Light & Breath is an exhibition of work by prominent American artists Kiki Smith and Seton Smith. The exhibition is set to open at 3pm, May 20th, and will be the pair's first in mainland China.?
Kiki Smith's printmaking and video work is deeply imbued with a sense of spirit, transcending convention. The artist fuses perceptual phenomena, remodeling the modes of what is known and recognized, taking biological metaphor to explore questions faced by individuals inhabiting a complex reality. With her unwavering, augmentative focus upon the features of architectural structures. Seton Smith's black and white photographs allow private narratives and scenes from these overlooked spaces to manifest in images plucked from reality.
Appearing alongside one another, the artists' works project explorations of and an inward sensitivity to the fundamentals of both human reality and the mind in the form of highly emotive imagery, impelling us to reflect upon our own individual circumstances.
The exhibition will share the projects of these two highly influential artists and offers free entry to members of the public until its close on July 20th.
