"Whether it’s a slightly scraped hollow in the ground or an elaborate four poster, a bed is the one piece of furniture that humans throughout history have possessed.
We are almost certain to have been born in a bed and many of us will die in one, and between those two events a bed is a place where all life unfolds. It is a place to sleep and dream, a place to read and daydream. It is a place to make love, or to hide under the covers - our safe space, where the monsters of childhood imaging cannot find us. But it can also be a sick bed, hospital bed, or our death bed.
This exhibition doesn’t see a bed as a piece of furniture, but as a metaphor for life in all its fullness".
Bed is curated by Richard Davey and David Leapman, and features works by Jenny Hager, Susie Hamilton, David Leapman and Lee Maelzer.
