Questions To Ask Yourself Before Building Your First House
Group show featuring work by Miranda Blennerhassett, Emma Ewan and Katie McGown.
“In order to understand the function of ornament, we must begin by understanding the nature of space in general. Space, when properly formed, is whole. The main purpose of ornament in the environment – in buildings, rooms and public spaces – is to make the world more whole by knitting it together….” This group show, featuring work by Miranda Blennerhassett, Emma Ewan and Katie McGown, explores the systematic appropriation of architectural styles and details to create abstracted, yet recognisable environments.
