Betwixt and Between | Gayle Chong Kwan | 02 August – 21 September 2014
Opening Event - Friday 5 Sept, 7pm - 9pm
Artist Talk - Thurs 18 Sept - 6.30pm, Food and Bar from 8pm
South Square Gallery is pleased to present Betwixt and Between, an exhibition by internationally renowned artist Gayle Chong Kwan. The artist will experiment with discarded and overlooked objects to create a new installation for South Square.
Visitors are invited to follow Chong Kwan in exploring the space between sleep, awakening, imagination and reality.
The development of Chong Kwan’s work often involves sensory activities, participative research, and historical or archaeological inquiry to create settings through which fantastical experiences can take place. Trainee Curator Charlie Booth says:
‘The multi-sensory landscapes Gayle Chong Kwan creates are beautiful and delicate in their creation. By unlocking the personal memory through the senses they offer a way for the audience to transcend everyday reality and access a more extraordinary realm.’
Treating the gallery as an experimental and exploratory site Gayle Chong Kwan installation will take the form of an unfinished and liminal forest, created using simple gestures as well as domestic and waste materials. Betwixt and Between will weave drawings, sculptures, and sound elements through the space, inviting visitors to partake in a sensory journey.
