The White Cube Gallery has three locations, two are located in South London, United Kingdom and one is in Hong Kong. This exhibition I went to is the main White Cube Gallery located in Bermondsey, London. (for more contact information, please scroll to the bottom)
There were two artists works exhibiting at the White Cube Gallery in Bermondsey. One is Cerith Wyn Evans and the other is Robert Irwin last year. They both have lights installations but the composition and design of their pieces are very different to the other.
Robert Irwin is one of the pivotal figures in recent American art and his exhibition is called 2x2x2x2. This exhibition brings together fluorescent works, transparent acrylic columns and a diptych. The juxtaposition of the different materials created an interesting energy and atmosphere between them. I especially enjoy looking at the acrylic sculpture by this artist, because you are able to see different objects in focus from different angles of viewing at this piece.
Cerith Wyn Evans is a Welsh conceptual artist. His work take form through the reflection on and interrogation of the world about us. For this exhibition, his works focused on ideas around the flows of energy via material. He uses lights to show signs of immaterial conduits, circuitry and choreology. I especially enjoy his work, although some of the light sculptures was a bit too bright to look at if I view the work for too long, over all, it was interesting to see how the artist used lights to form different shapes and lines out of this material and the result of it.
This exhibition is showing till the 15th of November this year, which is in 2 weeks! I would recommend going there for an evening visit after work or a weekend visit along with Borough's Market nearby for lunch.
