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.

For FAKE SUN at ArtLacuna, Mette Boel has generated a semi tropical atmosphere in the gallery space by facilitating a feeling of a temporary warmness. The show hints at topics such as rootlessness, longing, dreaming and adventure.
A wall mural and four electrical heaters placed in each corner of the space, form the cornerstone of the installation. The warmness brings about an interesting contrast to the industrial feel of ArtLacuna, whilst also suggesting a reference to the general living conditions and temporality of life in the city.
