HEMPHILL is pleased to share Julie Wolfe's inclusion in LACONICA: THE GLOW at Pamėnkalnio Galerija in Lithuania. The exhibition was curated by Agnė Jonkutė and is on view from October 6 - November 4, 2023.
The idea for the exhibition came from a rethinking of the strict black/white monochrome of the 2021 Laconica Biennial exhibitions, which led to the contrasting choice to reflect on the meaning of colourfulness in the language of minimalist art...
Furthermore, the exhibition is imbued with meditations on colour as a source of light. Colour and light function here not only as formal elements of an artwork, but also as almost physically tangible objects, pulsating more or less intensely or absorbing the stream of photons. In the works of the exhibition, colour is purified to an abstract idea, conveying symbolic or associative values, with the aim of immersing or transporting the viewer into alternative luminous realities.
The Glow is one of the events of the Laconica biennial of visual art. The Biennial was conceived as a space and a platform for artists who develop minimal/minimalist ways of thinking, using such keywords as reduction of form, reserved narrative, abstractness, aesthetics of silence, etc. The events of the 2021 Laconica Biennial were interested in the links between monochrome and minimalist poetry. This year's exhibitions focus on the field of phenomena of colour and olfactory (scents) art.
