The secret to many a great house is in the display of objects – something that Line Up, an exhibition at the newly refurbished Flow gallery, seeks to explore when it opens on the 20 March. It’s curated by stylist Sania Pell, whose blog gives some insight into her savvy on the subject. Pell has written various books and styled for all the great interiors magazines over the years. For this exhibition, she draws inspiration from Kettles Yard curator Jim Ede who pioneered the idea of curating as a way of life rather than something reserved only for high art in a gallery environment. Ede was intrigued by our relationship to art and craft in a domestic setting and Pell continues to explore his ideology for Line Up, with simple domestic scenes created using beautifully crafted pieces from artist’s such as Akiko Hirai, Jochem de Wit and Astrid Keller.
We’re particularly inspired by the straightforward palette, which somehow incorporates drama and contrast without erring far from black, white and grey.
