COMMA - A dynamic new series of monthly commissions
COMMA 24 Boyd Webb Widely considered as a pioneer of the constructed photographic image, Boyd Webb has been commissioned to create a pair of large-scale images in response to the voluminous front gallery. Easily viewed from the street the two new huge photographic works pasted flat against the gallery walls create a connection linking the interior of the gallery to the public square beyond. For COMMA, Webb has chosen not to create fantastical tableaux, but rather to focus his lens on two separate bizarre yet mesmerizing images.
COMMA 25 Suchan Kinoshita Kinoshita's work engages visitors with objects and architecture, subtly directing their movements through space and involving them physically and emotionally in her all-encompassing staged environments. For COMMA, Kinoshita has transformed the rear gallery into one of her theatrical sets. The usual surface of the gallery has disappeared under a new covering of white peg board, whilst the balcony is draped with a series of floating curtains and projection screens for her short videos documenting a number of performances realised in the offices of Bloomberg LP.
