Carolyn Eskdale, Memory Horizon 2020, installation view
In Memory Horizon Carolyn Eskdale presents new work that responds to the modernist architecture of Heide Modern—formerly a domestic house commissioned by Heide founders John and Sunday Reed as ‘a gallery to be lived in’—and that activates the house as its own cast object.
After spending time ‘inhabiting’ the building and making ephemeral installations in each of its seven rooms, Eskdale has developed a sculptural language of motifs and forms specific to its character and history. This in-situ work and documentation is incorporated into the exhibition itself, as she explores the history of Heide Modern as a domestic and public space, the interstices between private and public life, and the overlap between the studio and the gallery.
