    In this exhibition the gallery space was divided by various wooden modules - each module existed as a loose structure in which work by different creators was housed. 

In this exhibition the gallery space was divided by various wooden modules - each module existed as a loose structure in which work by different creators was housed. 

 These structures epitomise the project’s concept, allowing an interweaving of the artist’s intentions (inherent in their work) and an unexpected element arising from the manipulated setting.
