I recommend….Mat Collishaw at Blain/Southern Gallery
this show contains an extraordinary 3d zoetrope sculpture that is perfect preparation before Paul Tarrago’s screening seminar on ‘the single frame’
4 Hanover Square
London W1S 1BP
Collishaw worked with evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller – whose theory is that the origins of art stem from natural instincts of courtship and reproduction – to produce the title work and centrepiece of the exhibition. The Centrifugal Soul is a sculpture in the form of a zoetrope, a pre-film animation device that produces the illusion of motion through rapid rotation and stroboscopic light.
In The Centrifugal Soul, Mat Collishaw’s exhibition at Blain|Southern, the artist presents new sculpture, installation and paintings. Drawing on various forms of illusion, the exhibition explores ideas of superficial truth and the erosive effect of our primal urges for visual supremacy.
