Time For Magic: Jamie Reid
Public opening Summer Solstice
21st June 3pm - 7pm
Isis Gallery at Regency Town House, Brighton
21st June - 6th July
Wednesday - Sunday 12-6pm
Isis Gallery is very pleased and proud to present at the Regency Town House in Brighton a new installation of work by the world renowned British artist Jamie Reid (b.Croydon, 1947). Time For Magic features ritualistic hangings and objects arranged around a tipi - a shelter, a community space, a condensed Temporary Autonomous Zone. Within the tipi sits the Eight Fold Year book, an instruction manual and guide to the mysterium. Including work from the late 80’s to the present, Time For Magic sits within a sequence of installations by Reid that combine the old and the new, ignoring the rules of ‘market’ and the need for fresh product. Certain totemic hangings - including Universal Majesty Verity Love Infinite (1989, acrylic on unstretched canvas, 234 x 237 cm) - have been used both in rituals and exhibitions, attesting to their power and gaining energy as they accumulate age.
