From the Corner Window, at St Martin-in-the-Fields

News of a group show in the Crypt of St Martin-in-the-Fields starting 5 September:

From the Corner WindowFrom the Corner Window brings together five artists and three curators to respond to the theme of intriguing and investigative viewing of the representational space that makes up a city, its streets, and the crowds that gather within them. This group show, beginning on the 5th of September 2011, promises to present an eclectic and varied response to the theme by five artists whose works have been thoughtfully selected by curators Jihyun Ahn, Young Kim and Gilbert Richards for their unique individuation and captivating subjective glance at the city in general.

My Cousin’s Corner Window is a short piece by E.T.A Hoffmann. Hoffmann’s cousin, looking down into the crowd from his corner window, observes the crowd and gives his visitor a lesson on how to really “see” things. In this exhibition, entitled From the Corner Window, three emerging curators invite artists who show a thoughtful observation of the image of big-city crowds and suggest different way of perceiving it.

  1. One of my Korean friends is a curator for the next exhibition at St Martins ‘Madeleine in One Afternoon’ – random comment I know, but it seems like a creative sequence of exhibitions 🙂
