Private View | Tom Dale: Terminal Blue
Saturday 6 December 2014, 6pm-8pm

Over recent years Tom Dale has produced a body of work for both galleries and public spaces, bringing to both the same dexterity and questioning vision. Terminal Blue will concentrate on two works, important  in the development of his practice, and set to be realised here for the first time, as well as a new set of sculptural works that have been commissioned especially for John Hansard Gallery.

Terminal Blue - the title work of the exhibition - forms the first part of the show, uniting art specifics, as much of Dale’s work does, such as questions of scale and definition, with more phenomenological ones. The piece is partially participatory, consisting of a banner being flown across the sky by plane in the form of a giant-sized colour swatch that details the shift from dark blue to light blue.

Another work is Infinity Wall, an apparatus that enables the gallery space to continually record, produce and destroy its own memory in real time. The printed images, which will emerge from one of the gallery walls, only to be shredded minutes later, will accumulate in the space over the duration of the exhibition leaving the detritus of its own memory to mingle with the other works in the show.

Tom Dale: Terminal Blue is a John Hansard Gallery exhibition supported by The Henry Moore Foundation.
