About

In the heart of East London and for the last few weeks of summer, the Long White Cloud Gallery welcomes you ‘Into the Wild' where the imagination reigns over the mundane and where nature reclaims the city through art. In an exhibition of 13 local and international artists working in an array of disciplines from photography to sculpture and video art to assemblage, ‘Into the Wild' promises to nourish the senses and provide a portal to a world where the limits of reality and experience are explored. With work from artists such as Sooim Jeong, Eva Masterman and Katie Elder whose respective paintings and sculptures cross the boundaries of form and identity by drawing the viewer into a creative act that asks them to question their perceptions of the world around them, ‘Into the Wild' becomes a space for a playful experimentation with the rules we live by on a day to day basis whilst revealing the strange details we take for granted in even the most mundane moments. ‘Into the Wild' also presents a colourful contrast to the urban environment in which it is set. Examples of Pablo Delgado's playfully subversive street art is showcased alongside the work of Lizzie Cannon who creates intricate models of organic matter and situates them amongst the infrastructure of our metropolitan lives. In bringing a variety of artists who explore and critique the circumstances of our urban landscape together, ‘Into the Wild' establishes itself as a parallel to the city and its concrete limits, where the vibrancy of the natural world reveals the manmade restrictions of our modern lives. The in house collective are also proud to announce that Hapsburg Absinthe will be sponsoring the private viewing on the 30th of August and cocktails will be available from when the doors open at 7pm. Absinthe has inspired the work of artists from van Gogh to Picasso and will certainly provide the perfect enhancement to what is going to be a night that celebrates the fantastic, the strange and the enchanting.
