London’s first Lumiere light festival is continuing with Tim Etchells’ More Noise at Bloomberg SPACE until 12th March. Lumiere London, produced by Artichoke and supported by the Mayor of London and Bloomberg Philanthropies, transformed the city’s streets and buildings with 30 art installations, reaching an estimated 1 million people over four evenings in January.
As part of Lumiere London, Tim Etchells staged his latest exhibition at the Bloomberg SPACE gallery. Curated by Artichoke Director, Helen Marriage, Etchells’ More Noise features 14 scattered and interconnected neon phrases in different colours, presented at floor level. The work invokes the idea of sound, playing on Etchells’ interest in the relation between pattern, order, disorder, sense and nonsense. This new work is presented with two existing neon wall works Mirror Pieces and Let’s Pretend, which interact with and reflect the themes of the new piece. Bloomberg SPACE is dedicated to commissioning and exhibiting contemporary art, extending the company’s support of a wide rang of philanthropic programmes around the world
