LONDON.- British artist Tom Lovelace works at the intersection of photography, sculpture and performance to create multi-layered, site-specific installations. In this solo exhibition at Flowers Gallery, Lovelace presents a new body of work focusing on conceptual ideas of ‘theatre’, to explore spaces and encounters where the real, imagined and performed converge and intertwine.

Interval brings together several of Lovelace’s most recent Assembly Works, an ongoing series of assemblages centred around photography and, significantly, involving elements of bodily intervention. The exhibition discreetly explores the interstices of the gallery, working inbetween the hidden and public aspects of its internal architecture.

Influenced by Poor Theatre, a concept defined by Polish Director Jerzy Grotowski, which was characterized by a minimal use of staging and props, Lovelace creates uncommon objects, images and experiences from mundane and commonplace materials, using utilitarian fabrics found in public spaces, workshop off-cuts and industrial apparatus.

Structures built into the interior of the gallery appear within the photographs, uniting the image with its surrounding architecture and blurring the boundaries between the ephemeral and the permanent, the imagined and the real. Using drapery, false floors and jib (secret) doors as theatrical mechanisms to conceal and reveal, Lovelace invites the viewer to move between the edges and the centre of the action, generating a sense of theatre within the everyday.

Tom Lovelace lives and works in London. He studied Photography at the Arts University Bournemouth, receiving First Class Honours before studying Art History at Goldsmiths College, University of London. Recent exhibitions include My London, Copeland Gallery (London, 2018); On the Heights, Yorkshire Sculpture Park (Wakefield, 2017); On Board, Crispr (Bogota, 2017); The High Low Show, Laure Genillard (London, 2017); Tipping Point, Alma Zevi Gallery (Venice, 2016); Groundwork, The New Art Centre (Salisbury, 2015); Mirage Valley, Lendi Projects (Switzerland, 2015); To Camera, Golden Thread Gallery (Belfast, 2015); Against Nature, Photo50, London Art Fair (London, 2015); Project 05, Contemporary Art Society (London, 2014); Sweep, Victoria and Albert Museum (London, 2014); In Preparation for Arles, Les Rencontres d’Arles (France, 2013) and Work Starts Here, Son Gallery (London, 2012). Lovelace has previously exhibited at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol; ICA, London; Oriel Davies Gallery, Newtown, Wales; and Karst, Plymouth.

Residencies include Yorkshire Sculpture Park (UK, 2017), Allegra Projects (Switzerland, 2017), Lendi Projects, (Switzerland, 2015), European Capital of Culture, (Denmark, 2013); and the Anna Mahler International Foundation, (Italy, 2012). His self-published books, Work Starts Here (2013) and This Way Up (2016) are held in the Tate Artist Book Collection. Lovelace has previously been nominated for the Foam Paul Huf Award; Deutsche Brse Photography Foundation Prize; Prix Pictet Award; and the Infinity Award (International Center of Photography, New York).
