... a sculptural artwork which functions as a, viewer operated, remotely controlled, miniature art gallery. It enables the viewer to explore its hidden contents and to view the results in the form of a projected live video on an adjacent wall...
In January, I collaborated with Graham Asker in placing my work to create a show within a show inside his aPanopticon - an artwork which Graham describes as:
The French Revolutionary calendar. Connecting (reconnecting?) with nature. Removing religion, saint's days and religious festivals from the calendar. Reassigning every day to a seasonal system of plants, animals, tools and produce.
Makes me think more about how I would represent my ideas for an 8-day week.
176 Prince of Wales Road, London NW5 3PT. Thursday-Sunday, 12-6pm
A former Methodist chapel houses the collection, and was built between 1867 and 1871. I am of course, obsessed by the inner room with this cupboard and fireplace combination.
This work on the gallery (except that terminology is confusing, so the Gallery calls it the mezzanine) was interesting. It looks very different in a 'white cube' setting - when I looked at images on the artist's group website And I think you read the work very differently too. As I understand it, the work was made in response to work with a prison.
Other work by Susskind - love this.
The show in the Lobby Space this week on 11th March, by myself and Louise Anderson. Installation including: screenprints on tissue and organza, digital prints, metal plates, laser-cut perspex, plaster, video projection, carpet and straw.
"One big theme is booze. In my favourite work, 2014’s Pub Crawl, 11 screens positioned on the floor along the walls of the gallery’s central corridor present jerky footage, shot by the artist while walking through empty streets in east London early on weekend mornings.During these lonesome strolls Marclay was on the lookout for half-empty pint and wine glasses or abandoned cans of lager, relics of revelry from the night before. When he chanced upon one, he would proceed to strike, tap, kick or roll it, in order to summon a series of tinkling, percussive noises. This creates an eerie, random soundtrack for the exhibition: an off-kilter drunk’s concerto, if you like, with its own bleary, kinetic thrust.
Pub Crawl evokes the show’s other big theme: the relationship between images and sound. Surround Sounds (2014) is a room-sized animation with a retro feel, in which onomatopoeic words from the pages of vintage comic books are projected across the walls and cascade with shimmering intensity..." - (Alistair Sooke, The Telegraph)
7 artists (6 if you count Sarah & Louise Wilson together) curated areas in the Hayward Gallery. Interesting to see the effect of different curation and presentation within one experience. I liked the room by Richard Wentworth. I liked the collection of work - including Hepworth, Tony Cragg and Moore. But in particular I liked the presentation of the collection of books - face down on high glass shelves (as seen in shadow above the doors in the image below)
"Roger Hiorns’s room unpacks a very different archive; his obsessive-compulsive collating of documents relating to mad cow disease " (Guardian) - I didn't like this as a presentation. In a way he is making an interesting point "There is a curious “analogue” quality to the spread of this archetypal scare story – all carbon-paper memos and typewritten folders. Virus stories had not yet become fully viral." (Guardian). But it makes for a very dull room.
