by Caroline Phillips displays her ongoing research into minimalism and craft. Phillips’ practice involves the accumulation of bulk materials, knotting, tying, hooking and applying flexible materials to hard surfaces.

The exhibition features the use of interior architecture, decoration and design of gallery surfaces to capture: ‘feminist language of the materiality of space’.

“I am using the architectural space as a material and conceptual metaphor for the human experience. My practice investigates the feminine body in space. Women have historically occupied a range of internal spaces – such as domestic interiors, familial relationships, physical and cultural roles and expectations – and in many cases the feminine has been considered as ‘surface’ (hidden interiority, or passive waiting to be inscribed upon by others ), ‘excess’ (out of control or ornamental) or ‘beautiful’ (idealised or lightweight).”
