Daniel Lismore’s ‘Studio Visit’ exhibition grabs the attention of fashion and art lovers in Bournemouth
Daniel Lismore, British Sculptor and Activist, has brought his ‘Studio Visit’ exhibition to GIANT gallery in Bournemouth. The exhibition is currently open for the public from 13 January to 12 March, 2023.
The project space at GIANT, founded by Stuart Semple, was engaged with more than 100 visitors on Thursday.
Following the success of the 2022 exhibition ‘Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken’ at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum in Coventry, the Artist is back with yet another exciting show.
The 38-year-old British curator and designer has become popular with his unconventional style statements and three-dimensional tapestries. The London and Coventry based artist is a prominent figure in the fashion and art industry for over 20 years.
The exhibition showcases Lismore’s journey throughout his 20 years of personal and studio life, which includes his personal collection of fabric sculptures and archives of photography, artworks and paintings. The displays at his exhibitions are born out of his life experiences, activism and journeys throughout his artistic career, as a ‘living sculpture’.
The Bournemouth-born fashionista visited the gallery as a ‘living sculpture’ on the opening reception of the exhibition on January 12, Thursday. In addition, the artist was happy to talk about his emotions on coming back to Bournemouth.
Lismore talks about his hopes to bring forth unique art works to his birth place:
“I was born here and I am coming back to this place 38 years later. It was the first time I’d ever been back. I would like to put up my biggest show here in this town. That’s a dream. The beaches here are beautiful and I would like to do something on the beach hopefully.”
The local visitors were excited to interact and share their thoughts with Lismore at the gallery.
Catherine Lisa, 32, a local admirer and follower of Daniel Lismore talks about her experience visiting the gallery: “Lismore has become a brand now. I am fascinated by his works and each exhibition adds on to it. As someone from the LGBTQIA+, his words are empowering and enlightening at the same time.”
This unique exhibition gathered public interest ever since the first day of the exhibition. Visit GIANT to find out more about the exhibition.
