Two new architectural installations open today: MF-142 by Sarah Oppenheimer and Space Space by Yuko Shiraishi
On the third floor of Annely Juda Fine Art sits Sarah Oppenheimer’s latest work, MF-142. To contrast with the conventional right-angles of the gallery’s walls and ceilings, Oppenheimer has bisected the gallery with a massive diagonal plane with the same textures as the floor and walls. This plane becomes wall, ceiling or floor depending on the location of the viewer within the space.
Holes and apertures have been cut through the plane. These holes are trademarks of Oppenheimer’s work, providing cinematic glimpses and views of space physically removed from the viewer.
Also opening today is Space Space by Yuko Shiraishi. Space Space investigates the relationship between Japanese tradition and Western science by creating a ‘Space Elevator Japanese Tea Room’. The installation is set in a darkened room with lighting from beneath the tea house.
Installation Details: 17 September to 20 October 2009
Venue:Annely Juda Fine Art, 23 Dering Street, London, W1S 1AW
Opening Times: Monday to Friday, 10am - 6pm, Saturday 11am - 5pm
