Lazarides Rathbone


Lazarides Rathbone kicks off 2011 with a huge warm welcome to Doug Foster, the latest addition to their stable of artists.

For his first solo exhibition with the gallery, In The Naughty Chair, Foster will showcase a selection of his most celebrated works alongside his newest interactive video installation from which the exhibition derives its title.


Continuing his Human Experiments series, Foster's latest video installation delves deeper into his introspective fascination with the human psyche.


Part film, part sculpture those visiting the exhibition will be able to interact with the artwork displayed over the gallery's two floors, which will be transformed into a stark, clinical setting for the artist's stereoscopic and high-definition screen works.
