Event description

Description

Andromedan Sad Girl is the first major collaborative exhibition by artists Florence Peake and Tai Shani. Through ambitious new sculptural works and wall paintings, the artists will create an immersive and imaginary site of a lost pre-symbolic civilization.

In creating these new works, Peake and Shani are interested in exploiting the fluidity and speculation of lost civilizations and their mythologies. They will take an archaeological excavation as a point of departure to imagine and represent a non-hierarchal pre-historical civilization.

The installation, which will transform Wysing’s gallery in its entirety, will privilege sensation; sculptures will be formed of voluptuous fabrics and will incorporate flocking techniques to create soft and sensuous objects that can be touched. Using multilayered elements, including sound, the exhibition will transport the visitor to an entirely coherent alternative reality.

Commissioned by Wysing Arts Centre and supported using public funding by Arts Council England, with additional support from the Henry Moore Foundation and The Elephant Trust.
