Some make do with a laptop and a kitchen table, taking care not to spill tea on their keyboards. Others prop open garage doors to vent hazardous chemicals
while applying a coat of shellac. And there are those fortunate enough to have a studio of their own in which to create, even if it is unheated.
The creative process will not be denied due to a lack of proper space but it may be shaped by those physical constraints. Likewise an artist may remake their workspace in their own image. The artists participating in ‘Workplace Affairs’ demonstrate their own particular relationships to space and work, with a range of practices that cross disciplines and a variety of spaces where work gets done.
‘Workplace Affairs’ is an exploration of the relationship of space to the creative process, examining the artefacts of production and documenting the workspaces that enabled their creation. Curated by LeuWebb Projects, the exhibition documents the workplaces of artists and offers up artefacts from these spaces for interpretation.
Featuring the work and workplaces of Melissa Fisher, Patrick Svilans, Joy Charbonneau, Lizz Aston, Patrick Yeung, Clayton McMaster and Jyhling Lee.
