West Space is an artist-run non-profit organisation that has been running in Melbourne since 1993. Their current space is one of the largest galleries in the Melbourne CBD and plays host to an ever-revolving list of local and international artists. West Space is currently exhibiting a bunch of amazing video artists, as well as Eugenia Lim’s Hikikomori Project, where she explores the Japanese phenomenon of Hikikomori or shut-in syndrome by living in a bedroom style installation and only connecting with the outside world via the internet and social networking.
