Memory of a Non-Place is a site-specific installation designed for the first-floor windows of prominent gallery Gazelli Art House, located on Dover Street in London.
Existing and proposed front elevations.
Photoshoot set up.
Detail of original pastel drawings.
Detail of veil.
In 2012, Gazelli Art House launched the Window Project, utilising the facade of the gallery as an additional frieze-style display platform.
Since 2015, the initiative has been repurposed to specifically support art school graduates through open call competitions three times a year.
The piece reflects on the concept of migration. Three vinyls depicting oil-pastel drawings are used to block the light in the gallery.
On the inside, the same depiction of the seascape drawings is being projected on a thin veil that oscillates continuously.
This organic movement is originated by three fans that allow the fabric to wave, mimicking the movement of the sea.
