AboutLos Angeles-based artist Pae White merges art, design, craft and architecture through site-specific installations and individual works which defy expectations of a variety of techniques and media. For her South London Gallery exhibition she creates a mesmerising installation in which vast quantities of coloured yarn span and criss-cross the room to create supergraphics spelling out words that can only be deciphered by navigating the space. Inspired by a period of insomnia and consequent reflection on the transience of our existence, the letters and words immerge and dissolve depending on both our physical relationship to them and the relative weight of the overall aesthetic experience.
The exhibition is supported by Vicky Hughes and John Smith and The Henry Moore Foundation. With additional thanks to greengrassi, London.
