UK based duo Kai & Sunny will be presenting a new body of work at Colette in Paris from Monday 29th August. My Eye On You will be their 1st solo exhibition at the gallery, following on from shows in London, New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
This new body of work shows further development in their original biro pen series, in conjunction with the exhibition the artists will release a new print edition, of which half will be available for purchase at the opening reception and the remaining online from the artists website HERE.
You know here at artbleat we love a good old bit of "Art-speak" so here is a nice paragraph from the press release that describes the pen peices in more detail:
"In both form and theme ‘Time’ is in the foundation of each image. The original pieces represent the shifting flow of time. The slow methodic process of building thin line upon thin line in colour creates a tension inside the compositions. The works are intense and powerful but the delicate nature of the lines creates a fragility, as if the structure would collapse if one were taken away. The new works show magnified and stylized drawings of natural occurrences featuring continuous tidal-like waves and intense sunbursts"
Part of the show continues their longstanding collaboration with Toydrum with a limited edition vinyl record box set and show booklet. Friends and peers have been asked to re-envision Toydrum's music in whatever way they see fit. Some artists have reworked tracks whilst others have covered their songs. The album sees exclusive collaborations with Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, Trentemøller, Frank Wiedemann, Pye Corner Audio and more.
You will be able to pick up one of the box sets from the gallery or HERE at the artists website for the sum of £40 plus postsge
