Gallery EXIT is pleased to present "Spotting the light onto a light"\, the third solo exhibition of Sarah Lai with the gallery.\n
The exhibition is a continuation of the artist's interest in the little ga ps residing between the representation and the interpretation of objects. D omestic objects such as a desk lamp\, a steam rack\, a bottle of make-up re mover and a lump of rock sugar are devoid of their usual context and appear as oil paintings and videos.\n
The objects painted in a pastel p alette do not seem to function other than displaying the sculptural quality of light. The artist's performance on video then activates these objects i n an antithetical manner. In "Milky yellow cube"\, a block of butter is emp tied of its association as food. In its accompanying video "How to cut butt er into a perfect cube"\, Lai measures\, cuts and smooths the yellow block\ , presenting it as the most malleable of clay.\n
Futile yet mo numental\, the represented objects sit both on top and below the pedestal\, assuming autonomy and at the same time indulging in the personal\, private and intimate experiences we cast onto them. The works reflect human projec tions onto objects that have lost their ontological significance and they a re now open to new meanings.
