An Afternoon Seminar with Matthew Darbyshire, Owen Hatherly and Rupert Ackroyd.
This Saturday the Tramway are hosting, an afternoon discussion focusing on issues which arise from Matthew Darbyshire’s new commission for Tramway, ‘T Rooms’. The artist will discuss issues which arise from his commission for Tramway, alongside his collaborators on the exhibition Rupert Ackroyd, Jacob Farrell, and Owen Hatherley.
Matthew Darbyshire’s installation T Rooms is a trompe l’oeil style architectural render of a proposed development, although owing to the eerie silence of it all, Tramway’s visitors may suspect that they’ll have to make do with the virtual rendition "until the market picks up". With its computer generated geometry, pixelated curves and uniform proportions, T Rooms suggests an abject, homogenised developers vernacular in which the Mackintosh-style has reduced to a series of bland and generic motifs – is it a bar, spa, bank or boutique? Is it for eating, sleeping, praying or a meeting?
