Melissa Gordon’s new work Fallible Space is a two-part project which invites the viewer to reflect on the exhibition process as ‘a theatre in the round’. Alongside seven paintings on display within Bluecoat’s Vide gallery, Gordon launched additional works through a staging of Mina Loy’s 1916 play Collision at the exhibition’s opening on Friday 22nd January. The text offered a starting point for the physical arrangement of Gordon’s canvases, which were hung in front of a live audience in response to the directions given in the play.

Painter, printmaker and editor Melissa Gordon is interested in addressing the exhibition as a ‘theatre in the round’: highlighting shifting perspectives when staging her work.  Tonight at 7pm, 22nd January 2016 she launches Fallible Space, a week long exhibition in Bluecoat's Performance Space with the first ever staging of Mina Loy's 1916 play Collision.
