Rachael Champion | The Waiting Room | Wimbledon Space

October 5, 2018

Hales Gallery is excited to announce the inclusion of Rachael Champion’s Lydia, 2018, in the exhibition The Waiting Room. This exhibition responds to the psycho-geography of Wimbledon Space – the original 1930’s foyer of the College. The foyer acts as a transitory space, where one might make a stop before being directed elsewhere. A place to gather our thoughts before our appointment, a portal to a new beginning, a moment where we have nothing to do but wait.

 

Waiting rooms are familiar places with familiar objects that are often calming and aid to make us feel at ease; the seating, a table with magazines, plants, daytime programmes on TV, a painting, a clock, and information posters. This exhibition locates artists who make objects reminiscent of those found in these rooms and brings them together to create a sculptural-collage installation in an undefined third space.
