Listed Under Exhibitions Events

Opening this January 2024, 'Co-lack-ting' is a multi-disciplinary exhibition by visual artists Despoina Isaia and Salli Yule Tsingas, which portrays the duo’s contrasting habits of collecting and assembling in all its forms. Spanning two gallery spaces, 'Co-lack-ting' presents an immersive experience featuring sculpture, collage, painting, and print. It delves into the realm of memory, weaving together elements of fantasy, reality, trauma, and joy.

Isaia and Yule-Tsingas, both established artists with over fifteen years of individual artistic exploration, converge their distinct artistic practices at The Briggait as part of Wasps Studios’ arts programme. Their joint artistic endeavours explore a world of child-like objects and structures, each existing independently yet coalescing to evoke a profound sense of redemption amidst perpetual crisis.

At the core of their work lies the essence of the inner child, resonating with the maternal connection, remaining in a state of flux—a slightly chaotic fantasy allowing for potential metamorphosis.

Isaia shapes her work through traditional female skills of domestic life, the process of making, from hair, skin, to blankets, satin, leather, the cutting, suturing, filling and manipulating of hanging complex organic soft sculptures, shows its value through hardship. The passing of time is laborious and gives satisfaction. Repetition becomes a way in which to process the past, the present and a redemptive future. The evolving result of covering over, bandaging, suturing is healing.

Yule-Tsingas’ approach involves engagement with neglected objects, transforming the unwanted and abject into cherished embodiments of life. Her collection comprises diverse artifacts, from ancient feet to industrial remnants, all speaking eloquently about intricate personal and societal narratives. Through her artistry, she breathes new life into discarded entities, uncovering their hidden voices, charm, and beauty while resonating with the past, present, and an envisaged future.

'Co-lack-ting' promises a captivating exploration of transformation, resonating with the inner child, embracing the discarded, and redefining the narratives of objects. This exhibition invites art enthusiasts, collectors, and all those seeking an immersive artistic experience to The Briggait, where Isaia and Yule-Tsingas’ visionary collaboration awaits.
