LOSS, REPETITION AND THE EVERYDAY is the third in the annual series of Without Compromise exhibitions curated by Freeny Yianni of Close Ltd that feature artwork by new and emerging artists.
The featured artist for the 2018 show is Shizico Yi, who has recently graduated with a PhD in Fine Art from UEL (University of East London). Her work aims to explore artistic obsession through repetitive documentation of the domestic and the everyday. Yi uses photography, films and large-scale installations to articulate her relationship to memory.
Dr. Shizico Yi recently completed her PhD at University of East London in the subject of Loss, Memory and the Everyday. She is a London based artist, working with installation, film and painting; her work aims to explore artistic obsession through repetitive documentation of the domestic and the everyday. Yi uses photography, film, large-scale installation and 2D images (painting, drawing and print) to articulate her relationship to time and memories that have been lost through the passing of time. In the process of relentlessly recording the everyday, invites the viewer to a voyeuristic experience into her daily practise and evokes a melancholy and sensitive metaphor for the repetitious and the ordinary; elevating it as something spiritual and disciplined.
PRIVATE VIEW on Friday 18 May. 5-7pm. Please join us for an exclusive opportunity to view the exhibition prior to the public viewing dates and to meet the featured artist and exhibition curator.
19 May – 7 July 2018
