Pae White: Too much night, again
13 Mar-12 May 2013, Main Gallery, Admission Free
Due to popular demand, the South London Gallery will be open on Bank Holiday Monday 6 May from 11am-6pm, and we will also be open until 9pm on Thursday 9 May.
Los Angeles-based artist Pae White merges art, design, craft and architecture through site specific installations and individual works which defy our expectations of a variety of techniques and media. For her South London Gallery exhibition she creates a mesmerising installation in which vast quantities of coloured yarn span and criss-cross the room to create supergraphics spelling out words that can only be deciphered by navigating the space. Inspired by a period of insomnia and consequent reflection on the transience of our existence, the letters and words emerge and dissolve depending on both our physical relationship to them and the relative weight of the overall aesthetic experience.
Watch a film REcreative made about the installation of Pae White's work, and which also includes an interview with her about the process:
The exhibition is supported by Vicky Hughes and John Smith, and The Henry Moore Foundation. With additional thanks to greengrassi, London.
