Unmasking conventions: re-evaluating the notion of the double page spread

Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon

How do we account for the page as a material support and a discursive space in an exhibition context?

My project aims to re-evaluate the concept and the form of the page, in particular the double page spread as a particular space for art. This investigation explores the page as a material support and a discursive space in an exhibition context, relating it to concepts such as space, echo, duality, reflection and mirroring.

The purpose is to reflect how forms of presentation of the pages, as pieces of art in public spaces, have created a distinctive condition for the viewer to engage with the form of the double page spread.
