In the heart of East London and for the last few weeks of summer, the Long White Cloud Gallery
welcomes you âInto 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, âInto 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, âInto 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
âInto 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, âInto 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
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.
