A curatorial project after 'Room' by Lucas Samaras (1964). " enter Room at CAST Gallery is to find a familiar domestic setting made strange, dreamlike and uncanny. The artworks in Room are the type that provokes doubt and curiosity, raising questions relating to expectation, perception and how we understand the world. ...the architectural space of the gallery, the door you enter through, the floor, walls, corners, ceiling, are all implicated in the overall assemblage. ...formal, spatial and narrative relationships emerge between the artworks and across the space as an overall sequence, the particular sensibility of each work filtered through the exhibition as a whole." (Exhibition catalogue.)
