Ivan Jones:
Architects
27.01.2018-15.04.2018

 
A wonderful series of photographic portraits of leading European female architects begins its national tour at Jerwood Gallery in the New Year.
 
Jerwood Gallery is uniquely appropriate as a destination for this exhibition as it was designed by one of the architects captured by the lens of Ivan Jones - Hana Loftus of HAT Projects.
 
Loftus’ Colchester practice, HAT Projects, designed and built Jerwood Gallery in 2012. Hana’s portrait wittily captures her understanding of ‘line’ by setting her against a background of vertical stripes in the Jerwood Gallery courtyard.
 
Jones has photographed each of the architects at the heart of a key building they have been pivotal in creating. Each full-colour image sets the person among the materials and physical environments which form the public face of their work.
 
Architects: Portraits by Ivan Jones will be displayed in and around Jerwood Gallery’s bright, airy café as part of its ongoing series of photography displays.
 
The tour has been co-ordinated to commemorate the centenary of female suffrage in the UK in 2018.
