Otherwise known for his bold installations and sculptures using marketing and packaging materials, Leo Fitzmaurice has for several years collected âsculptural happenings', recorded on his mobile phone. As they accumulate they have become a diary of his visual acuity, a intriguing archive of the serendipitous alignments that can be discovered every day, and a resource for open interpretation by other people. He presents these images to the public for the first time at Standpoint, in an (by nature and intent) experimental and provisional format. The photographs are suggestive: an invitation to our curatorial eye, containing an captivating and un-finished openness difficult to achieve in more complex and developed installations.
The images are accompanied by several sculptural works, some site-specific to the gallery space.
This special two-day presentation is part of Leo's participation in the Standpoint Futures Development Residencies for Regional Artists program. It will include a talk at 6.30 by the artist on Thursday 24th, and an opportunity to meet and talk to Leo at any time in the 2 days.
The residency's chief aims are to provide high quality, individualized opportunities to develop an artist's practice and career, and to integrate London and the Regional UK art world to promote dialogue and interchange.
