Hamni Gallery is pleased to announce the 25th Interim exhibition ‘Breathing Space’ by a group of international artists responding to the above theme.

There are often times where we need to switch off, do nothing, say nothing, go nowhere and think of what we should do next. 
These are the moments that we need to ourselves which we cannot do without and are the basic premises that found the necessary space needed to reflect, think back and let the mind go blank. 
There is a sense of quietness and serenity associated with these moments that can often be the springboard of new ideas and projects in an artists practice.

While this can be conducive to artistic production, at the same time, this sense of inaction is somehow uncomfortable and we need to produce and realize these new ideas.

The aim of this exhibition is to provide artists with this breathing space, a vacant space where they can spend some time in or a place which can just serve as inspiration for a new project. 
In a building that is silent with little distractions and no demands, this space allows the artists the freedom to do something fresh.

From a variety of media such as installation, video, print, sculpture and drawing, the artist reflect on moments that made them stop.

With an infinite influx of opportunities around us we manage somehow to become stuck, we freeze, but moments of respite such as this allows us out of that corner and into a clearing where everything is possible and nothing is out of reach. Our minds are clear and we feel unburdened and, free from ourselves and our own expectations, we think of nothing and sometimes nothing is enough!

Curated by Jennifer Kidd, the works in this exhibition give as sense of stillness and become part of the visceral state of the space while allowing the visitor a view to a realm only possible in the Hanmi Gallery’s current state.

Hanmi Gallery is due to undergo major refurbishment but is currently hosting a programme of interim exhibitions, of which ‘Breathing Space’ is the 25th. The gallery’s inaugural exhibition will take place in Autumn 2014.Hamni Gallery is pleased to announce the 25th Interim exhibition ‘Breathing Space’ by a group of international artists responding to the above theme.
