3 exhibitions in one at white cube bermondsey
Why just see one exhibition when you can see three at the White Cube Bermondsey? The gallery is currently host to three different artists across their north, south and 9x9x9 gallery spaces. The first space is taken over by Cerith Wyn Evans’ huge neon installation ‘Neon Forms (After Noh IV)’ which is suspended from the ceiling and almost reaches the floor, combining single lines of light amidst chaotic overlapping assemblages. The north gallery space compliments the first show, as Ann Veronica Janssens’ sculptural works similarly play with light and perception; including halogen lamps, venetian blinds covered in gold leaf, reflective and mirrored surfaces and a spillage of glitter across the floor!
The final (and largest) south gallery space is dedicated to Damian Ortega which again includes large-scale sculptures and installations alongside two-dimensional pieces. Orange infographics are pinned to the white walls, and within these two-dimensional works are a series of industrial and mechanical sculptures including a coliseum created from concrete blocks in concentric circles, and the clever ‘Deconstructing time’ sculptures which comprise the inner workings of a watch enlarged to an enormous scale and separated across the floor or stacked in free-standing towers.
