Fruits of the Lûm was an exhibition in two parts.

A series of public-realm commissions in the form of custom-made lightboxes were displayed around Liverpool, launched in tandem with an exhibition at Crown Building Studios, showing the work of five international emerging artists, Mike Aitken, Adam Ferriss, Holly Hendry, Jake Laffoley and Chloë Manasseh.

Fruits of the Lûm looked at ideas of commerciality within contemporary art and how commerce might necessitate certain changes to an artist’s process of making.

The title of this project is a playful reference to popular branding whilst also nodding to French cinematic pioneers, the Lumiére brothers. It was their invention of the film projector that allowed them to fulfill their desire to share with the world. These sentiments are echoed by Tžužjj through a desire to bring exciting artists into public consciousness.

This exhibition and its accompanying public realm lightbox project were programmed as a gentle introduction to future intentions of Tžužjj.
