Isle of Wight artist, Joanna Kori, winner of the 2015 Quay Arts Open competition, is in the middle of hanging work for her latest exhibition Future reCollections opening in the West Gallery on Saturday 21 January between 1–3pm (all welcome).
Jo will be presenting an exhibition of “six tableaux, forming a response to previous and current uses of the Quay Arts building”.
She’s has been working towards the exhibition for the last year, creating more than 1,000 pieces for it.
Constructed from gum-strip paper and linseed oil, see the history of Quay Arts come alive in the gallery through theatrical suspensions and digital intervention; the pigeons, the beer barrels, the food and the music, all representing a romantic vision of the past, present and future.
Joanna Kori describes the dynamics of making her installations as a “pendulum movement between casting and drawing with the gum-strip tape – an archaeology of touch.”
The exhibition runs until Sat 1st April, but there are also a number of activities and events taking place over the coming weeks related to the exhibition.
