Limen a solo exhibition by Esther Cooper-Gittins

UNTITLED2-WEBRecent Falmouth University graduate Esther Cooper-Gittins embarks on her first solo exhibition, with her drawings installed in response to the beautiful and unconventional space that is the Edwardian Cloakroom. The Latin word Līmen (meaning threshold) is where the word liminality is derived from. A space between two points. A transitional period. From a distance the drawings could be mistaken for blocks of grey shading, it is only when you approach the work that you are rewarded with the details. Each piece contains thousands (or hundreds of thousands) of individually and intentionally placed marks that explore the ideas surrounding liminality, borders, containment and transgression. Visibly labour intensive, the work aims to allow the viewer to become as engrossed in the work as the artist was when producing it. Līmen, takes place at Edwardian Cloakroom, Park Row/Woodland Road. 6th to 10th November, 10:00-18:00. Private View 5th November 19:00-21:00 In association with Bristol Creative Spaces and Supported by Bristol City Council.
