Block 336: Tamsin Snow 'Spare Face' (until 10th November 2018)
Upon entering the first gallery space, 'Waiting Room', an intriguing installation, presents itself. The concept of the waiting room as the first part of an exhibition isn't exactly groundbreaking, in fact I saw it at GAO Gallery in Whitechapel a couple of weeks ago in a show by Godai Sahara; however for Snow this is the point of departure to make the viewer instantly think about the power of interior design, as the plastic seats are positioned at a 90-degree angle from the screen, so it is either impossible to see the video piece or the viewer must sit uncomfortably on the chairs. The film acting as a synthetic window is similarly unnerving as CGI raindrops repeatedly run down the screen in silence. A sterile palette of a range of whites, greys and blacks are recurring, from the gallery walls to the chairs to the video, again providing a blank framework in order to truly draw attention to the art.
