Rex Henry an architect and Intentist is having an exhibition at the Collyer Bristow Gallery in Holborn from 6pm Wednesday the 26th May.
The urban landscape is one of fragmented and diverse visions. Those of town planners, architects, engineers overlaid with the messy reality of human interaction and use. In this exhibition we look at the work of twelve artists whose work involves architecture. Each artist in the exhibition employs architectural motifs or subject matter in their works. From the sculptural structures of the collaborative team of artist and architect, Henry Seaton (Graham Seaton and Rex Henry) to the fantastical 'Empire' of 'oozing site-specific creations' by artist Sally Barker; this exhibition covers the clean lines and blocks of Utopian dreams alongside the decorative, lyrical, fanciful and absurd. The exhibition considers how central or otherwise architecture is to each artist's practice and whether architectural language is a significant and necessary player in the creative process.
The exhibition is part of the London Festival of Architecture 2010 ( www.lfa2010.org) .
