“intangible space” exhibition in Hong Kong

12 May 2016 - 30 June 2016

Located in Hong Kong, Puerta Roja Gallery shows for the first time in Asia the bamboo sculptures by Laurent Martin "Lo". This exhibition lies within the framework of the activities for "Le French May", one of the largest cultural events in Asia, an iconic part of Hong Kong´s cultural scene. Opening a dialogue between the works of digital artist Miguel Chevalier and bamboo sculptor, Laurent Martin “Lo”, Puerta Roja explores the ways in which different artistic processes effect viewer’s perception of ‘Intangible Space’. Using a wide array of artistic mediums; projection, digital print, sculpture, and mobiles from both artists, Puerta Roja investigate new contrasts and negations of space imposed by the digital world, between moving sculptures and the modern and less tangible world we live in. In his artistic work, Laurent Marin “Lo” creates an inner space of tensions and curves. The strings, counterweights and plays of balance and equilibrium, generate a pulsating field in the three-dimensional structure and its movement. The projected shadows, an essential component to the work, offer us it’s two-dimensional depiction. And it is the dialogue between both that creates a fourth dimension: the intangible space, the emptiness that exists between object and its reflection, the mental place between reality and its representation. The spirituality and sensuality of the bamboo feed into this mental place of instinctual perception. The viewer contemplating the sculptures feels the symbolic and strong emotional charge: harmony, equilibrium, energy. It is intuitive. It is the universe where vibrations inhabit and energy is created.

BLACK GEORGIANS: The Shock of the Familiar at Black Cultural Archives

16 November 2015 - 9 June 2016

Black Cultural Archives, 1 Windrush Square, Brixton, London SW2 1EF Imagining the Georgian period awakens images from Jane Austen’s parlour to Hogarth’s Gin Lane. Black Cultural Archives’ new exhibition Black Georgians: The Shock of the Familiar takes you on a journey a long way from these quintessential English images. This new exhibition interrogates the seams between the all-too-often prettified costume period dramas and the very different existance of hardship, grime, disease, and violence that was the reality for many. This exhibition will reveal the everyday lives of Black people during the Georgian period (1714-1830). It will offer a rich array of historical evidence and archival materials that present a surprising, sometimes shocking, and inspiring picture of Georgian Britain. http://bcaheritage.org.uk/programme/exhibitions/black-georgians-the-shock-of-the-familiar/ Christy Symington's portrait sculpture of 'Olaudah Equiano - African, slave, author, abolitionist' features in the exhibition. http://www.christysymington.com

“Flight of the Langoustine”

14 July 2015 - 1 January 2020

"Flight of the Langoustine" Bronze & Steel / Public Realm. Pierre Diamantopoulo MRBS. One of three winning sculptures awarded a place on the forthcoming Hove Plinth. Each sculpture will be taking its turn on the Plinth on the Hove Seafront Promenade for a period of 12 - 18 months, then will be allocated a permanent site in Hove and Brighton. This will be an ongoing programme of sculptures, on a similar basis to The Forth Plinth at Trafalgar Square. Maquettes have already been commissioned and fund-raising has started with a view to installing sculptures from Spring 2017. “Flight of the Langoustine” was inspired after a bit of beach-combing. A storm had deposited a mangled lobster pot yards from my (first) studio under the arches in Brighton. This washed-up object had been a means of escape for the lobsters and this translated itself into a human story of exodus and release – a dash for freedom."

Golden Rain, Michael Petry, FRBS

26 April 2013 - 31 December 2016

This large scale mirrored glass installation has just been given by Donna MacMillan to the Palm Springs Art Museum for their permanent collection. It consists of 100 large sealed bottles suspended down 3 floors in their main entrance to the collection. Each bottle contain a work/message by another artist who I invited to participate in the original project commissioned by Ha gamle prestegard for Stavanger 2008 - when it was European City of Culture. The work was originally installed in a 6 story lighthouse and recalls the classical story of Zeus and Danae, where in order to have her he turns himself into a shower of gold.
