“‘On The Waltzers’, an interactive and immersive arts installation created by artist and curator duo ELLSQUARED that will open Convenience Gallery’s 2024 TTITG program.
The artists evoke nostalgia for the British everyday experience, from a mini golf course, now to a fun fair. The viewers are invited to participate in a series of classic fair games for the chance to win hand-crafted prizes made by the artists with the intention of exploring how exhibitions can be more accessible and how  the audience can obtain artwork through play.
From tufted teddy bears to felt cigarettes, a homage to Hull Fair, ‘On The Waltzers’  implores the viewer to not only engage with the installation but to become a part of the work itself.

This is ELLSQUARED’s first exhibition of 2024 and will once again subvert the white cube gallery experience and how a sense of levity and tongue-in-cheek approach to their respective practices elevate not only the craft and ‘everyday’ dialogue they hold dearly, but also what is considered high and low art and how they play with the viewer within their work.”

This Exhibition is part of our new Arts and culture programme: ‘The Town Is The Gallery’
