Soo Ji Shin (신수지) at Canary Wharf

Under the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf there’s a busy shopping centre. In amongst the arcades there are window displays which advertise some of the shops. But there are also art and design displays which are open daily and showcase up-and-coming artists, designers and craftspeople. Soo Ji Shin is exhibiting her chandeliers and lighting designs in the Lightbox Gallery during January and February.

Date: 5 Jan – 24 Feb 2012
Venue: Lightbox Gallery, Canada Walk, Canada Place–Art/Events/

Soo Ji’s designs are fresh and unusual. She strives to bring movement to ordinarily motionless lighting. Chandeliers look as if they are sea creatures that gather when people feed them. Soo Ji’s designs are all bespoke, made by her own hand sewing.
