In August, while the gallery is closed, Joby Williamson was invited to place a new motorised installation in the window.
Tintype is positioned on a busy shopping street, flanked by a nail-bar on one side and a taxidermist the other with a dry-cleaners, a café and a greengrocers opposite. Williamson was interested in re-interpreting the familiar street language of signs. His installation Dividend references the kind of street sign positioned on the pavement to advertise shops. They are often double-sided and rotate in the wind.
Dividend is both a cryptic advert for the gallery and a playful inversion of the function of an everyday utilitarian object.
