Belenius

Monochromantic

21.10—12.11.2017

Not yet an absolute figure in the context we usually call “the (art) scene”, Timothy Wilson operates in the borderlands between light design, sculpture and performance. This brings him a measure of independence as well as determination. Shown previously at Söderdepån 2041 in Södermalm (a run down old central garage and workshop for the city’s public transportation buses, an extensive building taking up a whole block, now beautifully decayed), industrial size laser installations provided us with the visions and aesthetics of Wilson: they are dark and dystopian, with the futuristic connotations that his medium suggests.

A feeling of dextrous precision while mastering these directions of light provides a striking effect. Even more so when presented sculpturally. It is also a requirement when he creates landscapes and futuristic patterns. Wilson will be showing five sculptures consisting of glass, water and sand presenting an inverted spatiality, making one think of underwater gardens.

Timothy Wilson (b. 1988 in Stockholm) is the guardian of the night and at the same time the champion of light. With installations at the Swedish Museum of Performing Arts and Söderdepån 2041 behind him, he makes his debut exhibition at Belenius.
