Jo Capper
23rd July - 16th August 2003
additional text/images
The artist Jo Capper has transformed the red gallery with unusual smells, textures and colours.

In each of the three rooms she has 'flocked' part of the gallery floor. In doing so, Capper draws our attention to some of the more unsightly features of the gallery; Creating a contrast between the intense synthetic sensory experience of the texture and smell with the concrete features of the space:

In the first room we encounter the smell of 'spaceship' and a set of soft grey stripes that draw our attention to the skylight above... are we about to be beamed up?

The final room consumes us with a yellow luminosity and the acrid salty smell of the beach, a wash of yellow fur seems to be seeping from under a blocked off door. What kind of beach is this?
