Exhibition Dates: 14th January – 12th March 2016
More Noise is an exhibition of three neon works by artist Tim Etchells, curated by Helen Marriage, Director of Artichoke for the Bloomberg SPACE as part of London Lumiere festival.
The exhibition features a new work ‘More Noise’ consisting of 14 interconnecting scattered neon word pieces of text ‘MORE NOISE’ and ‘THAN SIGNAL’ presented horizontally just off the floor level. The work invokes the idea of sound, as playing on some concerns of pattern, order, disorder, sense and nonsense. This work is presented with two existing wall neon works ‘Mirror Pieces’ and ‘Let’s Pretend which interact with and reflect some of the concerns of the new work.
