Just needed to make a quick note about what I’ve learned and gathered from the experience of curating and exhibiting my work at Kanteena on the 28th February 2020.
One of the main things I noticed was the impact of exhibiting my drawings on a surface that wasn’t just a white wall.
The transparent fence lifted the drawings, allowing them to gain more independence and autonomy.
The relationship between the work and its surroundings also changed immediately as a result.
Therefore, in the future it will be important to consider how hanging the drawings and lifting them off the wall can have an impact on the way it is perceived by others.
And how this could potentially emphasise its message better.
