Valérie Kolakis & Florian Schmidt

Wed-Sat: 12-6pm

FOLD is pleased to present Previously Unthought of Things; a two person show by Valérie Kolakis and Florian Schmidt.

Valérie Kolakis is interested in the makeshift, the provisional and the ways in which we process and adapt to our environments. As we grapple with issues of social isolation and fragmentation that is reinforced through physical separation and boundaries, the work in this exhibition is a reimagining how we engage with the domestic space and the urban fabric around us.

Florian Schmidt constructs wall-related objects, in which he explores the relationship between space, material and color. Schmidt’s way of working reveals itself as a cyclical process of deepening thoughts; a cycle in which existing works reconnect with the dynamic of the working process, for which the factor of repetition appears to be decisive.
