Motion Sickness Project Space

Motion Sickness Project Space is a contemporary art space situated in the Lion Yard Shopping Centre in Cambridge. The space was launched in 2019 with the aim of exhibiting and supporting emerging artists from all over the UK, particularly those who are marginalised within the art world.

Motion Sickness

Formed by Denise Kehoe, Eleanor Breeze and Arabella Hilfiker, Motion Sickness is a collaborative examination of their position as products of millennial ephemera. Motion sickness, by definition, is caused by a disparity between perceptual movement and sense of movement. This disorientation is mirrored by Kehoe, Breeze and Hilfiker’s status in life in contrast to where society dictates they should be. Thus, the collective aim to explore and satirise society’s view of ‘millennialhood’. As well as making work together, the collective also founded Motion Sickness Project Space.

ABOUT

Eleanor Breeze’s paintings explore social traditions that she finds in family photo albums. Weddings, christenings and funerals often feature in her work, along with the associated British food such as celebration cakes, tea and buffets. Layered imagery hints at a narrative but ultimately, the paintings remain ambiguous, making reference to something lost or just out of reach.The use of personal photos, some of which belong to the artist’s own family, and some of which are found, adds a layer of uncertainty to the work. As the audience, we are invited to participate in the ceremony, but we don’t know if the invitation is Breeze’s to give.
