AboutTomas Chaffe will present Sometimes Artists Work Here a new artwork, commissioned by Trade gallery.
The work comprises a vinyl banner, often seen on temporary shops and businesses (of which there are many in the area), a photograph and postcard all containing the same slogan. The temporary and make-do feel of the banner neatly complements the buildings uncertain future.
Reflecting on both the physical location of the gallery, on a busy main road in the heart of a redevelopment zone and the site of the gallery within a cultural complex of artists studios - Sometimes Artists Work Here is an unforgiving take on the state of affairs of the gallery and building.
Recent exhibitions include - Saturday, Sunday art fair, Berlin - A Strangers Window, Nottingham Castle Museum and Art Gallery - Gallery, Galerie, Galleria, Norma Mangione, Turin and Present Future, Artissima 16, Turin
