INSTRUCTIONS FOR WAITING
13th April 2021
Liminal Gallery is delighted to present their debut exhibition ‘Instructions For Waiting’ curated by Louise Fitzjohn.
2020 was the year we all waited. In a rare moment, the world stood still and life as we knew it was paused. As we continue to wait, Liminal Gallery asked artists to provide their Instructions For Waiting, instructions scribbled on a Post-It Note which viewers are encouraged to practice at their own leisure. These Instructions may be positive affirmations, a call to action, an activity; the exhibition aims to ease your pain in waiting and, at the very least, to pass some time before the wait finally comes to an end.
Taking place digitally on a newly designed website, the works included are not for sale, rather this is a collaborative effort to make sense and take charge of our current positions, as well as the bringing together of a new community of artists working across the UK.
Artists include Juli Bolaños-Durman, Lena Brazin, Kristy M Chan, Sam Creasey, Matthew Dommett, Emilie Fitzgerald, Mafalda Figueiredo, Damien Flood, Tomas Harker, Philip Jonathan, Jure Kastelic, Tamsin Relly, Davide Restifo, Fipsi Seilern, David Shillinglaw, Luke Silva, Alexis Soul-Gray, Olivia Strange, Rebecca Swainston, Benji Thomas and Twinkle Troughton.
The exhibition forms part of a wider exhibition ‘The Waiting Place’ inspired by a Dr Seuss poem from one of his last books ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’ and curated by Ann-Marie James and Emily Godden, commissioned by The Art Station and supported by Arts Council England. The exhibition invites creatives from all fields to submit a postcard which responds to this very poignant poem. The exhibition will take place physically at The Art Station in Saxmundham, Suffolk as well as a digital platform during April 2021. Follow the exhibition digitally across the following platforms:
