Methods for Egress – Rachael Campbell-Palmer
Opening Preview: Thursday 14th January 2016
Every commercial building or structure must have egress designed into its plans from its inception. It is a continuous, unobstructed way of exit from any point and refers to an entire exit system including stairs, corridors, and doorways. The inclusion of these systems often dictates the entire dynamic of a space. Motivated by the architectural placement of egress the work considers associations between these types of physical structures, while thinking about the need for exit strategies from both a tangible and cognitive experience.
Methods for Egress is a new site-specific exhibition by Rachael Campbell-Palmer. Working pragmatically with utilitarian materials and processes in a way that allows the work to scale up or down through incremental production, Methods for Egress is an exhibition of sculptural works and interventions into the fabric of the gallery.
