Chantelle Purcell talks to Annabel Tilley to find out about the current exhibition 'Home' at Core gallery, which is co-curated by Annabel Tilley and Rosalind Davis. Home features the work of 12 contemporary and international acclaimed artists who explore the question: What does home mean today?
The concept of home has become a widespread subject of increasing tension in the 21st Century, affecting all aspects of society and identity. Home is no longer a safe word but a loaded word and a delicate place, vulnerable to attack – both globally, financially and intimately. In this interview we find out about the motivations and curatorial development of this exhibition. We talk about the resurgence in drawing over the past decade and the potentials of contemporary drawing practice we also discover more about Annabel’s practice.
‘Home’ has been extended to this months Last Fridays in association with South London Art Map where Core will also be holding a closing party (as they will be relocating to a space in Deptford).
