by Calum Storrie and Geoffrey Winston.
18 October – 24 November with an opening on 17th October.
This exhibition, the second from Storrie and Winston, will be the continuation of a long-running conversation. They are both designers – one of exhibitions and the other of graphics – but they have never collaborated in these capacities. So the 2-D designer assembles and evokes sculpture that questions what sculpture can be and where it comes from and the 3-D designer makes work on paper based on destitute books and decaying architecture. They share territory in the making of drawings of musicians, often done at Cafe Oto. This is where their conversation began, in a space for both listening and drawing.
Calum Storrie is a writer and exhibition designer who lives in Hackney. He has designed exhibitions for London’s National Gallery, the Royal Academy and the National Portrait Gallery. Over the last few years he has worked on a series of acclaimed displays for the Wellcome Collection and with Nobel Prize laureate Orhan Pamuk on the traveling version of the novelist’s ‘Museum
of Innocence’ project. He is currently designing an exhibition on The Clash album ‘London Calling’ for the Museum of London. Calum Storrie’s book ‘The Delirious Museum; A Journey from the Louvre to Las Vegas’ was published in 2007. In 2018 an extended and revised version of the book was translated and published in Italy.
His previous exhibition, ‘Drawings and Other Noises’ with Geoffrey Winston took place at Park Studios.
