For the first time in London, work by photographers Harriet Clare and Nick Lewin are brought together for ‘Transient’ an exhibition at Margaret Street Gallery.
Curator and Metro’s own Director, Steve Macleod, has paired up Clare's delicate, kaleidoscopic "Woebegone" series of images using line, texture and repetitive montaging with Lewin's ethereal macro photographs of decaying floral blooms.
Though initially the images may appear disparate when viewed in context it’s clear that they relate as both artists explore their fascination with the passing of time, attempting to mark their own transient time in the present.
The exhibition, running over two floors of the gallery has involved Metro at many stages. Producing Lewin’s magnificent one and a half metre square aluminum
mounted C Type prints,
which hang amid a striking three metre wide vinyl, wallpapered on the walls and ceiling of the lower gallery. Additionally we have produced some of Clare’s images as massive oversized Giclée prints
draping down the gallery walls results in the transformation from exhibition to art installation.
