Solution 66



"Solution 66 explores change of state, dispersal, how stuff is sent out into the world in different ways, held in or disguised by something else. Salt disappears into water but is still tasted on the tongue, sugar can be suspended...the notion of a dissolving agent presents our starting point for work. Solution 66 suggests a kind of solution that is equalising – dissolving barriers between art and the everyday, between text and object, between high and low, both in process and display. The number 66 corresponds to dysprosium on the periodic table; a silvery white rare earth element that reminds us of the fragility of things. It’s very beautiful and magnetic. In numerology, 66 is the master number of creativity; it is also connected with things domestic, close at hand, how as artists we often resort to making work at home, using domestic spaces to display. Solution 66 considers how we might create our own modes of circulation, if only for an instant, before they get dissolved." Isobel Atacus
