Space In Between is delighted to present the second gallery solo show of London- based artist Nicole Morris. Titled Sisters this body of new work explores ideas of growing up as a girl whilst, at the same time, growing up in an urban environment – looking at public development alongside that of human growth. Consisting of a series of large-scale fabric works that interact with moving image, Sisters explores the body, text and the wider community whilst also investigating the notion of doubling, being a sister, or a counterpart to someone, or something, else.

Continuing an on going study of using printmaking techniques to create architectural screens that act as both body and architecture, Morris has used relief printing to consider ways of producing an image from the relief of an object. The resulting large- scale fabric works explore how this method of reproducing from an original addresses both ideas of identity and its loss, and how these might both translate to concepts of ‘family’ and ‘construction’. Key to this is the relationship between siblings and how identity can become merged; the two projected video works playing together on occasion seem to mirror and ‘sister’ each other, just as the two fabric works appear as versions of each other. A process of doubling, the relationship between ‘new builds’ and ‘old builds’ within a city, looking at ideas of ‘growing up’ and exploring themes of renovation - from scaffolding to cosmetics – Sisters employs both text and moving image to investigate ways of visualising the effect time has on both an individual and a building.

Continuing Morris’ research into choreography - in particular how a viewer navigates an exhibition space – this exhibition is running alongside the artist’s residency at Camden Arts Centre where, through a series of workshops, she will be considering the body in relation to movement, architecture and the collective memory of a family.
