1st Asset luxury property agent is pleased to announce its support of Platform, a programme of changing solo presentations of outdoor sculpture, curated by TRYON St Gallery, in the courtyard space at the front of our Tryon Street office.
Platform was launched on Wednesday 6th November with a new work commissioned for the space by Martin Fletcher - Systems House: 'New Reflector Tower' made from stainless Steel, aluminium, concrete, reflective tape & industrial paint.
The artist works under a pseudonym ‘Systems House’ that seems more fitting for a vast faceless corporation than a single artist. At once ambiguous and yet inherently powerful and authoritative, Fletcher’s alias prepares us for his sculptures, which echo this sentiment. Standing sleek and endlessly refined, Fletcher’s works are evocative of broadcasting and surveillance technology and appear simultaneously functional and fantastical. In a world where technology is becoming smaller and more hidden, Fletcher’s dominant structures speak of out-dated futurism, transported from a time when technology was considered extraordinary rather than commonplace. The highly finished aesthetic of Fletcher’s works imitates mass factory production, belying the intensive artistic process with which he creates each work. His sculptures seem to both venerate technological innovation and forewarn a Sci-Fi dystopia.
The sculpture will be on display until late February when the programme will then display its next work on a rolling schedule anticipating 4 - 6 sculptures per year. We hope the variety and changing display will provide enjoyment for local residents and visitors alike.
