Unboxing the travelling show from (Arts) Territory Exchange is currently at Shelf!

‘The Arts Territory Exchange presents un-boxing a travelling exhibition in a box; Moving across continents to be opened and displayed in a number of intriguing domestic and alternative locations. Posted across a network of curators, artists and archivists.

The exhibition takes its name from the pleasures and excitements of receiving postal mail and packages; opening, tearing, ripping and rifling through contents and the Youtube ASMR world of opening and unwrapping through which many people receive sensory comfort.

Through Un-Boxing we play with the ideas of gifting….receiving….waiting and excitement…each recipient will curate a mini show from the material they receive and then add something to the box before posting it on. The audiences for the work may be families, children, pets, or neighbours peering through windows…’

Will next move on to Plas Bodfa – Anglesey Wales

The home of curator Natalie Pace, Felixstowe Suffolk
