Alice Gale-Feeny (b. 1989 Brighton) lives and works in Nottingham, UK and has a studio at One Thoresby Street.
Two podiums sit waiting amongst other illusive devices. The work has been and is in transit; it appears precarious; active. It waits. The set-ups speak an institutional language. Referring to situations where speaker and audience are divided, it appears symbolic of an act of teaching and of being taught. Such structures emerge through an assemblage of materials; an elevation of status is implied through their totemic use. Suggestions indicate that the artist makes do; seeks to test potential. Materials are tools that act: just as the absent speaker performs their role when confronted with the audience.
