At Guardian News Room Gallery, London
Transformer is series of temporary installations created from thousands of transformer laminates that have been folded, slotted and balanced to created architectonic assemblages. This incarnation of Transformer was exhibited as part of the Saatchi 'Your Gallery' exhibition at The Guardian's News Room gallery in London.
In September 2006 The Guardian and the Saatchi gallery's Your Gallery project joined forces to create the first reader curated art exhibition. A panel of judges had chosen the work of 30 artists from the 10,000 artists who are registered on the Your Gallery website. These 30 artists were featured in a special launch issue of the Guardian's G2 supplement on 6 September and on the Guardian's website. Readers were given until 18 September to vote for their favourite work, and the ten most popular artists were selected for exhibit in October.
The winners were: Peter Root, Lotta de Beus, Elena Bajo, Joshua Hagler, Paul John Taylor, Sarah Jeffries, Amy Stein, Robin Cracknell, Anthea Bush and Claire Morgan.
The judges were: artists Marc Quinn and Cornelia Parker; Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst, co-director of the Gagosian gallery; Tim Marlow, director of White Cube, and broadcaster and Guardian art critic Jonathan Jones. I was nominated by Mollie Dent-Brocklehurst.
