Tree House Down
Sebastian Lloyd Rees
11 August - 24 October 2015
During August 2015, Ibid. Los Angeles will host a project inviting artists to exhibit and create new works. The event broadens a research -based initiative that monitors theprocess of dismantling the gallery's current premises. Tree House Down assesses the role ofagallery inthecontext of a rapidly growing creative community, working just ahead of property developers’ investment interests.
In 2010, Amir Mogharabi conceived MatérielPerdu, a project staged with fellow artists to inaugurate a new Ibid. venue in East London. Using onlymaterials found on siteleft bythe previous tenant, Matériel Perdu defined a role forthe gallery at a particular location and time.
Similarly, demographic andtopographical constraints in TreeHouse Down become dimensions in the ongoing development of a context imbued with material possibilities. Where means are no longer understood as ends, when the outcome of the very space is ambiguous, there is steadiness in the means, ultimately letting the ambiance serve as guide.
