Rosie Morris: Circles are Slices of Spheres: Laing Art Gallery
For her first solo exhibition in a UK public institution, Rosie Morris will transform one of the Laing’s original Edwardian galleries with an ambitious architectural installation, entitledCircles are Slices of Spheres.
Two monumental paintings envelop the viewer in a vast expanse of subtle colours and illusionistic shadows, highlighting the intricate architectural detailing of the gallery itself.
The project is a culmination of Morris’ interest in drawing attention to the ‘here and now’ through her large-scale work. The exhibition is accompanied by a sound commission and performative script, both of which play on ideas of the sublime and hushed atmosphere associated with viewing art.
