Pae White is an American artist best known for her large-scale, site-specific interventions. Working with a variety of media including aluminium, yarn, vinyl, birdseed, porcelain, paper and thread, White’s work explores her interests in design, craft, architecture and elusive, fleeting moments.
Her most recent work, Too much night again, which she describes as “a self-portrait of sorts”, has overtaken the main gallery space at the South London Gallery on Peckham Road. Using 48 kilometres of yarn (yes, 48 kilometres, we didn’t misspell that!) she has created an immersive environment that captures her experiences with anxiety, insomnia and Black Sabbath.
REcreative got EXCLUSIVE behind-the-scenes access to the installation of Too much night, again and had the chance to interview Pae to find out more about the work. See the interview and time lapse here.
