presented Anxious Space an off-site temporary exhibition which considered how the threat of environmental destruction changes the way we experience everyday spaces.
Featuring Loop members: Yael Brotman, Sheryl Dudley, David Holt, Adrian Fish, Ester Pugliese, Sandra Gregson, Tanya Cunnington, Mary Catherine Newcomb, Rochelle Rubenstein.
The change in perception of everyday spaces brought about by environmental threat could be anything from premature nostalgia to zealous protection, in other words, the threat of destruction highlights the fragility and importance of spaces typically taken for granted, rendering them sacred. In exploring the tension between sacredness and destruction, two important questions must be asked: what amount of threat to a space makes it sacred?; what amount of damage to a space it eliminates that sacredness?
