Jacob Charles Wilson in-depth interview for The London Magazine with Charlie Godet Thomas with Alys Williams, discussing ‘Cloud Study’ (Thomas’s new public sculpture commission for SCULPTURE AT Bermondsey Square), the gallerist’s relationship to programming outside the white cube, and artist representation. Reflecting on this time of change in the art market and new galley models.
“Floating above your head a silver-grey weather vane in the shape of a speech bubble, turning with the wind … For Joe Btfsplk, the moment when he traps the cloud is a moment of revelation and renewed life. But there’s a certain irony in this episode taken by Thomas, that to save himself, Joe Btfsplk had to release the cloud, condemning himself and giving in to the forces he couldn’t control. It links back to Thomas’ own thought that limitations are linked to creativity, and similarly, that the difficulties faced by galleries and artists in London today may drive new models of working together.”

“Cloud Study, is an immersive sculptural piece made up of a weather vane with a speech bubble atop – when this piece turns in the wind, the phrase ‘-yo’ is stuck in thar fo’ever li’l gray cloud.!’. The words have been laser cut into the bubble, emblazoning the message so that it can be seen from both sides. Not just a comment from the artist, you may recognise the line from Al Cap’s cartoon ‘Li’l Abler’, an iconic American comic strip where one of its characters “entombs the cloud that bedevils him in a cave, sealing it with a boulder…the protection this offers is, of course illusory”. Encompassing both political messages and personal feelings, the piece aims to encourage the viewer to meditate on “the tragicomic nature of life”: as the vane moves in the wind, it reflects the twisting emotions and thought oscillations of daily life.”

“Malte Bruns, Patrizio Di Massimo, and Jamie Fitzpatrick weave visual narratives of power, desire, and dread through their artworks, often evoking an uncannily mysterious, playful, and yet serious atmosphere. Akin to fairy tales, the artworks featured in this exhibition offer more than what is visible on the surface: they hold a revealing mirror up to contemporary society.” Read more here.
