New Art Exchange Open 2022

Thursday, 09 June 2022 16:28 Published in Group Exhibitions

Light Wedge, 2018 – present
Two glass holographic plates (drawings), physical wooden wedge.

We intrinsically ‘understand’ how drawings in our world function.  They are stable and attached to their picture plane.  What happens when that drawing is moved off the surface, and what does it become? It is neither a drawing, a photograph, or physical object.

In Light Wedge, a ‘drawn’ representation of a wooden wedge occupies a ‘place’ between the glass ‘picture’ surface and the observer. The light in the holograms is from 2018, when the drawings were recorded. Light from the physical wedge is from 2022 (or whenever the installation is viewed).


Light Wedge was selected from over 300 entries for inclusion in the 2022 New Art Exchange Open exhibition.

Floor installation

This curated exhibition coincided with the 11th International Symposium on Display Holography, held at the University of Aviero and Light Wedge was shown in two versions.

The initial floor installation incorporated two plates (Plate 1, 49 x 34 x 1 cm, Plate 2, 34.5 x 31, 1 cm) and physical wooden wedge which was displayed for the duration of the symposium.  For the remainder of the exhibition (until September 30th) a single plate (49 x 34 x 1 cm) lifted slightly from the gallery floor by the wooden wedge, was shown.

 Single version on show until 30th September.


Light Wedge has also been installed at the New Art Exchange Open 2022 exhibition.

Gallery View on one of the two floors of exhibition space.

A new work by Andrew Pepper was presented as part of the exhibition which included the floor installation Light Wedge 2018.

The initial installation was made up of two glass holographic plates, one supported by a wooden wedge and the other by the first holographic plate.

Spaces of Uncertainty

Monday, 05 September 2016 00:00 Published in Group Exhibitions

As part of the Spaces of Uncertainty Summer Academy in Stuttgart, during September 2016, a number of projected interventions were temporarily installed at the Württembergischer Kunstverein.

Using the disregarded corner of the huge Kunstverein gallery space, these projected light installations 'brushed' the surface of the walls, were present for short periods and then disappeared (when the projection devises were switched of) leaving only the memory of the event.

Walking past the corner - on the way to more significant parts of the gallery, the 'drawn' luminous lines shift, perceptually and clash slightly with our understanding of the edges of the room and how we expect them to appear when we move past them.  There is a perspective 'animation' here activate entirely by the viewers visual expectation and their transition past the work.

The Summer Academy (part of the European Erasmus programme) brought together students and staff from 7 partner institutions :

The Hungarian University of Fine Arts (MKE)
Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design
Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow
Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava
Kingston University
University of Dundee
Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design &
Nottingham Trent University.

Teaching staff lead workshops with students from these European institutions and also developed aspects of their own research through conversation, consultation, collaboration and individual making and testing.
