Beginning from Tuesday 1 October the lower gallery will contain a display of drawings from the archive of celebrated Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa (1919 - 2013), in collaboration with the Geoffrey Bawa Trust.

About

Singh has long been fascinated by Bawa's particular style of modernism, tailored as it was to the specific environment of South Asia and Southeast Asia. In celebration of the centenary of Bawa's birth the artist has also produced a book object entitled Box 507 and during the week of the Frieze Art Fair (1 - 5 October) Singh will be in residence at the gallery selling this work. Box 507 takes the form of 30 unbound image cards of Bawa's interiors. The piece is in an edition of 360 and is available only in its exhibition format, it is to be acquired directly off the wall. In this way the exhibition disappears over time and when the boxes are sold, the edition and the exhibition are over.
