Tom Lovelace spent the month of August 2013 in Aarhus as artist in residence for Fresh Eyes; hosted by Galleri Image. During this research visit Tom immersed himself into the fabric of Aarhus, gaining a unique insight into the character of the city and its inhabitants. This research has provided him with a rich platform of experiences, observations and visual material with which he is currently constructing a new series of work for Fresh Eyes. Tom also gave a public photography workshop at Godsbanen and an artist talk at Galleri Image during his visit. Tom Lovelace has developed an art practice which is rooted in photography, but also incorporates sculpture and staged, performative events. He is interested in both the possibilities and boundaries between the photograph and the sculptural object. His subject matter manifests in the everyday, minimal and seemingly mundane objects and environments that surround us. Through photography he transforms and reconfigures the ‘everyday’ within new visual structures and narratives. Lovelace’s project will culminate in two separate bodies of work. The first will consist of a range of photographic prints and objects which present fragments of and for the city; stripped down to minimal components and reflections. Lovelace is currently constructing a series of photographic sculptures, which are made in response to his Aarhus residency. He will be returning to Aarhus in 2014 to collect further visual material. The second presentation of work will take place during 2017 where Lovelace will unveil an installation within the city of Aarhus. This installation will effectively trace and document the year through photography in its most basic elements: the rays of the sun. The installation will also provide a meeting place for both residents and tourists to meet, socialize and reflect. Bio:
