Galleri Gro, Jakobstad, Finland

In collaboration with Novia University and the YA Fine Arts department, Captain Lightfoot presented The Usher; new works by the three members of the collective in Jakobstad, Finland.

 

Stripping Galleri Gro of its own light and structure a little like the creeping Finnish winter, Captain Lightfoot created a new and unfamiliar space for the viewer; one primarily of darkness. The Usher is a performative exhibition that intimately leads the viewer through its space. Different artworks and details of the building emerge from the darkness; exposed for varying lengths of time these artworks demand the viewers attention before disappearing again.

 

Captain Lightfoot acted as the usher in this performance; playfully exploring the language created between the artworks themselves and their occupied space, whilst questioning the viewers own placement within this narrative.
