Solid Light Works is the first major UK exhibition of artist Anthony McCall’s work in over a decade. It explores all facets of his work and includes the UK premieres of three ‘solid light’ installations.
McCall describes his practice as existing in the space where cinema, sculpture and drawing overlap. He is best known for his large-scale, immersive sculptural light installations that incorporate the visitor and invite them to become active participants in the work.
Aided by digital projection, McCall’s new installations use only projected light and a thin mist, creating physically powerful works that take on the appearance of sculptural forms in space. Visitors are encouraged to engage with the planes and chambers created by the projections.
At the heart of the exhibition, two galleries are devoted to a survey of graphic works to emphasize the importance of drawing for McCall.
