Join us for the opening night of new exhibitions by Sriwhana Spong, Paul Simon Richards and Nicholas Wright.

Ida-Ida is Sriwhana Spong’s largest exhibition to date outside of her native New Zealand. The exhibition includes a series of sculptures based on the traditional Balinese gamelan and a new film, shot in and around the artist’s ancestral home in Bali, Indonesia.

London-based artist Paul Simon Richards presents Quasi-Monte Carlo (2019), an ambitious new video work exploring patterns of randomisation and their role in the production of an image.

Spike Island studio artist Nicholas Wright presents two bodies of work produced over the last 30 years; his ‘mouse art’ produced in the old McArthur’s warehouse – the former home of Artspace Bristol before the move to Spike Island – and his ceramic wall pieces.

 

Performances during the exhibition preview: Friday 5 April, 7pm

Sriwhana Spong is joined by long-term collaborators, art collec­tive Uniform and dancer and choreographer Benjamin Ord, for performanc­es using instruments and a score from the exhibition.
