SEAMLESS SERIES OF EQUIPMENT
6 June - 18 July 2013
Zoe Schoenherr's exhibition at The Foundry Gallery will reflect upon how her body relates to equipment in gymnastics, and investigate how the materiality and structure of our surrounding architecture implies and choreographs movement. The exhibition will depict a selected transitional space, familiar to her and refer to the notion of buildings functioning as a seamless series of equipment that we interact with on a repetitive basis - a repetition that dismantles our conscious movement and relationship to our surroundings to reveal our authentic relationship to place.
