Kehinde Wiley: Ship of Fools

The Levinsky Gallery | 29 September 2020–24 January 2021

When confronted with large bodies of water, a duality is often experienced: we are in fact at once attracted to but also frightened by the unknown.

New York-based artist Kehinde Wiley's mode of enquiry, and his interest in the portrayal and modulation of power will be explored through the works on show, which also include paintings and sculpture. The exhibition aims to investigate the ways in which the artist masterfully uses traditional representation to challenge power relations and art historical norms. Curated by The Box in partnership with The Arts Institute and Royal Museums Greenwich.

Silence Between Waves is a film performed by a cast of three exceptional Singaporean dancers shot on Torbay's scenic Berry Head.  

Taking inspiration from the headland's views and environment and with a soundscape featuring recorded local stories by Torbay's Sound Communities. Silence Between Waves frames a conversation through movement and sound, connecting two countries and places across the sea by reflecting on home and far away. This film features a powerful international ensemble as a metaphor for how our oceans and dance share worldwide connectivity and sentiment.

Premiered on 7 October 2020, now available on YouTube
