The title for this exhibition is taken from anthropologist, Victor Turner’s 1967 essay, Betwixt and Between: The Liminal Period in Rites de Passage. Originating from the analysis of initiation rituals, the liminal space is transitional; existing between two states, a threshold at which normal structures are suspended and we enter into the unknown. The term has been used to describe transitional places, in-between regions outside of determined positions. The works here explore landscapes which are both literal and suggestive of psychological or sensory thresholds—which though uncertain, contain, in Turner’s words; ‘a fertile nothingness, a storehouse of possibilities.

Curated by Benjamin Deakin and Rebecca Partridge
