Lunchtime Conversation | Phill Hopkins & Jadene Imbusch
12 Sep 2019 12pm
‘A House Within A Home’ by Phill Hopkins and ‘Pitched’ by Jadene Imbusch are two solo exhibitions that look at the subject of what makes a House a Home and the distinctions between the two concepts.
In the case of Hopkins, whose career has been defined by a world of miniaturised representations of the ambitions and problems of the world in which we live, ‘A House Within A Home’ scales up the work into a sculptural installation spread over two rooms at BasementArtsProject. The project looks at the burgeoning homelessness crisis, the politics of wider society and their impact on both a local and world scale. Over the years Hopkins has looked at the world through the biased lens of popular media and attempted to create a more balanced view on the world situation, here Hopkins pulls the focus onto a subject at the heart of this South Leeds community and translates it in his own very singular manner.
In the format of a 'slight' intervention throughout the ground floor of the house, ‘Pitched’ by Jadene Imbusch looks at the subject of transience within a community, using her work to highlight the presence of those that are most ignored and neglected.
In the lead up to these exhibitions, Hopkins and Imbusch worked on a mail art project sending eight individual pieces back and forth in the post adding their own contributions to each others work.‘A House Within A Home’, ‘Pitched’ and ‘Collaborations On The Corner’ are part of ‘On The Corner’, and have received support from INDEX FESTIVAL . Documentation of the collaborations can be found at https://www.basementartsproject.com/collaborations-on-the-corner
