The concept of inside is the catalyst for a new installation created by BOXCARSIX, a Victoria-based feminist contemporary artist collective. For such a little word, inside holds much: it is laden with possibilities of privilege and belonging, but these depend upon its opposite – outside – and the borders, walls, and modes of thinking built to keep the right people inside and the wrong people out.
BOXCARSIX will alter the gallery to create a new space - a new inside - within which the visitor will be able to experience and re-consider notions of belonging – in our bodies, in our domestic spaces and even the urban and industrial landscapes in which we live.
Using household and industrial materials, juxtaposing hard and soft, the installation will create a bodily experience of inside, one that resonates personally and joins in the wider dialogue regarding who decides what it means to be inside.
