Warehouse of Horrors

01.11.09 – 15.11.09

SWG3, Glasgow

EMBASSY present Warehouse of Horrors an exhibition that brings together the work of 14 artists from a broad range of backgrounds who have different approaches to their practices. The uniting factor in the work is an embedded influence of horror in both a literal and an abstract sense.

For this exhibition the work is installed in an approximation of a set for a low/ no budget horror casting the visitor as protagonist in a loose narrative structure. The gallery is subdivided into separate areas working with the extant architecture of the space and the phenomenological characteristics that it inherits from the collective memory of the warehouse as a site for violence and abjection. This structure has been built in collaboration with several of the artists and the EMBASSY committee.
