For this year's FLUX, the multi media artist Sally Buchanan will be constructing an enticing feast of colour just across the road from Tate Britain as part of FLUX exhibition. 'The Inevitable' will consist of over 220 metres of Organza and 25 yards of Crinoline fabric not to mention the scaffolding frame- this work is certainly not to be confused with a big frivolous petticoat!.

Wandering inside you will immediately be immersed in a mini version of another world and as you walk through a simple series of 10 interlinked hexagonal compartments; the changing colours will cast a spell and you will have joined 'The Inevitable Experiment'. Linger awhile and maybe for a moment you might find yourself inside a cell of your own skin, looking out from within and then in another zone perhaps you will be on the edge of the universe, looking in. On dodging the silent burns of the infra red and ultra violet light, beyond which, even here, permission is denied.

Under another membrane you could be a chloroplast forever compelled to make sugar from sunshine. Or simply enjoy the calmness; the experience of pure hue and bathe in the mood and the association of your own favourite colour. 'The Inevitable' filters of perception are shaped like giant living cells, where a trick of light creates a specific environment a momentary mirage of existence. The experience mimics our electromagnetic spectrum specific view and by definition defines our confines and sense of self. The alignments in time and space will channel your associations and whilst occupying your conscious mind, the artifice will facilitate a strange yet comfortable familiar sense of space thereby influencing your belief and satisfying your curiousity. The artist invites you to venture inside.

Sally graduated from St Martins in 2007. Her interpretations of time, space and the environment play with contemporary Theoretical Physics and the Psychology of Perception and she makes work to simply ask - “What If…..?” She is a London based multi-media artist who combines conceptual principles with craft and a dash of wit to make installations, sculptures, embroidery and land art. In 2013 she won the first Roy Rasmussen Prize and in 2015 she was shortlisted for the Premio Combat Prize (Italy). Her latest large scale installations include : ‘The Anthropocene’ an interactive Platform Project made for AAF Battersea in March 2017, ‘The Cosmic Latte Lullaby’ an open air interactive multi sensory Cosmic Weather Machine for last year’s FLUX and in November 2017 she worked as an Artist in Residence for the National Open Art Competition and created ‘The Bargehouse Timetunnel’ at The Gallery @OXO Tower Wharf on Bankside. She is a member of The Free Painters and Sculptors Group.
