Tim Spooner

 
 

Tim Spooner è un artista londinese che lavora in ambito visivo e performativo, con un approccio manuale low tech e magico. Dal 2010 mette in scena ed espone collezioni di performing sculptures, composte di materia viva e inanimata, suoni ed elettricità. Queste creazioni mirano ad aprire prospettive al di della dimensione umana e sviluppare una comprensione del mondo fisico rivelando qualcosa della sua vita interna. Tra i lavori recenti: The Assembly of Animals, una commissione di Bamboo Network/TJP che combina performance e scultura, e The Telescope, performance al microscopio che rivela un universo di oggetti in miniatura manipolati attraverso magneti, elettricità e reazioni chimiche. Ospitato in diversi contesti tra teatri e gallerie in Gran Bretagna (tra cui Whitstable Biennale, Whitechapel Gallery, Cambridge Junction, Manchester Science Museum), in Francia e Italia (TJP Strasbourg, Terni Festival, Natura dei Teatri Parma), Tim Spooner è attualmente artista associato ad Artsadmin a Londra, e collabora con il TJP di Strasburgo. I suoi lavori precedenti sono stati commissionati e supportati da b-side Festival, Chisenhale Dance, Homemaden, Artsadmin, The Arts Foundation, Juliet Gomperts Trust, National Theatre Studio, Arts Council England. Ha fatto parte della Troupe Mabuse di Simon Vincenzi.

Tim Spooner is an artist working from London in painting and performance, presenting work in both galleries and theatres. Since 2010 he has been making and demonstrating collections of performing sculptures, presenting them in vibrating compositions of living and inanimate matter, sound and electricity. Exemplifying a low-tech, handmade yet magical quality, these shows aim to open up perspectives beyond the human scale and expand an understanding of the physical world by revealing something of its inner life. Recent work includes The Assembly of Animals, which combines performance with sculpture. Another current work is The Telescope, which uses a microscope camera to reveal a universe of miniature objects manipulated using magnets, electricity and chemical reactions. This has been performed in diverse contexts in the UK - theatres, galleries and symposiums (including Whitstable Biennale, Whitechapel Gallery, Cambridge Junction, Manchester Science Museum), and in France and Italy (TJP Strasbourg, Terni Festival, Natura dei Teatri Parma). Tim Spooner is an Artsadmin Associate artist, and also has an ongoing relationship with TJP Strasbourg, having developed work in residencies and contributed to a publication (Revue COI) as well as presenting several shows in their programme. His work has been supported and commissioned by Arts Council England, Bamboo Network/TJP, b-side Festival, Chisenhale Dance and the Homemade, Artsadmin Bursary, The Arts Foundation, the Juliet Gomperts Trust and the National Theatre Studio. He's been part of the Troupe Mabuse projects directed by Simon Vincenzi.
