Gregor Hylla and Yelena Popova
Friday 11 - Saturday 26 May, 12 noon - 6pm daily
Co-commissioned by Norfolk & Norwich Festival and OUTPOST
Norfolk & Norwich Festival and OUTPOST are pleased to present their first co-commission. Twofold is an exhibition bringing together the work of German-born painter Gregor Hylla with the Russian artist Yelena Popova. As well as providing an overview of the bold iconography of these dynamic artists, Twofold is an ambitious investigation into contemporary modes of painting and an arena in which Hylla and Popova’s work coincides: Hylla’s hallmark palette of saturated colour is a thrilling counterpoint to Popova’s fluid oval forms painted in soft shades on linen.
Both contemporary artists will have residencies in Norwich from April 2012, to produce new works, in a unique off-site exhibition space created especially for the festival. A programme of talks and film screenings accompanies the exhibition.
OUTPOST will also be presenting To Do by Emma Hart, a sculptural video installation at OUTPOST gallery, 10b Wensum Street, Norwich
