“I had to make this exhibition different. That was the whole theme of the show. Being different, having a feeling of not fitting in. In my search for a definition of the term ‘Outcast’ I found that it is usually used to describe a group or person who has been casted out. By society or someone else. I have never been casted out and yet I identify with the feeling of being an outcast. The works in the show has been a search for an answer to this.” – Christiane Spangsberg

I have admired the work of Christiane Spangsberg for over two years now so when I found out her exhibition “Outcasts” was being shown in Shoreditch’s Oneroom Gallery, I knew that I’d have to make the time to visit.

I was in London on Saturday anyway as I had planned to visit Frida Kahlo: Making herself up at The Victoria and Albert Museum. I decided that I would dedicate the whole day to great company, self care and creative development. It ended up being a day that unexpectedly changed my life. After all, there is nothing better than spending the day being inspired by like minded people. In a roundabout way, it felt like a nod to having a little more belief in what I do and the way I chose to do it.

The theme of the exhibition is something that we all can relate to in some way or another but it ended up being so much more than that. The simplicity of the work just sung to me which as someone who can often find art overwhelming, felt really refreshing.

The exhibition space itself had an air of calm about it that you would perhaps get from sitting by the sea for a while or getting into bed after putting on crisp white fresh bedding. It was everything I love in a space. Flowers, lots of natural light, beautiful furniture and just all round really peaceful.

I learnt a lot more about how space has the ability to affect your mood and will most definitely be visiting again.
