Description

Ron Haselden / John Timberlake
'[…] both a beyond and the conditions of mapping that beyond'
3rd Sept – 27th Sept 2019
The exhibition comprised a sequence of five constructed pieces made of plywood, canvas and mixed media, two photographs, and a wire grid, which extended over the walls of most of the gallery. The Constructions and photographs were made by John Timberlake, the wire grid was made by Ron Haselden.
1. The title of this installation comes from a 1988 essay by the American critic Rosalind Krauss entitled ‘Photography and Abstraction’. The installation combines the work of John Timberlake (b.1967) and Ron Haselden (b.1944). John Timberlake lives in E14 and has been a participant in HUSK’s Continuum Programme since March of this year. Ron Haselden, who was invited by John Timberlake to collaborate on this show, lives in SE London and the West of France. The two artists have exhibited together before, but this is the first time they have done so in the UK.
2. The annealed single strand copper wire benefits from a thin tin plating making the copper wire robust and resilient to moisture. Tinned copper wire is particularly useful where excellent electrical conductivity and thermal resistance is required, suitable for use as rewireable fuse links and shorting links.
3. Combined, the works might be seen to play with themes of the grisaille (lit. French: ‘grey’) because they refer to monochrome works where colour is largely absent, but also insofar that grisaille, as a genre of painting, is historically closely linked to sculpture, placing the emphasis upon form rather than colour.
4. Features and benefits: excellent corrosion resistance; easy to solder; longer life than non-tinned copper wire; resistant to humidity and damp conditions; range of AWG sizes
5. Traditionally, grisailles were used decoratively, to stand in the place of sculptures or bas-reliefs, giving the optical effect of such from a distance. As wall pieces, both artists’ work might be said to be situated in a blurred zone between two-dimensional line drawing and three-dimensional sculpture. The works arise from individual reflections on that zone as an abstraction, and the qualities of the respective materials through which both artists respectively navigate it.
6. Tinned copper has many uses in the electrical wiring industry. Due to its efficient performance in humid or rainy climates copper wire is extremely useful in applications where this is a discerning factor. Some of the most common environments are: […]
