Ghost in The Hay: Kim Bennett, Maysha Mohamedi, Laurie Reid and Elizabeth Russell
The title for this four-person show refers to both the former life of the Interface Gallery space as a horse stable in the early 20th century as well as to these artists’ interest in the “ghosts” present in their own work. These four artists all make work in a variety of mediums and dimensions and invite carryover from one project to the next as well as from each other and other close influences. Often using their own work as “found” material for their next series of investigations, themes and forms emerge and re-emerge over time in practices that are distinctly cyclical in nature.
These artists share a common interest in geometry and other systems of representation only to disrupt them, questioning and challenging these systems’ ability to communicate. Working in states of constant interruption, they find a certain stillness there—a moment where a distillation occurs and a chance for new meaning becomes possible.
