The Stephen Lawrence Gallery
From a social perspective an architecture (in the broadest sense of the word) that does not possess the potential to ‘un-plan’ itself will be experienced as static and predictable; and alternatively, spaces that do deviate from a plan carry the potential to have productive effects on experience, stimulating new forms of sensing relations in space.
Each work in this exhibition possesses its own internal and organized rigor. How these organized system may come to change or transform is the subject of the exhibition. Thus, the exhibition itself is conceived as an experiment in the sense that the activation of the ‘unplanned’ is contingent on a kind of choreographing between the individual parts.
Planning and the avoidance of the unpredictable clearly matter in our shared environment and in many other areas of day to day life. An artwork that carries the potential to produce something in excess of a plan won’t mitigate the need or necessity for order but it might de-position the hold of structured determination in all areas of life.
