Maybe a new exhibit for the conceptual art show at 55 Leroy Street
(open Sat + Sun 2-6pm until 30th March)?
Details below of "Forensic":
Forensic is the first 'The Space In-Between' project. It takes the space itself as the starting point for an exhibition of installations and interventions.
The building at 55 Leroy Street
awaits transformation from vacant light-industrial warehouse to contemporary apartments.
Structural and cosmetic changes to the interior have created an environment that bears traces of previous occupants.
Though specific references are difficult to locate there is documentation of trades including wheelwrights, underwear makers and 'novelty' producers registered at the address.
Seven artists were invited to investigate the historical and current condition of the building - the exhibition presents their responses.
Declaration of interest : My cousin, Mandy Williams is one of the exhibitors. Nice show, though.
