Phase III le modulor /Phase IV intersections art/architecture

Virgoe, April (2019) Phase III le modulor /Phase IV intersections art/architecture. Galerie HLM.

Abstract

The output consists of two sets of paintings that were included in the following two related exhibitions: ‘Phase III Le Modular’, Galerie HLM, Marseilles, and ‘Phase IV Intersections: Art/Architecture’, Stephen Lawrence Gallery, University of Greenwhich, London. Research process: Virgoe was invited to exhibit in ‘Phase III Le Modulor’ in Marseilles, 2019. For this a new body of work was produced, which responded to the 1948 text by LeCorbusier, and to be exhibited in the town where the Unite D’Habitation was realised. ‘Phase IV’ brought together artists from the UK and France along with ‘Outside Architecture’ research group from the University of Greenwich. Research insights: For the first exhibition Virgoe produced a series of paintings using a loosely modulor system of repeated units within the paintings, which to some extent reflect the adaprations that LeCorbusier himself made to his system. These were conceived as a series in a grid format, and as such bear a relationship to the numerous layout iterations in the text. For ‘Phase IV’, Virgoe exhibited four paintings that consider the space between architecture and abstraction. Dissemination:Phase III was a group exhibition at Galerie HLM, Marseilles, and Phase IV was a group exhibition at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery, Greenwich.
