We are thrilled to be the lighting partner at the inaugural Eye of the Collector, at Two Temple Place, London. Our team of art lighting specialists have individually illuminated more than 200 artworks from 30 dealers exhibiting art and design covering 6,000 years of art history. The works will be displayed throughout the 19th century neo-Gothic mansion, as if displayed in a collector’s home. This entirely original fair concept has been conceptualised by Nazy Vassegh, former Director of Masterpiece London, and is designed to evoke a single collector’s personal collection and promises thought provoking dialogues, lines of influence and aesthetically beautiful combinations. The small-scale, time-controlled nature of the fair is perfect for this period when the art world is gradually reopening.

This novel fair concept required an expert art lighting solution and our team of art lighting specialists installed and focussed TM GalleryOneThirty spotlights to individually light all works on display, giving each piece the attention it deserves in order to look its best. Pieces range from ancient sculpture to modern painting to contemporary craft, and every spotlight has been set to a colour temperature of 3000K, the ideal level for art fair lighting as it can be used for diverse types of artworks equally effectively. The interchangeable lenses equipped within each light allows for quick set up and focussing which we have completed ahead of the fair’s opening later this week. We utilised our experience working within leading international art fairs and top UK museums to create the lighting for Eye of the Collector, successfully converting the beautiful interiors of Two Temple Place into an art fair space like no other. We encourage you all to visit the fair when it opens later this week.
