We were captivated by Cerith Wyn Evan's exhibition at White Cube Bermondsey on a recent visit.
Featuring suspended neon sculptures, one of which emitted breath-like sounds which reverberated throughout the exhibition.
Drawn to the linear lightforms you are instantly immersed into their inticate beauty. On closer inspection you can see the flickering blue filaments of the neon tubes - glowing like fireflies.
The expansive gallery space invites the viewer to walk around and take in the sculptures from multiples angles both close up and far away, giving a new perspective wherever you stand.
"Three neon works which are suspended from the ceiling take their form from the codified and precise movements of Japanese Noh theatre (Neon forms [after Noh I, II and III], all 2015). Relating closely to the artist’s earlier sculptures which translated diagrammatic flight paths into neon, these new works present a maze of complex lines that trace the trajectory of alignments, gestures, folds, orientations and footsteps; transposing and transforming energies into both material charge and visual form." - White Cube
On until 15th November 2015.
