EXCHANGE OF VIEWS

Caroline Broadhead
EXCHANGE OF VIEWS

25 August - 7 October 2007

Caroline Broadhead‘s practice brings the unusually autonomous areas of jewellery, textiles and performance art into close relationship. For some years now she has used garments to express ideas about personal identity and to reveal the characteristic feelings or emotions that a person may seek to conceal. In recent works, shadows have become an integral part of the work.

Born in 1950, Broadhead trained at the Central School of Art and Design, London. Public collections that hold examples of her work include the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; the Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto; and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. She was the winner of the Jerwood Prize for Applied Arts: Textiles in 1997.

At SOFT Caroline Broadhead will show the work “Exchange of Views”. The work is an image of a net curtain, made up of masses of fragments of mirror. This type of net curtain is very usual in the part of London where Caroline Broadhead lives. There is a choice about what one can look at. One can choose to look at the focal plane the mirror is on, or at the image reflected; where the image of the space and oneself is fragmented. Like the garment that the artist have used extensively in the past, the window and how it is dressed, is the interface between what is deemed one’s own and not one’s own - the boundary of ownership and territory.
