Introduction to Gnomon, a site specific work in the Stuart Hall Library

About

On Thursday 4 February at 6:30pm artist Ansuman Biswas introduces his new commission in the context of the architecture of Rivington Place. Iniva presents artist Ansuman Biswas's Gnomon, a site-specific installation in Rivington Place's Stuart Hall Library. The work responds to the unique architecture of the building and sits nestled within the Library's window alcoves. Shadow forms subtly respond to the breath and heat of the readers who animate the space. The absences of light make the flow of information and life of the building visible. The artist has imagined the building as an observatory. Many of the first buildings were tools for understanding the cosmos; Stonehenge, Jantar Mantar and Macchu Picchu were designed to locate one-self in the heavens. They stood amongst constantly changing angles of light, caught in the intersection of the human and the more-than-human environment. Similarly, Rivington Place was designed in relation to the sun.
