MATHESON presents a series of new painted works, responding to the site of the APPLECROSS art space. This exhibition considers the nature of artistic display, the institution and in particular the reclamation of the domestic and residential as a site for new initiatives. Buswell positions the APPLECROSS Space and its surrounding territory as a forum for the display and discussion of a series of future possible uses for domiciliary space, placing emphasis on sites empty or unused as potential vessels for forthcoming artistic actions. Mimicking the clumsy aesthetics of the common real-estate sign, these new works play on the way in which imminent commercial structures are made known and desirable, whilst putting into question the political implications of available public space and private property.
