Exhibition opening reception: Thursday 30 May 6-8pm All welcome

Yva Jung is fascinated by planetary rhythms, the cycles of life and death and the stories we generate in life.  Monday Morning, her first UK solo exhibition, brings together photographs, video pieces and sculptures exploring the linguistic roots of ‘Monday’ meaning “day of the moon". Jung also examines notions about the moon, its phases and cycles and the parallel rhythms of female life.

Using fleeting and temporary forms, notably the natural phenomenon of morning dew, Jung examines uprooted-ness and loss through a profoundly poetic lens.

In advance of this exhibition, during a performance at Luton’s Mall in April, Jung bartered sculptures made from harvested morning dew for stories and experiences shared by passers-by.  Jung uses these stories as inspiration for a series of new works on paper, recording the transactions between the artist and her “customers”. An illustrated booklet inspired by this exchange will be given away to visitors at the closing event on Saturday 13 July.
