Today I visited the Dark Matters- Shadow, technology art at the Whitworth art Gallery- sad to say I was a little disappointed. Found it a little boring, with such a good subject matter I was hoping for more.
On the other hand there was one piece that blew me away! Still Life No.1 is a 3D structure from acrylic polymer forming shapes and figures displayed on a table, revolving around this table is light source that both feeds the installation on the table to give it a winter glow and forms moving shadows around the area that engulfs the viewer. This installations was made by a collective called Brass Art- are Chara Lewis, Kristin Mojsiewicz and Anneke Pettican, three artists based in Manchester and Glasgow. They have worked together since 1998.
