The lacuna, or lexical gap, represents a gap in translation, a place where multiple meanings are applied, where meanings shift and new interpretations can be made.
ArtLacuna is an artist-led space established in May 2013, located in an old coroner's office near Clapham Junction. It accommodates artist studios, a residency and research program, as well as project and exhibition space.

“This is how space begins, with words only, signs traced on the blank page.”
– Georges Perec
Notes on Navigating Space is a residency, exhibition and artists walk delivered by Taryn Edmonds and Rosie Morris, taking place in ArtLacuna, Battersea, London.
The artist’s collaborative process explores architectural space and urban environments, playfully mirroring elements such as construction with origami, pedestrian movement with performance and architectural design with theatre staging.
The artists will spend a week as residents in ArtLacuna’s project space, exploring the strata of space from the micro to the macro via a series of scored walks and exercises. By referencing literary texts that offer a variety of perspectives on how spatial experience is perceived and mediated, the work searches for ways to navigate and think differently about familiar spaces.
Drawing from discussions around literary and filmic influences, the artists have created a short film acting as a trailer for their residential activities in the gallery and surrounding area. The film, Unfolding Architecture, will be exhibited alongside work developed throughout the residency.
