Bridget Currie: Message from the meadow

The outcome of ACE Open’s inaugural Porter Street Commission, Bridget Currie’s ‘Message from the meadow’ explores how artworks provide sensory stimuli through the proximities and boundaries between bodies, objects and space. Organic, abstract forms made intuitively by the artist serve as physical koans (things that exist to ask a question), displayed amongst an ecology of bespoke domestic furniture that privileges intimacy and tactility.

The exhibition includes a sonic landscape of sound and spoken text and premieres Currie’s new film, soft insides, a non-linear documentation of pre-language encounters.
