The Arka Group @ Space In Between, Oct 1 – Nov 14

29 September 2015

The Arka Group creative collective opens a new solo exhibition called Votives for Art Licks Weekend 2015 this week, running at London’s Space In Between from October 1 to November 14.

The collective—made up of Ben Jeans Houghton and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau —has a habit of dipping in and out of media; producing films, creating sculptures and composing sound works about fringe science and philosophy.

Their new show, Votives, comes as the result of an intensive month-long period of collaboration and research into the “sculptural possibilities of non-traditional materials”.
