Lights, Glitter and Play Time
With Frieze Week approaching, it's the time of the year not to skip an overdue gallery visit and explore what hot picks of contemporary art the dealers prepared for this October. Opening today, White Cube at Bermondsey, the larger minimalist space of the gallery presents works of 3 contemporary artists: Cerith Wyn Evans, Ann Veronica Janssens and Damian Ortega.
Without further ado here are some the highlights of my visit, the works are on display until 12th November.
Following the grand appearance of ‘Forms in Space…by light (in time)' at Tate Britain this summer, Welsh conceptual artist Cerith Wyn Evans light installation of dancing neon forms greets the visitors in a separate space in one of the first halls.
Shifting away from materiality of objects, Ann Veronica Janssens art focuses on the viewers perception and brings a sensory experience. Using colour and light it invited visitors to immerse among the variety of mediums the artist used to achieve an illuminating journey through her hall.
The third hall presents works by Mexico City based artist Damian Ortega with show titled ‘Play Time'. Interestingly he began his career as a political cartoonist and then shifted towards working with everyday objects to create incredible large scale installations.
The exhibition is open for public from 27th September '17 until 12th November '17
