Curated by writer and art historian Katy Hessel, Dwelling is the Light is the first in a series of group and solo online exhibitions planned for this spring. Inspired by the evolving effects of the current global lockdown on our attitudes towards nature versus domestic living, Dwelling is the Light presents a curated selection of works by contemporary female artists working within a range of mediums, from figurative and abstract painting to tapestry, sculpture and photography. The title of the exhibition is derived from William Wordsworth’s seminal 1798 poem ‘Tintern Abbey,’ which centers on the author’s meditations on the restorative powers of nature, even in the form of memory. With its emphasis on the dichotomy between sublime nature and urban living, this landmark of British Romantic poetry serves as a point of comparison to these artists’ intimate and often surreal explorations of outdoors and indoors, interiors and exteriors, nature and domesticity.
