Bed

4 Nov 2021–28 Nov 2021
PV 4 Nov 2021, 5-8pm

Overview

Curated by Richard Davey and David Leapman, featuring Jenny Hager, Susie Hamilton, David Leapman, Lee Maelzer.

"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".

- Richard Davey
