At One Remove was the first contemporary group show to be mounted in the Galleries of the Henry Moore Institute. It brought together a large number of diverse works by contemporary artists from Britiain and abroad. Together the works - drawings, diagrams, photos, projections, casts, models and moulds - could be read as an 'essay' which looked at how works with little material substance represent 'sculpture' in the way they take the viewer outside themselves into a space that is somehow other, elsewhere or at one remove. Art is perhaps always about translation, and about the gap between the original and the 'reproduction', but this selection sought to pin down more particularly that space in-between, in which, it is suggested, the viewers imagination can live. A number of the works were thus chosen for thier explicit invitiation to 'another place' in physical terms, while others suggest the special terrain of the mental space. Works which have swapped their scales or terms of reference with those of their sources propose an active space which resides somewhere between the two. Though this space is intimated by the works in the exhibition, it will, perforce, always remain inaccessible. In their different ways, all the selected works make reference to this 'somewhere else'.
