FREERANGE / Roehampton University graduate show 2011

Although a bit separate from the main exhibition hall Roehampton occupied an interesting and intimate space with talented Sam Ray with her cinematic identity project ‘Gold and Domesticated’ in the front wall. There was a bar with drinks and snacks, with students actively welcoming incoming guests with postcards and free brochures. The back of the exhibition space was reserved for Sarah Lias with her lightbox mounted project 'In Eis Errabant Umbrae/In These Place Shadows Wandered’ photographed in unoccupied houses as well as a sexy fashion film and a project discoursing the relationship between sound and image.
All in all, the exhibition was a success giving closure to the 13 students’ projects and the 3 years they have been studying at Roehampton.
