I'm OK, You're OK

Merryn Hull’s interdisciplinary practice reflects on the way we connect to reality on a daily basis while also exploring the relationship between the narrative and the viewer. It does this by placing objects in quasi-architectural installations so that ordinary objects are seen to be extraordinary in ways discovered by the viewer.

From Friday 05 February 2016 to Saturday 20 February 2016

The title of Merryn Hull’s exhibition explores the idea of ‘being’ and references Eric Berne’s Transactional Analysis concept of 4 levels of OK-ness. It does this by creating the opportunity to look into our lives from the outside and builds on the idea that ordinary things can become quite special if viewed in particular ways. Ordinary objects are transformed into art objects so that aluminium, plastic sheet, foil, coloured wrap and tape expand elements of daily life into a broader narrative. Hull’s work is composed of a series of framed views and reflective surfaces which locate and also distort the viewer’s sense of contemporary realism. It does this through the use of the ‘window’, the mirror and the digitised image which act as framing mechanisms for a momentary, found connection to a different though recognisable reality.
