Inside the White Cube | North Gallery III, Bermondsey
For his Inside the White Cube exhibition, Brendan Lynch focused on the history of the programme at the Bermondsey gallery and the way it has been presented to the public. By analysing its systems of display, taking its cue from Brian O’Doherty’s 1976 seminal essay ‘Inside the White Cube, the Ideology of the Gallery Space’, Lynch investigated the point where ‘we see not the art but the space first’. He is interested in the architecture of the space, the flawless conditions of the cube and the proposed ‘vacuum created by such a viewing chamber’. In this exhibition Lynch presented a new series of works which use and abstract the imagery from past exhibitions with the artist’s gesture being the only addition.
