An exhibition built on the suggestive power of the hotel room, the works, and their staging, chart the ease with which people slip into different personas once they inhabit temporary spaces. As an in-between space that highlights the tensions between individuals in different settings, or changing moods evoked by the passing of time, the hotel room frequently implies the transitory nature of contemporary life.

Occupants pass their time in a liminal state, one of ambiguous seclusion and privacy, and, as such, spaces like these are not easily defined and are where anything can happen.
