Assessing astronomy and our place within the cosmos from an unexpected viewpoint is a central theme in Perfume as Practice SS19; my upcoming solo show at Lumen Crypt Gallery, London.
For the most part, this is achieved through perfumery and, specifically, comparing the intangible qualities of scent to the intangible qualities of space to see if our experiences of one inform the other. However, with the exhibition will also contain some visual work that also utilise astronomy, such as this piece, entitled Microscopium:
Microscopium comprises a set of constellations painted onto glass plates, which can then be looked at through a microscope. The piece seeks to rethink our relationship with the cosmos through placing it within the confines of a small installation, thus rendering it domestic, tangible and personal.
Perfume as Practice SS19 will run at Lumen Crypt Gallery, London, from 4th – 7th April with a Private View on 4th April from 6.30-8.30pm. Hope to see you there!
