“Mixed Media Installation by Peter Liversidge: Hello, 2013 (58 Light bulbs, powder coated steel, motion activated sensor)” / Ingleby Gallery / Art Basel Hong Kong 2013 / SML.20130523.EOSM.03963

Charming typographic installation with motion activated sensors. That said, I am personally a bit tired of seeing them. They mostly remind me of Edward Ruscha’s paintings with big type, except with added technology. When these first appeared in the art world I do like them but unfortunately not anymore. They become almost formulaic these days, but they are popular because obviously _some_ people love them.

 

Peter Liversidge (born 1973, Lincoln, England) is a British contemporary artist notable for his diverse artistic practice and use of proposals.

 

Over the course of the last 12 years, using an Olivetti typewriter, Liversidge has created proposals for exhibitions that range from the simple to the impossible. He experiments with what he describes as the "notion of creativity", often realised as objects, performances, or happenings over the course of an exhibition.

 

Liversidge says of his proposals that: “.. it’s important that some of the proposals are actually realized, but no more so that the others that remain only as text on a piece of A4 paper. In a sense they are all possible and the bookwork that collates the proposals allows the reader to curate their own show, and because of its size and scale the bookwork allows an individual to interact with each of the proposals on their own terms, one to one.”
