Masterpiece London, 2018
TM Lighting collaborated for the second year with Masterpiece London as official ‘Art Lighting Partner’ at the capital’s leading cross-collecting fair showcasing works of fine art, design, furniture and jewellery – from antiquity to the present day. TM Lighting partnered as art lighting specialists across specific aspects of the fair which opens to the public from 28th June to 4th July 2018, including lighting a series of major art installations using TM Lighting’s exceptional LED products.
Below is an outline of the exhibits, spaces and installations to be lit by TM Lighting at Masterpiece London, 2018.
MASTERPIECE PRESENTS, the fair’s large-scale dedicated exhibition space that provides a platform for innovative, immersive works of art, will be supported again by TM Lighting. This year the large-scale space will showcase of a new body of work by Marina Abramović, Five Stages of Maya Dance, specially lit by TM Lighting to create atmosphere and drama. Presented by Factum Arte, in collaboration with Lisson Gallery, this set of five alabaster portraits of Abramović merge performance, light and sculpture. They have a hauntingly physical presence but, as viewers move around the pieces, they decompose into intricately carved ‘landscapes’ of alabaster.
Located in walkways throughout the fair, prominent pieces supported by TM Lighting include:
- A rare black marble Henry Moore sculpture, Reclining Figure: Curved dating from 1977, which is one of the artist’s seminal and unique carvings, brought by Landau Fine Art.
