Studio 14 designed ‘Tables’ are now in public use at the Grand Parade Gallery. Commissioned by Ben Roberts, the Artistic Director of Brighton CCA, the design and production of the ‘tables’ and a ‘bookshelf’ developed over several weeks, with invaluable input from Hannah Millett, Ade Krumins, and the Technical team at Mithras House.
The ‘Tables’ in fact four square tables that may be used in many different configurations, built from slate grey solid core mdf are primarily intended to facilitate ‘Communal’ – a unique series of events and presentations from artists, community groups, academics and curators.’ ‘Communal’ runs until 12th May. The tables occupy the space of the Grand Parade north gallery where the windows have been transformed by the installation of Fiona Grady’s ‘Spectra Waves’ – a work of light and colour…. The title of the piece references both the physical form of the work itself and the splitting of light required to make colour visible.
Also exhibited at Grand Parade, in the south gallery, is ‘The Tent’ by Kannan Arunasalam; an installation film work that focuses on some of the wives and mothers of the disappeared in northern Sri Lanka at the end of the civil war in 2009 who are campaigning for information on the fate of their loved ones.
These exhibitions prelude the forthcoming launch of what is to become the Brighton Centre for Contemporary Art.
