Jan Vercruyyse

Look what I just found on the Xavier Hufkens site here - Shaker Pegs = art.

Sol Lewitt

Sol Lewitt at City Hall Park, curious structures, some appear to nod at function others are more monumental and vaguely architectural, perhaps though suggesting a way of constructing that is more engaging and makes accessing your work, challenging/exciting?

Build bad

Kind of rudimentary, kind of clumsy but not building that is resolved through a monochrome treatment, perhaps this is another consideration when thinking about how to bring together objects that perhaps do not have an obvious visual connection. Courtesy of here thank you.

Michael Johannson

Courtesy of here thank you.


Ex architect Alan Wexler designs/builds oddly [un]utilitarian spaces and pieces of furniture - again something that has a resonance or 'feature' to it that could help to identify you [collectively].

Shaker joy

Some more examples of Shaker innovation [again thanks to Zeel] - this may/may not be relevant to the thinking about the show design but could be interesting to have a folding or removable set of furniture/show space that becomes a feature of one of the rooms? Somehting to create a bit of a buzz around your book works perhaps - or the space that you want to show objects?

Direktorenhause Vs Shaker

Hmmm, peg based modular storage facility that could accommodate a true 'pop up' shop, something that could be made on the day and stored in the evening, variously moved from one location to another - imagine that - innovation. Thanks to Zeel.

Simple, elegant book display

Again seen in New York [this time a Boo Hooray gallery], a simple elegant unit produced to display books/flat sequential work. Quite conventional but is definitely fit for purpose.

Asymmetric blob shelf sculpture

Some sculpture seen in New York. There is something to consider here regarding the design of the graduation show - perhaps there is some scope to move away from the overly geometric and regular?, this 'shelving' could be bespoked to accommodate different sized objects and could be a quiet feature in its own right.

Another consideration for the curation of the show should be the grouping [or not] of works by type, for instance a room for 3D, one for mediated or reproduced imagery and one for flat 2D stuff?
