Apartment presents O T an exhibition marking the end of Cherry Tenneson’s residency at Apartment. Tenneson has concentrated on the signs installed by the council in the communal areas of the tower block. By appropriating the format of the signs, and subtly altering the content and context, Tenneson comments on the audience’s experience and appearance of municipal authority. The augmented signs will be visible throughout the building by residents and visitors to Apartment; who will also have access to work shown in the flat.

Preview – Thursday 13th July 6pm-8pm

"The work made for this show was inspired by the disappearance of two letters from the block’s main entrance sign which has resulted in the building gaining a new name. The remaining signs throughout the tower block have now been corrected to display its new name."
