Roger Thorp 'In Fields of Grace' at The Crypt Gallery During Frieze Week
In the subterranean setting of The Crypt Gallery at St Pancras Church, London, Anima-Mundi presents ‘In Fields of Grace’ an elemental, multimedia solo exhibition by British artist Roger Thorp consisting of five immersive and interactive installations.
‘In Fields of Grace’ presents an echoing loop, as if from a scene within a script, where Thorp’s protagonist dreams he is walking through Campo de Fiori in Rome - no longer as a cobbled piazza, but a field of wild flowers. A nostalgic lamentation for the past permeates all facets of the exhibition evoking a quiet and subtle sense of urgency to protect what is unique and authentic; in contrast to the pervasive erosion endemic to our contemporary world.
The multi-layered nature of Thorp’s work, accompanied by intricate soundscapes and snippets of spoken word create a rich environment, in which the audience is taken out of our daily monotony and immersed in a whirling, dancing, beautiful dream.
The exhibition is accompanied by a text from Dr Virginia Button.
