Safety Curtain is a site-responsive work produced for LOW PROFILE’s solo exhibition ‘Against All Odds‘ at Exeter Phoenix (2013).

Encountered immediately upon entering the building, Safety Curtain is a reassuring homage to the theatrical fire curtain, an early cultural health & safety measure (first called into use in response to a fire that destroyed Exeter’s Theatre Royal with great loss of life in 1887). By gently diverting visitors from their usual path through the building, it encourages a sense of heightened awareness of their surroundings.

Safety Curtain is produced with the support of the Artsadmin Bursary Programme.
