Jemima Burrill has curated five design exhibitions at NOW Gallery including the current installation, Slices of Time by Emmanuelle Moureaux, last year The Mouse and his Child by Studio Morison, and before that The People’s Brick Company by Something and Son, Alex Chinneck’s Straight Jacket Star Jumps and Shade by Simon Heijdens.
These exhibitions are an opportunity for designers to have a space to think outside of the box, to come up with an interactive installation which draws in visitors to do something unusual within the gallery. From Simon Heijdin’s reactive window wrap that created moving shade in the gallery to Something and Son which gave visitors the opportunity to make a brick, be involved in the process of casting the brick and then firing it, in a wood fired kiln. Each exhibition has a very different way of creating a significant moment at NOW Gallery.
This talk will look at the inspiration behind these design shows, contextualise by looking at the exhibitions from previous years and focus on the latest installation by Emmanuelle Moureaux, and the process of how the 168,000 numbers were shipped from Japan and installed in the gallery.
Questions during or after the talk? We will be hosting a Q&A 8pm – 9pm via Instagram.
