Tom Dale is at the TRIO Bienal in Rio, Brazil and at the Centre d’Art, Neuchatel, Switzerland

Tom Dale: The Mighty Crowns

Artist Tom Dale is having a busy 2015. After his solo show at the John Hansard gallery, Southampton that is due to tour to NIMAC in Nicosia, Cyprus, Tom is currently participating in the TRIO Bienal in Rio de Janeiro Brazil as part of ‘Reverberations – Crossed Borders of Three-dimensionality’ where he is also showing his edition with The Multiple Store ‘The Mighty Crowns’, illustrated above.

For The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations, he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze. The weight of the bronze from which they are made tells us that (like strange sceptres) these rockets will never fly, nor will they explode to light up the night-time sky.

“I see these attempts to reach the infinite as rituals that try to fix meaning, just as the grand memorials and monuments in bronze try, but ultimately fail, to fix memories in time.”

Tom Dale, 2014

Tom’s work is also included in The Thousand-Thigh Hospice:experiments in healing a six-week long programme of exhibitions, performances, concerts, conferences, workshops that run until 3 October 2015 in Neuchatel, Switzerland and that celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Centre d’Art Neuchatel. For The Thousand-Thigh Hospice:experiments in healing a Tom has created a new sculpture ‘Last Night Was Different’ (image below, courtesy of the artist) is the latest in a line of inflatable objects produced using unconventional materials.

Terminal Blue: Tom Dale at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery until the 7th of February

Two of Tom Dale’s major recent works, Terminal Blue and Infinity are currently on show as part of a solo exhibition at Southampton’s John Hansard Gallery until 7th of February. Terminal Blue is a giant banner of a dark-to-light-blue colour swatch being towed by a plane through the ether at certain times of day, as advertised in the local paper. Gallery-based Infinity Wall features images of the art space that are being constantly recorded, printed and shredded to make a nest of scrapped moments. Meanwhile, an ornate suburban conservatory has had its double glazing removed and been stuffed with books the artist bought in job lots from car boot sales. For more information go to the John Hansard Gallery website.

For The Multiple Store, Tom Dale has produced The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations; he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze. It is a set of three rocket-like bronzes, available for purchase on this website.
