Thru 24 June 2012
Situated somewhere between comedy and tragedy, this vivid photographic tableau and accompanying texts paints a picture of a confused humanity, groping blindly in the darkness, obsessed with the cult of celebrity and guided only by an absolute desire for generalised, prescribed happiness.
As committed witnesses of the metamorphoses affecting society, photographer, Gérard Rancinan, and writer, Caroline Gaudriault, have engaged in an ongoing dialogue, delivering their dual observations on a generation seeking relentless progress at any cost.
Fresh from La Triennale di Milano, Rancinan brings this revolution in three acts to a close, debuting the complete Wonderful World series to the UK public.
The exhibition will also offer attendees a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become part of art history by participating in the final Wonderful World composition, which will be shot entirely on-site at the Londonewcastle Project Space.
Londonewcastle, led by Robert Soning and David Barnett, is a central London luxury residential developer that was established in 1995 and since then has developed over 500 apartments and penthouses in the capital - with a value of over £400million generated in the last six years alone. The company has established a reputation as one of the top design-led residential-focused mixed-use developers in central London. Londonewcastle has formed a joint venture with established property and development company UK & European Investments (UKEI). The joint venture creates powerful new capabilities for both companies to expand the existing portfolio by proactively pursuing new acquisition and development opportunities across London via outright purchase or co-investment, with or without planning permission.
