you have a place here critiques politics of place and gallery spaces, specifically considering the lack of affordable and accessible exhibition space for young, emerging or underrepresented artist. This installation aims to encourage viewers to feel a sense of belonging and comfort in the place – confirming that all artists, viewers, participants, curators and community members have a stake in the gallery and art “world”. The installation invites viewers to engage with the space while feeling comfortable and accepted in an often canonical and statured place.
