Kai & Sunny’s third solo show at Stolenspace just got an extra week’s extension to its run and now is open until Sunday 3rd July. AM stopped by last week to take a look at The Flower Show and meet up with the design duo. Their trademark large format monochromatic screenprints sit well in the industrial styled surroundings of the gallery with the stark tones of the images accented by a silver glitter within the screen-printing ink. As the title suggests, nature is again the focus of the show, and the work explores both abstracted and figurative elements of the form of flowers.
The exhibition is accompanied by a short story entitled The Gardener commissioned by Kai & Sunny from author David Mitchell, who the pair have designed book covers for in the past. Get an audio reading of the story on The Guardian’s website here. For those not fortunate to have the space for the large format works, a lovingly produced box set of letterpress prints is also available as part of the exhibit. Much smaller in size, the prints carry a delicate relief in the image and are quite beautiful to behold.
