Measure has been working with Duncan on his ongoing Holy Week project since 58 Processions exhibition in 2008. Duncan's solo show Sbarbi's Arrow is SoundFjord's inaugural commission, Measure co-designed the installation with the artist and built the exhibition at the gallery.
Sbarbi's Arrow is the first major creative output of Whitley's study of the saeta flamenca, a form of flamenco prayer, sung to the religious images of the Catholic Easter processions in Andalucia. The exhibition has been commissioned to coincide with the movable feast of Lent and Easter.
Measure had a quiet 2012 but we gearing up for a busy 2013 and are currently working on a new project to be launched in Central London.
We will be writing a new newsletter to run quarterly which you can sign up for by joining our mailing list. The newsletter will contain news on Measure projects and highlights from our web archive.
Thems Please, Des Hughes.
Installed in the old newsagent A. E. Barrow on Chatsworth Road in Hackney the exhibition offers a unique glimpse at the interior of an old Victorian shop. The sculptures themselves merge into the fabric of the shop blurring fact and fiction together to create an alternative version of a lost reality; a surreal and often comic commentary on the monotony of the everyday.Read More
