We are excited to announce that Tom Popes‘s Light Traps will be taking over the windows of Gazelli Art House in final Window Project for 2016 from 19th December until 8th January 2017 !
Royal College of Art graduate Tom Pope (b. 1986, U.K.) is the winner of the Gazelli Art House Winter 2016 Window Project, with his site specific interactive installation, ‘Light Traps’, which will be on display between 19th December 2016 – 8th January 2017.
Selected amongst applicants from various art institutions responding to an open call, Tom Pope is the fifth artist to display his work on the Gazelli Art House Window Project since its new concept – where MA/ Post-Graduate students and recent graduates are invited to display their works on the gallery’s frontage, providing an opportunity for emerging talents to present a body of work on a quarterly basis on the Dover Street gallery’s window space for the duration of 3 weeks.
A panel selection served as an independent committee comprising of art journalist Alastair Smart*, collector, curator and newly appointed fair director Kamiar Maleki,* and advisor Kate Bryan*. This quarter’s winner Tom Pope evokes a sense of playfulness and explores social engagement with a photographic installation where the public become active participants within the making process. The project, which stems from an installation he did for the Liverpool Biennial, aims to create a new visual dialogue between the gallery, its visitors and the photographic process.
