Into The Woods exhibition
A copse of branching fronds and colourful leaves, Into the Woods is an exhibition of tree-like kinetic hanging structures – the first solo show of critic and curator Phineas Harper. Experimenting with brass, bronze, steel, aluminium, painted card, acrylic, acetate and many varieties of timber, Harper plays with balance, shadow, translucency and fragility, creating mobiles that move under the slightest breeze continuously altering the relationship between observer and setting.
Free collection from Host of Leyton on Monday 13 March (12pm to 8pm) or £15 postage and packaging (dispatch in week following exhibition).
Phineas Harper is a critic and curator based in London. Their work explores folk traditions and post-growth cultural possibilities and has been exhibited at the Royal Academy, London School of Economics and San Mei Gallery.
