In this current exhibition Angela Bulloch features two new works: Smoked Spheres and Night Skies. The first is in turn based on the work by Bridget Riley from 1964 called White Discs II and a series of black circles are depicted against the white surface of the canvas to produce an overall image difficult for the beholder to grasp. They are arranged in such a way that one never quite gets a hold on it, though it is obvious that the rhythm is carefully constructed by the artist. The second is grounded in computer generated images that reproduce a panorama of our galaxy from a view point far from Earth. Once again, Angela Bulloch shows her interest in this duality or contradiction between the apparent casualness of the emplacement and the evident intentionality.
