Candice Lin: Pigs and Poison at Spike Island
Tel: +44 (0)1179292266
A major new commission by artist Candice Lin that expands her ongoing research into marginalised histories, colonial legacies and the materials that link them. Pigs and Poison includes flesh-like sculptures, a virtual reality animation, and a huge medieval trebuchet that launches cannonballs made of lard and bone black pigment directly at the gallery walls.
Pigs and Poison is commissioned by Spike Island, Bristol; Govett-Brewster Art Gallery, New Plymouth and Guangdong Times Museum; and is part of the West of England Visual Arts Alliance programme, supported by Arts Council England.
The exhibition is accompanied by a richly illustrated catalogue, with contributions from Jih-Fei Cheng, Robert Leckie, Lisa Lowe and Shani Mootoo, as well as a conversation between the artist and Alvin Li.
Free, donations welcome.
