“Interior-ity” offers a study of a set of possibilities that define “art objects” using multiple perspectives offered by the participating artists. In the context of this exhibition, the very act of creation points to a set of processes which express the inner life of an artist, reflect the insider view of the art world, and question the interior arrangements of social spaces. The artists in the show contemplate how these processes, which generally occur within the art world and outside of the discursive sphere of general public, code the significance of what we perceive as art.

The site of this project is an office; a marker of a kind of the quotidian reality that encompasses a vast majority of human experiences in economically “developed” nations. Each work in the show is organically inscribed into the fabric of an office, contributing to the creation of an environment that hints at possibilities beyond utilitarian definitions of ether “business” or “art” spaces.

Various conceptual and formal approaches, media experiences and production modalities weave together a complex ecosystem that defines physical and virtual boundaries of the show. What truly unites the works of “Interior-ity”, is their function as tiny interventions into the internalized set of our lived experiences, a way that they inject the uncanny elements into the familiar environment of an office.
