Lucy Skaer 'Forest on Fire'

Located on the ground floor of the London Mithraeum within Bloomberg's European HQ, Bloomberg SPACE aims to showcase innovative contemporary art delivering a response to the unique and fascinating history of this area of the City of London.

NextShoot were commissioned by Bloomberg to produce and film a short exhibition video for 'Forest on Fire', developed by Turner Prize nominated contemporary artist Lucy Skaer, who works with sculpture, film, painting, and drawing.

The installation is inspired by the image of the Tauroctony, which shows the god Mithras slaying a bull, surrounded by images telling the story of recreation and rebirth. The installation explores the way symbols are created and understood, creating a play on words and narrative associations.

The exhibition features a series of bronze-cast animal pelts and abstract and carved stone animal heads. The works are separated from the rest of the space by a cast bronze line, a symbolic boundary between between abstract and material.

Filmed in Endiburgh and London, the film follows the creation of some of the bronze works for the exhibition, and tracks the artist's installation of the pieces over the course of several days. In addition, we filmed Lucy within the Mithraeum itself, the source of inspiration for this piece of work.
