KVT lit up and alliterative

Lolo Lazar has certainly lit up Module 7 with his functional lightboxes and table lamps. If I wasn’t going through a lentern period in my collecting life (LPIMCL) I’d have been more than tempted to get a couple… the prices are extraordinarily reasonable.

The LPIMCL doesn’t stop me salivating over lots of good design stuff at the Module. Every time I go there I have an urge to chuck out all my furniture and start all over again.

Lolo’s lovely lights (I can’t help alliterating whenever I come across that alliterative name) would fit into a white cube gallery but they also shine brightly set amongst the attractive paraphenalia that scatters throughout both levels of the Module and about which Ilza Burchet has previously written a nice and erudite review.

The main feature in the space is the lamp that draws to a close Lolo’s last public exhibition at L’Espace which featured painterly photographic images of KCBT and KCAT wall graffitti.

Another outstanding box with 4 lit panels could be a follow on from this image at the same L’Espace show

Light boxes by artists have been a small feature of the art landscape this year but none I’ve seen approach the high quality of Lolo’s luscious lights all of which are made of  steel…polished, burnished, grunged up or textured.

One series lights up a surreal path with its portrayal of what are becoming to be old fashioned light bulbs…..

Three pieces indicate Lolo’s luminous level of design and execution skills

All in all it’s very much a collection of work planned to appeal to our impish and humerous shades and it works a treat

Perhaps the most intriguing is the large triangular box perched on 3 legs, its sides perforated with small images that keep you wondering and wandering

Lolo’s lovely lights will illunminate the Module for a few more days and are definitely worth a visit even if, like me, you are in a LPI yourCL…though you’ll need willpower to resist.
