Synecdoche presents [dis]place at The Vestibules, City Hall, Bristol
dis: prefix – changing a term to the negative
place: noun – a particular position, point, or area in space; a location
verb – to put something somewhere
displace: verb – to move or put out of the usual or proper place
A group of artists from Synecdoche, a Bristol-based art community, will explore the
ideas that these definitions evoke during their month-long residency at The
Vestibules in September 2017. Displaced from their normal routines to make
art in a public space, they are aiming to work differently, reacting to this new
environment, bringing a range of practices and ideas that will hopefully change and
evolve over time. The visitors may influence what happens, through interaction,
conversation or by their very presence. There will always be something to see, to
inspire and engage. Come with an open mind; every day will be different.
Can the experience of being displaced offer a fresh perspective, unexpected
connections and a new understanding?
We’ll be there at other times too. If the doors are open, please come in.
