“Down beneath the shimmering surface” with Lewis Teague Wright’s Urchin at Lodos Gallery, Jun 29 – Aug 26

, 29 June 2017

Lewis Teague Wright presents solo exhibition Urchin at Mexico City’s Lodos Gallery opening June 29 and running to August 26.

The Mexico-City based artist is presenting an installation in three parts that revolves around a video “made up of six chapters framed within fictionalized vignettes,” with the main character ‘Urchin’ at the centre. 

The press release is short and brief, but also includes a piece of text alluding to the narrative that will unfold within the space:

“Down beneath the shimmering surface, our urchin was waking from his cozied slumber. Nestled between slowly quivering rocks, pulled by the ebb tide. As caustics danced across his barbed back, he let the larking swell bristle his outstretched spines, ringing out light melodies as they chattered together.”

Wright also runs Lock Up International, a transient curatorial project taking place in lockers and shipping containers around the world, and hosts Fervent Moon on NTS Radio.
