Reading by Light combines contemporary and classic lights with text works from artists and writers to create a new exhibition environment for the acts of reading and consideration. The condition and act of reading will be explored in a number of light/text juxtapositions ranging from philosophical opinions to humour.
New lights and text works will be commissioned to join a number of specifically selected objects and texts to create a stimulating environment that will relate to those interested in design, art and literature. The reading material will come in many different formats such as works on paper, neon art works, books and small sculptural objects. Classic and contemporary furniture will also be included to work with a number of art works and lights.
Artists exhibiting will include: Damien Hirst, Lawrence Weiner, Simon Patterson, Ian Finlay, Rose Finn- Kelcey, Christopher P. Baker and Jeremy Deller. The lights come from designers such as Ingo Maurer, OOOMS, Freedom of Creation and Kenneth Grange..
