Open Gallery is pleased to have our bespoke collection 'Anahita 2017' installed in The London Women's Clinic. 'Anahita' is a four and half hour group series containing work by Alex Bettler, Nina Danino, Tina Keane, Isabelle Inghilleri, Sanchita Islam, Hilary Lawson, Gabrielle Le Bayon, Mark Neslon and Alys Williams.
The series has been specifically curated for the London Women's Clinic. The title refers to Anahita, the ancient Persian Godess of water, fertility, and patroness of women. Presenting a series of luxuriant branches and compelling waterscapes from different locations around the world, this series embodies the fruitful enegry and fertilizing flow of water which brings life, growth and regeneration.
The London Women's Clinic were in need of a colourful, bright and high contrast nature close-up video paintings to compliment their classic and traditional surroundings, in the ground floor/reception area, leading to the upper floor. The work is visble to people entering the clinic, and going up and down the first floor of the building.
We installed video paintings by artists across a lightweight laser projector. Video painting is inherently a tranquil medium, and the careful selection of artwork presenting a series of luxuriant branches and compelling waterscapes from different locations around the world, this series embodies the fruitful enegry and fertilizing flow of water which brings life, growth and regeneration.
We mounted a light weight projector from an existing pole hanging above the staircase. We used a telescopic projector mount, with adjustable lengths and a truss clamp.
The video has been projected directly onto the centre of the wall, fitting the whole surface —without screens or framed supports. The wall has been painted in grey by TLWC.
