11 – 30 May 2012MK Gallery, Milton Keynes
The Brechtian idea of the fourth wall – the imaginary wall set at the front of the stage, through which the audience are looking – arose with theatrical realism. Concerned with the imaginary boundary between the work and audience Admitting the Flats took the exhibition setting as a device for the staging temporary fictions.
This screening program and related video installation presented works whose structure and form attempt to make the viewer aware of the edges of their own virtual spaces. When we see these edges the fiction comes undone and a carefully constructed space suddenly comes apart.

A coinciding printed publication was produced by White Room Press.
