GUIA BERTORELLO: NUMEN 17.07 - 8.08.2021 | LONDON SW959EG


NUMEN is a latin word indicating the ‘spirit or divine power presiding over a thing or a place’: the show explores moments of fleeting emotion and spirit enabled by a communal experience of beauty, adornment as a personal ritual, a quiet contemplation of numinous objects and Curated by Underground Flower \\, NUMEN is multidisciplinary artist Guia Bertorello’s first solo show, investigating their practice through incarnations in wearables, moving image, sound and sculpture. A portion of the space will be dedicated to a visualisation of process and research, as well as presenting work from Guia’s graduate project and a short film in collaboration with image maker Matthew Esselen and DOP Ben Leggett. The physical work will be mirrored in an online platform to engage Underground Flower’s vast offsite network.
