Giles Walker ‘The Last Supper’ in Pictures

After my first visit to see Giles Walker’s ‘The Last Supper’ I revisited with my camera to try and capture the atmosphere of the installation and space. 

Words from the press release:

Giles Walker‘s extraordinary Last Supper. A fully animated sculpture consisting of thirteen mechanical figures who interact around a table.
A year in the making, this remarkable work is simultaneously humorous and frightening. The Last Supper surpasses the audience’s initial interest in the robotic elements of the piece and draws us into the questions it poses and the all too human aspects it addresses. It promises to leave a lasting impression on those who have the opportunity to experience it.

In a pretty interesting get together, French artist JR has teamed up with Chinese artist Liu Bolin on a collaborative artwork in New York City. JR is known for his beautiful large scale works around the globe, while Liu Bolin is known for making himself disappear or make invisible on interesting backgrounds.

Insa – ‘Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection’

Posted in Art, Artists, Photography, Shows, Events & Venues with tags , , , , on March 29, 2012 by wallkandy

A new installation to be presented by INSA and open for one evening only.  I had the pleasure of being invited along to take a few snaps a few days before the opening.  The following words are from The London and Newcastle site

INSA’s latest installation work is his most obviously paradoxical to date. Having built the INSA brand reiterating issues of the female body and commodity fetishism, here, amongst a swirling cacophony of bikini clad women and chrome the audience is assured that ‘Self Reflection is greater than Self Projection’.

Conor Harrington – Dead Meat

For the last few months I’ve followed Conor Harrington as he has been preparing for his recently opened solo show ‘Dead Meat’ at Lazarides Rathbone gallery.  I love watching the painting process so being able to watch this show come together has been a true feast for the eyes.

After many months of working long hours and through some pretty damn cold days and a power cut the work was finished.  The show opened Thursday 01st March to heaving gallery and a queue at the door.  For more pictures of the work and the gallery space follow the link.
