Probing the politics and spatial logic of architecture, Setting Out 2 (2020) employs neon builders line, nylon string that is designed to mark long straight lines and used in construction to transfer architectural drawings onto the ground. Transporting what is conventionally on a horizontal plane to the vertical plane of the wall, the strings form a line drawing whose composition is determined by the floor plan of Tallentire’s home. Paper markers on the string demarcate lengths that correspond to the circumference of different rooms in the home, such as the kitchen and bedrooms, indexing the spatial logic of the house.

Irish artist Anne Tallentire studied Fine Art Media at the Slade School of Art. Often documenting the actions of both herself and others, her work is concerned with interrogating the apparatus of mapping and naming, and the relationship between the specific and the general, social control and urban occupations. A solo exhibition of Tallentire’s work took place in IMMA in 2010. She is currently a Professor of Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London.View Artist
