Let there be light.
One of the world’s pioneering artists, Cerith Wyn Evans brings his unique concept to White Cube Bermondsey’s South Gallery, incorporating a diverse range of media including installation, sculpture, photography, film and text in to a truly enchanting experience.
Exhibiting now and through to the November 15th 2015, the collection is spearheaded by an arrangement of three neon sculptures which vividly cut through the air to create an enigmatic concept of space and light.
Borrowing movements from the traditional Japanese Noh theatre, the new work on display takes on Evans’ signature style of tracing the complexity of gestures, motions and shapes in light. For example, his fourth neon piece, The Illuminating Gas, uses Marcal Duchamp’s The Bride Stripped Bare by Her Bachelors (1915-23) as a springboard to present his innovative and intuitive nature.
Taking inspiration from the spark in the flow of energy in conduits, circuity and choreology, the exhibition comprises of an amalgamation of pieces including the intersection of neon pieces, spinning palm trees and a sound sculpture and a Morse-code inspired lighting installation.
Every aspect of the exhibit is complete in a refined, superior aesthetic that has been influenced by film, music, literature and philosophy. As the visual impact of the collection focusses on how ideas can be communicated through different form, be it light, text or photography.
The whole exhibit opens up previously unforeseen elements of light and sound, from the Palm Trees perched atop of turntables to neon geometric structures which provide an illuminating artificial glow- they all represent Evans’ bright ideas.
Take a look at the collection below, and visit the White Cube Gallery, Bermondsey, up until the 15th of November to view Cerith Wyn Evans’ latest exhibit.
