Space In Between is delighted to present The Dithering, the second gallery solo show by Sarah Bayliss. The starting point of the exhibition is an abstract play written by the artist as a device through which to think about - and produce - new works. The Dithering uses text, drawings, sound and video to expand the play into actual space, looking at the complexities and pressures of having to make choices as we struggle to make sense of what is happening to us; as entangled events unfold differentially before a backdrop of impending ecological and political crises.

The Dithering contemplates uncertainty or inaction as a resistant source of potential – as a possible locus for creativity and imagination; as a means of disorganising the world as we know it; as insurrection: change. It is also contemplated as the immaterial, cowardly or lazy inaction of one who cannot - or will not - fight for their rights or those of others. The work draws upon this multiplicity of meaning and the accumulation of options, towards an illusive moment of clarity.  

As part of this exhibition, Bayliss has developed a live event in collaboration with artist Alfonso Borragan, which will take the form of a dinner at Hatch Café (opposite the gallery) on 25th May 2017. The dinner seeks to draw out a positive exchange of ideas between the artists and participants, exploring how the body and its actions relate to key concepts of The Dithering .
