A sequence of glyph-like forms reverberates throughout Alida Sayer's second solo show at Marsden Woo Gallery. Extracts from the vocabulary of an unknown language, perhaps, or moments of human thought and activity crystallized into material fragments?
Comprising Korean hanji paper, cast metal and digitally animated video works, this upcoming exhibition draws upon an immersive experience of contemporary South Korean culture during a research residency in spring 2015, as well as a recent encounter with the archeological sites at Pompeii and Herculaneum, in order to consider ideas surrounding the contemporary relationship to historical ritual as well as the linguistic rhythm of recurring forms.
