London gallery Arcadia Missa is welcoming a new year of exhibitions with the Eloïse Bonneviot-led group exhibition, The Meditative Relaxation Cycle, running January 31 to February 15.
Featuring 11 artists, including Ilja Karilampi, Aude Pariset, Juliette Bonneviot, the FourfiveX collective and others, the show explores the influence of our tools, –iPads and tablets specifically –in mediating perception while commodifying ‘natural’ states. Each artist was invited to contribute six digital sketches, performed in a contemporary re-appropriation of Surrealist Automatism and drawing on its essential elements of “meditation, drawing, and the artist’s ‘hand'”.
