Echo chamber reflects on the studio as a space in which thoughts, ideas and beliefs reverberate and are amplified by the repetition of rituals and processes artists define for themselves and the ongoing relationship they have with their materials and the spaces they work in.
Studios can be a place where perceptions, incentives and other instruments of self censorship operate to become an echo chamber out of which only part of an artists practice are exhibited.
Each Bankley studio holder has chosen an object from their studio that holds special significance for them…a personal token, side products of the studio practice that never get shown, objects of inspiration, a certain tool. Giving us new insight and a different perspective into the studio practice of these artists, the exhibition also features new documentation and discourse from the artists examining the role of the studio and their practice.
