Gemma Nelson will be showing work at VEGAS’ new gallery space, 274 Poyser St, Bethnal Green, London, at it’s launch on the 10th March 2011. The exhibition will include all VEGAS’ represented artists and the theme will be ‘Roulette’.
VEGAS is delighted to present ‘Roulette’. A group show which marks four years since the gallery’s conception and, in bringing together recent works from all represented artists, is an opening celebration of the gallery’s newly built independent space at 274 Poyser Street E2 9RF
In a quest to find a ‘perpetual motion machine’ the Roulette wheel was first created in crude form by Blaise Pascal in the 17th century. A game of anomalies and co-incidences, all the numbers on the wheel adding up to number 6 forced the myth that Pascal had made a pact will the devil to obtain the secret of the wheel. Over the last 200 years mathematicians and physicists have dedicated vast amounts of time and money fruitlessly trying to work out the patterns and probabilities of the wheel and modified over time the version of the wheel we know to day is an vast amalgamation of European influences built up over the years to create the game of chance we know as roulette.
VEGAS Gallery invites you to join us in our game.
The private view will be held on Thursday 10 March 6-9 pm and is kindly sponsored by The Embassy of Norway, The Embassy of Switzerland, Essence Luxury Transport, Vitamin Water and Cakelicious Limited.
