This gallery storefront becomes the physically restricted EXTERIOR face, INHABITING/INHIBITING; facing a localized pedestrian and automobile trafficked street. The gallery interior is TEXTING, somewhat ambiguously, a globalized political CONTENTION in the Western European world, to the Anglo-American European Western world. The gallery’s INTERIOR is the project of an immigrant from Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies, currently residing and laboring in New York. The INTERIOR of the gallery space of NLHspace is an ongoing TEXTING and CASTING of metaphorical SHADOWS, for a month to the EXTERIOR bodies, cars and landscape of an urban Copenhagen street life. NLHspace’s INTERIOR WHITENESS, is presently TRAVERSED by REMINDERS/REMAINDERS of this “third world” immigrant, that once resided and labored in Denmark in the mid 1980’s.
