Pae White describes her latest work at the South London Gallery as a “3D textile supergraphic installation piece”. I’d say it’s like walking into an enormous Spirograph pattern.
Miles of acrylic thread are wrapped around nails to spell out the words TIGER TIME and UNMATTERING on the walls – and then extend across the gallery. For visitors it’s like wandering through a vast geometrical spider’s web.
From a distance you get the impression of red and black, but up close you realise there’s blue, purple and pink too. Apparently the palette was inspired by Black Sabbath’s Master of Reality album, which frightened Pae White as a young child.
Too much night, again, runs at the South London Gallery until 12 May 2013.
