‘The Line in Space’ - Michele Elliot, Barbara Halnan, Anne Mosey and Elke Wohlfahrt create four separate installations in which line is a prominent element. Line as the extension of a point, may be elaborate or simple, free floating or defining, straight or curved. The Modernist edict of “taking the line for a walk” allows the line its own integrity, eventually receding from pencil on paper into space and location. The four installations use line as a means of responding three-dimensionally to the architecture of the project space.
Michele Elliot creates a wall work comprised of mapping pins and metres of thread. She traces the edge between both landscape and memory, and past and present.
Barbara Halnan stimulates visual excitement through the interaction of sets of lines between a two-dimensional wall drawing and a three-dimensional drawing in space.
Anne Mosey uses the available daylight to create lines of light within the space that move across the space during the day.
Elke Wohlfahrt makes use of line as an expressive vehicle with her brightly coloured timber installations that are linked to painting.
A key concern for Articulate Project Space is the spatial relationship of artworks and their physical location. Video by W.Seeto. Exhibition March 17 - April 1, 2012.
