Young Bright Things: David Gill Gallery, London
‘It is something that I always wanted to do,’ says journalist Gianluca Longo of ’Young Bright Things’, a new exhibition of youthful design talent that he has curated for David Gill Gallery. ‘My spectre of interest goes from fashion to interiors and art. I am always looking for the next big thing in all these fields, always in search of new creativity.’
Digitally carved, then hand-cast in reconstituted marble dust, a console table by British sculptor Nick Hornby (tipped as the ’next Gormley’) has been made by stretching and twisting the famous silhouette of Michelangelo’s David.
