Using the notion of folds as a point of departure, this exhibition brings together 13 artists to uncover the aesthetic, conceptual, ethical and sociopolitical implications of thinking through folds.

About

Folds features works of 13 international and UK based artists who have responded to the theme “folds.” The full line up showcases an array of work which includes drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, installation and moving image.

Folds are pleats of fabric, wrinkles in the skin or carefully folded strands of DNA in each of our cells. Folds are earthly or watery, creases in a landscape or ripples at the surface of the ocean. Folds bend straight lines, they provide texture to the smooth surface of appearance. Folds follow the curves of time, they testify to its passing and its opening to endless possibilities.

Using the notion of folds as a point of departure, this exhibition sets out to uncover the aesthetic, conceptual, ethical and sociopolitical implications of thinking through folds. Activating the interplay between surface and depth, inside and outside, exposure and concealment implicated in folds, this exhibition explores the multiple ways in which the concept can be mobilized as a tool to deconstruct binary oppositions.

The different interpretations of the theme will be deployed within the exhibition space, crystallizing into an immersive topography. Resonances, echoes and dialogues will take place between the various perspectives provided by the artists, and folded within one another the works will form a dynamic ‘texturology.’ 

Private View: 22nd of November 6-9pm. 

A series of events and activities will take place alongside the exhibition.
