ISABEL + HELEN: IN ORBIT

July, 2021 (London, UK) – The exhibition, In Orbit, will open at Saatchi Gallery, London on 13 August 2021 and run until 5 September 2021. In Orbit, by design duo Isabel + Helen, is a series of tonal paintings produced by contraptions that have been assembled by hand from industrial materials. This collection of imperfect circles and the tools used in their creation, explore the space between mass production & the creation of unique art works and in doing so, questions our relationship with machines. The exposed processes and mechanics are as much a part of the project as the finished paintings. The assembling and activating of the humble machines are left to the laws of physics once the contraptions are set in motion.
