The interior has tended to suggest, at least since the advent of modernity, that private realm removed from the hurly-burly of the public world. It is a useful fiction. The interior is a refuge indeed, but where is it, truly, these days? Mark Pimlott will talk about the interior, the condition of the interior, and the interiority of subjectivity. Along the way, he will talk about projective systems, their formation of subjects, their imagery and myths, and some possibilities for the public interior that may suggest individual and collective freedoms.
Mark Pimlott (1958) is a designer, artist, writer, and teacher. He is the author of 'Without and Within: Essays on Territory and the Interior' (2007); and 'The Public Interior as Idea and Project' (2016). His works include ‘World’, BBC Broadcasting House, London (2013); ‘La scala’, Aberystwyth (2003); and interiors of the Red House, London (2001; 2011, in collaboration with Tony Fretton architects). His practice is concerned with appearances, experience, meaning and reconciliations with time, and incorporates photography, art for public places, and design. He is Assistant Professor in the Chair of Interiors Buildings Cities at TU Delft.
