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

College: Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon
Supervisors: Professor Paul Coldwell, Susan Johanknecht

Introduction

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.

Aims and objectives

  • 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.
