About

Preview: Friday 24 June 7-9pm with special performance by the band GIORGIO SADOTTI

Seduced by the distinctive architecture of the former Lambeth Ragged School and its contemporary history, artists Jane Mulfinger and Graham Budgett travel from California for their latest collaboration commissioned by Beaconsfield Gallery Vauxhall. They write:

‘The name Beaconsfield itself suggests a play or display of light.

Entering the main space, the Barthesian punctum is not subtle at all. There’s a small circular window high up in the back wall. An aperture. This majestic Beaconsfield chamber is a Camera Obscura, a room with an unobserved Weltanschauung.

Seeking display, disparate moving images of the exterior environs constantly invert through this small window, only to be lost in a flood of light from the three vast neo-classical arcade windows opposite.

Blacking-out and screening the arcade could reveal a fuzzy, animated view of the exterior scene cast into the interior. But that’s a bit like inverse puritanical iconoclasm, wrecking the arcade’s luminous elegance, vandalising the Latin Fenster for an Owl Hole, a Saxon Windauge…’ 

Mulfinger & Budgett’s site-specific installation runs over the summer, empowering a single viewer’s experience of the world from a particular point of view through various electronic and architectural devices.

To accompany Windauge, GIORGIO SADOTTI SOUND LIKES I (A COMPOSING) will be installed in the Arch space, until 4 September and to open the exhibition, the band of the same name GIORGIO SADOTTI will make a special performance. Line up: Giorgio Sadotti, Mary George, Leda Sadotti and Jamie Kirkbride.
