Art of Occupation, Working Rooms, London, September 2008
curated by Helene Kazan
The inaugural exhibition for TangentProjects featured Steve Smith, Helene Kazan, Simon Fraser, Cedric Christie, Emily Candela and Karen Ay. Inspired by Eyal Weizman's book, Hollow Land, artists were asked to occupy their own territory in the gallery space. The resulting work came from lengthy negotiations between the artists in order to formulate how their work integrated, as well as how they mark their own and each others' territorial space within the gallery. These conversations became part of a process that engendered and became a part of the work itself.
