Valerie Jolly, Infra-Thin at Alexia Goethe Gallery.
The exhibition displays Jolly’s ethereal sculptures; these fragile casts of everyday objects hold a translucent quality found only with precious artefacts or fading memories. These delicate casts are created with sticky wet tissue paper, once dried they carry the form and markings of the original object. These colourless and weightless replicas produce a vaporous trace. The sculptures hold a ghostly still, capturing timeless motion in an exquisite way. This remarkable exhibition is a must see, go and witness these incredible pieces of everyday life in an incredible light leaving a lasting impression.
