The Wasp Room -a new gallery space situated within Tether Studios in Nottingham- will be hosting its inaugural exhibition, ‘Play State’, from Thursday 11th December to Sunday 21st December 2008. The private view will take place on Tuesday 9th December, 6 – 8pm.
Smith Partners Ltd. is a collaboration between two London-based artists, Laura Nash and Hanne Cole, whose individual practices approach themes of humour and entertainment, sport and games.
Working under their collaborative pseudonym for this show, Nash and Cole have created images which, taking inspiration from the written rules of traditional games such as ‘British Bulldog’, use colour, shape and line to reflect the essence of games; with notions of ‘home’ or ‘base’, movements or actions made by players, team allegiances and strategic nuances reflected in their cartographical compositions.
The gallery is open Thursday-Sunday, 3-7pm, or by appointment.
