Structured Through Movement
12:00pm - 5:00pm
Following the success of their 2018 exhibition, Simon and Guillaume Klein are returning to the architect-designed interior of One Paved Court with their latest show, Structured Through Movement.
Their work explores the relationships between the manipulation of materials to foster a sense of movement between figures and objects. Whether between the multiple layers of paint on a flat canvas portraying two figures embedded in embrace, or a composite of industrial materials, heated and moulded into abstract forms, this exhibition invites its viewers to contemplate the processes that inform Simon and Guillaume’s works.
