Neil Ayling Solo Exhibition - Flection - Oct 5th-Nov5th

Neil Ayling
Curated by Darren Warner
5 October – 5 November 2011

EB&Flow is pleased to announce Neil Ayling’s first London solo exhibition, Flection. Ayling’s interest in fragmentation informs both his sculpture and photography as he defines sculptural aesthetics of cityscapes through a visual and physical editing process. Ayling edits and manipulates imagery through a process of cutting and folding, flection meaning the resulting condition of something being folded or bent. Fragments of architecture are isolated to highlight their inherent sculptural compositions. They provide a snap shot of the whole yet occupy a new space separate from their origin...

Another large sculpture in the exhibition responds to the lines, shapes and colours found within graffiti. With the permission of The Hayward Gallery, London, Ayling installed blank hoarding at the Southbank Undercroft space for three months. During this time they were repeatedly covered with layer upon layer of graffiti. These boards were then subsequently used to create new 3D
sculptures employing Ayling’s trademark methods of extraction and dislocation.
