Expulsion from Paradise

Bloomberg SPACE, London

For her commission at Bloomberg SPACE, Marks took over the rear gallery, investigating the spatial quality of the balcony area to present the latest installment in her adventure cycle – Adventures of Volitia: Expulsion from Paradise. She exploited a unique opportunity for her circular, abstract storytelling and combined eleven large, full-colour framed drawings with extensive double-height, black and white wall drawing forming a frieze around the atrium. In a representation of “The Fall” the lines of the drawing ran along the walls, ascending and descending, floating and crashing, mimicking the speed and movement of rushing water.
