Indirect Sunlight - Laura Aldridge & James Rigler - Thursday 19 July 2018
Indirect Sunlight, an immersive sculptural garden installation by Glasgow based artists Laura Aldridge and James Rigler. From 13 July – 23 September, Indirect Sunlight, will transform NOW Gallery into a rural retreat, a space for contemplation away from the hustle and bustle of the capital. The summer exhibition will draw nature inside, inviting visitors to discover and interact with the gallery space like never before.
Blurring the boundary between indoors and outdoors, Indirect Sunlight will see NOW Gallery populated with a series of playful sculptures. Arched forms derived from monastery cloisters and clipped topiary will provide a lightweight modular structure from which colourful and patterned printed fabric will hang. These arches will be carefully placed throughout the space and visitors will be encouraged to move freely through the sculptures, causing the fabric to respond to their movement. Small, golden ceramic elements will dot the arched structures like fruits or budding blossom and as visitors venture further, a ceramic water fountain will be revealed.
The dreamlike quality of the fountain will be in opposition to a series of functional benches and work tables installed throughout the exhibition. These will house materials for visitors to evolve the installation – to pot up plants, to sow seeds and to place their seedlings within the landscape of the ‘garden’. The activity of planting will bring a new dimension to the gallery, transforming the space into an inside garden where visitors will be able to contribute to the metaphorical garden space with its fluttering arches and ceramic objects.
