An initial experiment in 'Total Curating', Confined attempts to create a truly immersive, multi-sensory, multi-media experience for the viewer while exploring a single, conceptual focus. As part of the guest curated programme of One NEST stand, Confined brings together UK and Dutch artists: Adam Dix, Darren Harvey-Regan, Jan Maarten Voskuil, Kite & Laslett, Mogwai, Mikey Please, Ross Jones, Russell Hill, Sinta Tantra.
"The aim in proposing 'Total Curating' is to put a name and an expressed methodology to something that has been partially identified. It is conceived of as a framework for realising group exhibitions that brings together a broad range of creative outputs, that engage actively with as many relevant senses as possible, in an exploration of a single chosen subject. In ‘Total Curating’ the concept is primary. All other concerns whether commercial or institutional are secondary." Will Lunn, Curator
