I was invited to create the exhibition design and marketing material for the group exhibition PLAY, shown at the Hackney Showroom, London, over the first week of June 2017.

PLAY presents a diverse body of work of four international artists, from the MFA Scenography course at the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama. Through set design, installation, and live art, the exhibition explores the dynamic and innovative interplays between the body, space and time.

Occupying the main performance space of the Showroom, the design of the exhibition makes use of the existing stage decks, technical equipment, and lighting rig to showcase the four artist’s work. In doing so, the show incorporates technical elements and conventions of the theatre within the format of the exhibition in order to create a hybrid form.
