The lacuna, or lexical gap, represents a gap in translation, a place where multiple meanings are applied, where meanings shift and new interpretations can be made.
ArtLacuna is an artist-led space established in May 2013, located in an old coroner's office near Clapham Junction. It accommodates artist studios, a residency and research program, as well as project and exhibition space.

In/Out explores the act of border crossing between fashion, performance, body, material and image.
In a multi-screen video installation accompanied by live performance, the room becomes a pocket of space in-between borders; a malleable shifting landscape, moving in and out of states of dress.
Attention is brought to the individual daily act of dressing as a collective performative practice, relative to space and time. The concept of a collective body is created through the focus on garments as permeable interfaces between the body and environment, self and 'other'.
Collapsing the idea of the static flat fashion image, here fashion is approached through visceral body. Film and performance are used to present dress as a multi-sensory experience, rethinking our relationship to clothing and to one another.
