An exhibition of envelopes as containers and messengers. Curated by Sophie Loss and Mary Yacoob

Envelopes >>> evocative objects >>> containers, messengers, witnesses >>> they hide and disclose >>> hint at communication >>> secret networks and allusions >>> postal system >>> icons on mobile phones >>> their content invisible >>> symbol for the pre internet era.

This is a group show presenting an installation housed in a gallery space. The gallery has been remodelled into domestic setting which acts as a container for envelopes and their insides. The artists selected for this show examine the formal aspect and the conceptual possibilities of the medium. The multiplicity of directions explored by individual artists reflects their practices and creates a whole which is complex, textured and fun.
