As part of the extended programme of the Photographers' Gallery in London, Scala partner Jigsaw24 has
created a new digital display named The Wall, which serves as an exhibition space for screen media. The Wall consists of a 2.7 x 3m Sharp video wall, situated on the ground floor and visible to everyone visiting the building and those passing by on the street.
The Photographers' Gallery is the largest public gallery in London dedicated to photography. From the latest emerging talent, to historical archives and established artists – The Gallery is the place to see photography in all its forms.
The Wall is part of a large refurbishement of the gallery, which closed for refurbishment two years ago. By doubling the gallery space with a two-storey extension, Irish architects O'Donnell and Tuomey have done a terrific job. The building is elegant, airy, and lets you focus on the work. Two new layers of high-ceilinged galleries have been added, meaning photography, film, video and digital imagery, as well as works that demand controlled humidity and light levels, can finally be shown in the right conditions.
With its cutaway black rendering, stretches of the original, late-Victorian patterned brickwork and a
wraparound ground-floor window, not to mention floor-to-ceiling windows on the upper storeys that stop you thinking you're standing in a box, the £9.2m renovation is more than a mere makeover.
