EMBASSY present Warehouse of Horrors, an exhibition that brings together the work of 14 artists from a broad range of backgrounds who have different approaches to their practices. The uniting factor in the work is an embedded influence of horror in both a literal and an abstract sense.
For this exhibition the work is installed in an approximation of a set for a low/no budget horror casting the visitor as protagonist in a loose narrative structure. The gallery was subdivided into separate areas working with the extant architecture of the space and the phenomenological characteristics that it inherits from the collective memory of the warehouse as a site for violence and abjection. This structure has been built in collaboration with several of the artists and the EMBASSY committee.
EMBASSY would like to thank all the artists and writers who have worked with us on this project, The Mobile Picture Salon (Ewan and Jo Sinclair), Glasgow Sculpture Studios, everyone at Galerie Guido Baudach Berlin, Ruby Stiler at Studio Breuning and everyone at +44 141 gallery and Studio Warehouse Glasgow.
