The exhibition’s curator, Chelsea Marie writes –
The word itself suggests the object in question to be empty, to be unused or to not be busy. The same can be seen over the last couple of years of our lives during the pandemic. A halt had taken place and left the world to become unoccupied as it once was.
Artists and students have been left with less space to situate their work in a way of physical presence and engagement, which in turn has led to missed opportunities.
This exhibition is an open space that has been taken for a short time, where a gathering of BA and MFA students bring a variety of mediums, themes and concepts, come together and utilize a space; to occupy.”
