Doorways are the physical symbol of the transition – of change – between the ‘now’ and the ‘next’, from ‘here’ to ‘there’; moving in, moving out, moving on. Familiar in ritual, religion, myth and literature, they have emotional power – they are the liminal space between two states of being; a transition that has to be negotiated before the ‘next’ can begin.

This exhibition invites artists to explore the symbolism and significance of doorways as the space between the ‘now’ and the ‘next’. Is a doorway full of the promise of new beginnings, arrivals, opportunities? Or laced with the fear of the unseen? Do open doorways suggest a refuge, an entrance or an exit? Life or death? Do closed doors represent protection or imprisonment? Does it matter what side you’re on?
