Catherine Story @ Peer Gallery
25 November 2017 - 3 February 2018
SHADOW is a new site-specific installation and the most ambitious work to date for Catherine Story in her first solo exhibition for a public gallery. Commissioned by PEER to respond to its distinctive public-facing exhibition space, SHADOW melds the artist’s long preoccupation with the staging and lighting of 1930s films and Cubism, with a new interest in the dramatic landscape and geometric architecture of North Africa. Constructed across two thirds of PEER’s ten-metre wide gallery space, SHADOW converges Story’s diverse influences in a precisely illuminated three-dimensional topography of backdrop, painting and sculpture. During the day the installation is open for visitors, but on dark winter evenings it transforms into an enigmatic mise-en-scene, with elements of the work creating a playful shape-shift between interior and exterior, film set and streetscape.
