Expanded Interiors Re-Staged - Exhibition Guide
The interpretation leaflet was designed by Jaakko Tuomivaara from Supergroup Studios. Texts are by Catrin Huber and Rosie Morris. Photography by Amedeo Benestante (Gallery 1, Gallery 4), Catrin Huber (Gallery 2), Rosie Morris (Gallery 3), and need to be credited accordingly.
The interpretation leaflet provided an introduction to the project, research and exhibition and guided the viewer through the exhibition. Texts by the respective artists (Catrin Huber / Rosie Morris) provided contexts for the different exhibition galleries while linking the research / installations to Hadrian’s Wall and relevant local museums (e.g. Segedunum, Hancock Museum). The guide was / is available in physical / digital form in the Hatton Gallery and on its website, and on the Expanded Interiors Re-Staged’s website.
The Expanded Interiors Re-Staged exhibition forms one of the key outputs of the Expanded Interiors Re-Staged project.
The exhibition, Expanded Interiors Re-Staged,
relocated to Newcastle’s Hatton Gallery contemporary installations created by
visual artist Catrin Huber as part of an earlier project, Expanded
Interiors, which had been sited and displayed at the UNESCO World
Heritage Sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii. The installations sited at the House
of the Beautiful Courtyard in Herculaneum and the House of the Cryptoporticus in
Pompeii, had responded to and were in dialogue with the specific nature of the
buildings and wall paintings from these two Roman houses. They were shown in
situ from May 2018 – January 2019.
In the Hatton Gallery in Newcastle these
installations were exhibited alongside new work developed by Catrin Huber to
set them in a fresh dialogue in a new context, with the distinctive
architecture of the Hatton Gallery.
Artist Rosie Morris, who was part of the original Expanded Interiors research team was commissioned to develop her own contemporary installation in response to the research done within the Roman houses, and the new venue
