For her solo exhibition one hundred and eighty-nine at 303 Projects, Alice Wilson presents a work that finds a moment of stasis in the gallery space. Unsure of itself before it arrived and unsure of where it will go next.

one hundred and eighty-nine, is a measurement of sorts, an arbitrary one really, a number that fits together well, 1+8, 9-1 The exhibition is accompanied by a text-work that is constructed using the first line from the 189th page of each book in Wilson’s studio.

Wilson’s practice spans various mediums, working in both 2D and 3D. Her ‘go to’ is often construction timber, wood of various kinds but predominantly the wood that we build with, timber that has been processed and sawn ready for use, the stuff that arrives on a flatbed truck.

Wilson rejects the specificity of a particular form or site. Instead, she is interested in exploring ideas of home and space. It is not a final representation that she works towards, but through the act of construction she is able to understand better what the fundamental meaning of the material is for her. None of the material Wilson uses is new; the nails, paint, hinges and splinters having lost their original function. However, rather than memorialising their histories, Wilson explores new ways of combining and framing her material to push it towards unfamiliarity. Ben Zombory-Moldovan, 2021
