Emma Neuberg’s latest installation is open to the public Summer 2018 at Aldgate Tower in East London (opposite Whitechapel Gallery). Curated by Saff Williams, the work is designed to fill a stunning white and glass reception area.
Originally commissioned by Plymouth Gallery to create an austere and weighted installation full of largesse, authoritarianism and loss, here Drapes is reconfigured to hang above the audience as if merely signalling the original weight and claustrophobia of the original installation. The result is a powerful sign of emotion and nature in an otherwise stark, urban location.
Curator Saff Williams writes of Neuberg’s installation:
“Drapes is an immersive forest of twenty fabric folds patterned with brightly bold and textured foliage, bringing the outside world in. Totems to the natural world, this installation subtly breathes in the space as the geometric artworks softly flutter in the breeze and move the viewer’s eye from the artworks’ surface to their abstracted depths.”
