Castor Projects, London
An installation of wallpaper, lighting and sculpture.
Three coin activated devices, reminiscent of amusement park arcades, with pre-recorded sounds and independent movements perform on demand. These sculptures, built using the mechanics and electrical components of children’s rides, are activated using 20p coins that are littered throughout the gallery on the darkened floor. Glossy skins of paint, crusting’s of aggregates, or powdered flock give the work a colourful pop status, a chameleon appearance and an almost edible quality that is informed by our global language of consumption.
Dystopian melodies composed using samples taken from food preparation present an eerie scenario as they play out in an artificial dusk. Suspended above from a black ceiling and amongst the subdued lighting is a constellation of bronze cast onion rings. Almost within reach like prizes at a fair, these function as an artist’s edition, key rings will be cut down cut down when purchased. Concrete ‘trunk lamps’ project from the gallery floor, offering limited lighting against a pale pink wallpaper that is made using images of processed meats and punctuated with islands of white fat.
