Curator’s Choice

Horizontal IV by Gemma Cossey

The entries we received were of a very high quality and it was not easy to settle on a single piece for Curator’s Choice. I was particularly delighted by the range of interpretations on ‘Repetition’ we received. I enjoyed the humour in Sintija Vikmane’s Deaf Shakespeare, “The guy doesn’t even have ears anymore, so constant repetition is needed,” and the implied repetition of sight and sound in Julia Russel’s Muse on the Thames series and Dale Wilson’s Two Minutes Fifty One Seconds series. Dale’s precision in working with audio cassette tape to create geometrical pattern and depth is quite amazing. I also was attracted by Planting by Theo Wood and his creation of space and texture in the work. However, ultimately my choice was for Gemma Cossey’s Horizontal IV because of the visual manifestation of her working method and rules which, for me, illustrate the nature of recursion and thus the concept of repetition most related to the exhibition premise. Thanks again to you all!
