[Sur] face: The Subjectivity of Space

Main Article Content

col Fay


In this article, I discuss the public installation [Sur]face, held in 2011 in the Dunedin School of Art Gallery, with regard to contemporary interdisciplinary practice and its engagement with modernist practices. It employed the language of architecture, through concepts of façade, decoration and threshold, in relation to notions of the body. Here I emphasise how light was addressed in the exhibition as liminal space.
