As patrons of TRYON St Gallery, 1st Asset luxury property agent is pleased to announce the launch of their second group exhibition Meridian on Thursday 28th November. The exhibition includes works by artists Mat Chivers, Gregory Michael Hernandez, Matthew Picton, Stefana McClure, Susan Stockwell and Alison Turnbull.
Meridian explores the ways in which humans have long been fixated on recording their position in the world. Complex maps, charts and plans have been used to document the physicality of land, water and air as well as to record social hierarchy and genetics. This medium of apparent empiricism has been used to shape a nation's image of itself, to coerce, propagandise, distort and create new truths in the service of political motivation. Ordered information is used to communicate meaning, motivation and sometimes to create chaos. The artists consider these themes in their work as well as exploring the aesthetic qualities of empirical information.
The artists included in Meridian have previously exhibited at the Royal Academy of the Arts, Tate Modern, National Museum of China – Beijing, the Venice Biennale 2013 and 2011, and Katona Museum of Art – New York. Their work is held in permanent collections around the world, including MOMA, Fitzwilliam Museum – Cambridge, Fogg Art Museum – Massachusetts and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
TRYON St Gallery is based beneath our office, where we also hold a number of private networking events and local residents interested in the super-prime property market.
