possible area – sole possession

possible area takes control of the Frontroom as a personal and creative space, exposing the accumulating results of an individual’s daily activities of collecting, planning, performing and re-organising (and attempting to combine these).
Over a number of weeks the project will explore the conflicts between different kinds of attempts — creative and neurotic — to control a space, reflecting the cumulative decisions and indecisions involved. Inspired by individuals and amateur obsessives who are driven to present whatever space is available to them as workshops, museums or public venues, the increasingly undomesticated space will host sound works, live performances and other events.
possible area is interested in creating immersive environments, exploring the creation of spaces within spaces, with a particular interest in scale and place. Recent installation-based projects have also developed a cumulative way of working, exploring and exposing DIY processes across installation, sound, moving image and visual works.
possible area is an ongoing project of visual work by J. K. Brook across graphics, moving image, installation and intervention. This work primarily is often closely related to live music and sound event production, as part of bad timing and other projects. Recurring themes are place, obsolete technology, breaching the boundaries of enclosed and public space and the mapping of spaces onto each other (and back onto themselves).
Recent activities include installation and cross-arts event production works at Aid & Abet and a DIY arts-centre venue installed within the front room of a small Cambridge terraced house.
