Kimchi and Chips: Line Segments Space QUAD EXHIBITION

Dates: 9th December 2017 – 28th January 2018

Late Night Openings: Thursdays 11th & 25th January 2018, 5:00pm - 9:00pm

QUAD Gallery, QUAD, Derby DE1 3AS

Suitable for all. Entry is FREE!

QUAD presents the first UK showing of the mesmerising and immersive installation Line Segments Space by acclaimed Seoul-based artist and technology duo Kimchi and Chips.

An architectural web of threads spans a gallery space. It hangs abstract and undefined, a set of thin positive elements segmenting the dark negative space between. Dynamic imaginary forms are articulated into physical volume by the material of this thread, and the semi-material of the light, the visual gravity of the filaments occupying the space between.

A 2D canvas is reduced from a surface piece into a line segment, but then constructed into another dimension, a volume. Light creates contrast and order on the lines to articulate digital matter. Digital forms inhabit the interconnected boundaries of space, moulding visual mass,

The artists reference Picasso’s light painting, and Reticuláreas of Gego whose work offers a contemplation of the material and immaterial, time and space, origin and encounter and art and technology. Sound Design by Junghoon Pi.
