Trade Show Faye Toogood

LDF17: Trade Show by Faye Toogood

Faye Toogood is known for her visually striking multi-layered installations and for LDF 2017 she did not disappoint. The premise of her installation – TRADE SHOW – was a simple one. Faye created a special edition of 50 trademark Spade chairs in sand-casted-aluminium and offered them to 50 artists and designers in return for a piece of their work. She then displayed the result of this artistic trade at the Garage in Brompton Design District in a beautifully realised space. The work by creatives such as Max Lamb, Assemble, Bethan Laura Wood and Tom Dixon ranged from photography and painting to sculpture and with its supporting documentation really reinforced the wonderfully collaborative spirit of the show.
