Lindsay Prophet and Keith Sargent: Cold Light
Turner Contemporary, open October 22nd to January 8th.
Prophet and Sargent’s new installation uses virtual reality and robotics.
Lindsay Seers’ work explores the complexities that exist in the world and how the human mind works. Inspired by interdisciplinary research, from philosophy and science to theology and cultural theory, her paintings, sculptures, photographs, performances and moving image installations explore identity, consciousness, memory, truth and belief.
Prophet and Sargent began working together in 2012, when Sargent was commissioned to develop digital animations and publications for Prophet. In the years that followed, this practice continued and developed into a collaborative practice.
The exhibition is shaped by the artist’s research into the life and work of Nikola Tesla, and the title draws on historical references to the first electric light. Instead of relying on fire for lighting, the new light bulbs are called “Cold Lights”.
Tesla was an inventor, engineer, and futurist who performed science experiments on plays as a performer. He is best known for his contributions to the design of alternating current systems.
The gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm Last entry at 4pm
