A rubber light with silicone hairs and a lampshade made from dripping paint are two of the installations which will be lighting up Siobhan Davies Studios.
Art meets product design in Lights On, a new exhibition featuring the work of Henny van Nistelrooy and five other emerging designers who have very different approaches: Eelko Moorer, Freddie Yauner, Jesse Visser, Jordi Canudas and Mathias Hahn.
Light offers artists and designers a material of unmatched versatility and evocative power. In this exhibition light comes to the fore, showing its great potential in shaping perceptions of space and wellbeing.
The installation will take full advantage of the darkness of the winter days, demonstrating how light can bring happiness and warmth in the middle of winter. The intervention also highlights how, by combining traditional weaving craft techniques with the latest digital technology and intelligent design, it is possible to create alternative light sources to conventional lamp shades.
Live performance during Private View on 20 January Chocochandelier, by Spanish designer Jordi Canudas is a piece that transgresses any practicality to become both an installation and live performance. The chandelier is made up of suspended chocolate bars around a large circle containing strong light bulbs. The chocolate melts into a bowl placed underneath inviting the audience to a chocolate feast.
