☰pa●○pa☴ Exhibition Preview

You’re invit­ed join a pre­view evening of our new exhibition,☰pa●○pa☴ by Rae-Yen Song

☰pa●○pa☴ is Rae-Yen Song’s first solo presentation of work in the south of England, and brings together existing and new artworks incorporating drawing, sculpture, costume, props, video, family collaboration and performance.

Encompassing the themes of fantasy and fabulation, this multidimensional exhibition invites visitors to explore Song’s world, and imagines a new character: a voyager from the multiverse that continues to grow through Song’s creative practice. The character is an incarnation of Song’s father, who has been instrumental in its formation. It draws on the visual language of role-play video gaming, and is imagined as a shape-shifting figure inspired by Taoist notions of continuous change. The character functions as part avatar, part deity.

The exhibition features with a mesmerising new moving image work developed specifically for this landmark show, created in collaboration with Song’s father and the University of Portsmouth’s Centre for Creative and Immersive Extended Realities (CCIXR). These works are accompanied by a series of new drawings, influenced by ancient Buddhist manuscripts, illustrations from Dante’s Divine Comedy and Yokai Manga.

From 5:30pm we invite artists for an extra half an hour to take advantage of an opportunity for networking. Whether you live locally or further afield pop in to meet other artists and make new connections or catch up with peers already known to you. Port Coffee will be selling alcohol and soft drinks throughout the evening.

Tickets for this event are free and can be booked on art tickets
