(ART) Art in Parenthesis

How can interior design practice extend the discourse concerning contemporary art galleries and spaces? This research considers an expanded notion of curation and explores the role that an interior designer can have within contemporary art. This practice oscillates between that of observer and collaborator, neither singularly artist or designer. This trans-role lingers between an interior designer and a curator; an Inter~ator. When we understand the practice of Interior Design as establishing relationships between people and objects, we can begin to use curatorial tools in prompting a spatial experience.
This project proposes a set of strategies - both physical and conceptual - that activates the role of Inter~ator to subvert the gallery, critically intervening the ‘space’ or ‘interior’ of an exhibition.
