Mighty Small, 2013

Mighty Small, 2013

Artwork on an immense scale often enthralls and consumes, whereas smaller works captivate on a much more intimate level, drawing the viewer in for closer inspection. This exhibition will not simply be concerned with works that are little, but works that defy the very notion of small meaning less or denoting an absence. It will present work that is compact, but is in every way just as powerful, notable and spectacular.

OF LIGHT, 2012

OF LIGHT, 2012

‘OF LIGHT’ is the debut exhibition curated and mediated by YOLK Collective. It is an exhibition centered on manipulations of light, luminosity and electricity. This is a broad theme encompassing works that conceptualise notions of light, and explore visual elements of contrast and chiaroscuro, while also encompassing works using lights or mediums of a luminescent nature.
