i-cabin is a project space, publishing house and author of projects. In 2009 i-cabin relocated its programme to a new space, which is a quarter acre of land on the western edge of England, 40 miles from the border with Wales. This move offers the opportunity to work with artists on projects of an entirely different scale and context. Now, with the piece of land, artists are able to take up residence both literally and ideologically. The physicality of that residency is an inevitable component. With this move, the programme of i-cabin has changed, but it is still based on the same core principles. These are: committed critical exchange and self-criticism, in which artist, gallery and viewer actively challenge each other in order to develop projects which set their sights beyond the realm of an inward facing gallery critique. i-cabin ventures outward towards an art which impacts upon the social architectures of a tangible culture and acknowledges the inevitable effects, within those structures, public or otherwise, of the production of works. The previous space in a former bookbinding factory at Clarendon Buildings will continue to function as a research space, office and studio.
