Fall Scenes, an exhibition that borrows and adapts its title from William Raban’s included film Autumn Scenes (1978), takes as its starting point the process of making indistinct the perimeters of inside and out. Taking place mostly in a former furniture showroom (a specialist in recliners) incidental objects, seasonality and the distractions and influences of daily life become actions deployed to permeate the exhibition proper.

Operating across a variety of cultural and temporal registers, the contents of the exhibition are encouraged to act upon each other, like haphazard contents of the utility closet rather than objects of innocuous purity, unperturbed by harmonious surrounds.

Fall Scenes is an expanded exhibition co-initiated by Jennifer Bailey, Allison Gibbs, Tessa Lynch and Þorgerður Ólafsdóttir that invites works by Nita Begg, Olivier Castel, Sigurður Guðmundsson, William Raban and Lili Reynaud-Dewar to temporarily live alongside a selection of incidental objects and interior interventions. The project has been developed in conversation with Sarah Tripp and includes an off-site event by Brandon Cramm.

Fall Scenes would like to thank low pressure, cold fronts, IKEA and good bacteria.
