Spatial Awareness can be defined as the understanding of the self and of the relationships between objects within a given space. The four artists in this group exhibition manipulate this phenomenon of both visual and mental perception, through a combination of performance, sculpture & photographic documentation. If a performance or time based work is to be seen by an audience who are not present, some form of documentation is necessary; typically this will be photographic or video based. Each of the artists utilises the camera as an active participant and collaborator in their process, rather than as a silent observer recording their movements. In this way they retain complete control of their final image, which they often create alone and are not reliant on a third party interpretation. Within their work these four women take on the role of both director and subject, allowing them to subvert the generally accepted perception of the body in space; subtly challenging our expectations of how we observe one another and interact with our surroundings.
