"Lucy Gibson intervenes in one of the Merrion Centre windows facing Wade Lane, with her mythological ‘Pagoda’ installation inspired by shapes found in the shopping centre’s existing architecture. The pagoda suggests a halfmemory in the history of the city, or a story that hasn’t quite been told, and also contains a sound piece: the bells on the unseen pagoda spire will be audible through the vitrine, perhaps at night or in a rare moment of calm amongst the hubbub of the city streets.
‘Trajectory’ reflects Vitrine’s journey into another year, with a new group of artists based mostly in the wider Yorkshire region, showing a range of work including wall-based collages, site-specific installation, and sound and video pieces. An illustrated full-colour catalogue with a text by Robert Clark, made possible by kind assistance from Leeds Art Collections Fund, is available from Vitrine at Patrick Studios or to pick up FREE from Leeds City Art Gallery and Gateway Yorkshire Tourist Information Office inside Leeds Rail Station."
