Blind Spot is a room sized site specific installation which continues George Charman’s fascination with grid forms, pattern and geometry. Silver and black chain screens hang from the gallery’s ceiling in a quincunx grid formation creating a three-dimensional sculptural pattern where the curtains form smaller intimate spaces. Interspersed throughout are drawings that explore the quincunx transformed into two dimensions.
Blind Spot challenges not only how we perceive space by creating temporary sub-divisions, but also the physicality and solidness of an object. At first glance the chain screens hanging in grid formation appear as solid planes of black and silver through the gallery window. Walking around the installation you quickly realise what you first thought was a solid object is in fact permeable. The room sized installation is in fact permeable. The room size three-dimensional pattern turns out to be fluid and changeable.
Blind Spot only survives for the period of this exhibition. The installation and drawings were re-hung weekly each time creating dynamic new spaces.
