the right kind, I could invite artist friends to install their artworks for short interludes.
So, now I have the vitrine and it is empty and awaiting the first of—what I hope will be—many forays by artists from my UK and international networks. Each installation will be documented to be compiled into an occasional publication.
I am excited to announce that artists Megan Calver and Gabrielle Hoad have agreed to collaborate on the inaugural ‘Vitrine’ in November 2023.
