Gallery 46 in Whitechapel is our new sister gallery to be used as Londonewcastle Project Space. The new space, established through the partnership of Martin J Tickner and Sean McLusky and Fruitmachine founders, Martin Bell & Wai Hung Young breaks fresh ground for the open-source, non-conformist curatorial approach Tickner and McLusky employed at their (rightly) notorious MEN Gallery, in Shoreditch.Housed in a pair of newly renovated Georgian houses in the grounds of Whitechapel Hospital, GALLERY 46 is set over 3 floors and 8 rooms and is a kaleidoscopic addition to Whitechapel’s burgeoning gallery scene and close by its artistic...→

*Sense of Wonderment* is lighting sculptor Joss Newberry's first solo exhibition in response to a perceived dearth of creativity in the burgeoning lighting industry now dominated by LED. A practitioner in lighting design and commercial product design Joss spends his working life addressing market needs and opportunities for innovation, occupying a unique position between market delivery and engineering practicality.
The galleries will house 18 new lighting installations, all powered by LED and all made specifically for this exhibition. The blended theme of magic and sculptural beauty runs through the 4 galleries. Starting in the lobby gallery with 3 magic pieces that demand the viewer to think about how each piece can function. Moving to galleries 2 and 3 the viewer will see the sculptural theme in the mainly suspended luminaires. Each individual form designed to meet the desire for dynamic sculpture using edge-lit panels and complex ribbon forms with embedded tape LEDs. In the final gallery we return to magic with individual pieces designed to entertain, confound and instill a sense of wonderment.
The journey back to the first gallery will repeat the message of the exhibition, that magic exists in sculptural form and sculpture itself can be magical.
