Breathing Space consists of a number of pieces produced for an exhibition with the same title at Hanmi Gallery, in London. I spent a week on site making work that responded to the current physical state of gallery using a limited range of media (drawing and casting materials). The idea was to somehow create indexical objects that capture details of the room I was exhibiting in before they vanish when the building is rebuilt. The resulting work is, therefore, a materialization of a transitional state of the site.
