Kid Acne & Ema in France

Sheffield based artist Kid Acne has teamed up with Ema for ‘Unclear ground/ Terrain vague', an installation which is currently on view in Niort (Fr) at the Pilori Museum. The show has been curated by Winterlong Galerie and runs until the end of October.

‘Unclear Ground takes inspiration from creating something out of nothing and seeing beauty in the mundane. From derelict factories, to abandoned wastelands and disused railways – for the past 2 decades both Ema & Kid Acne have utilised these forgotten spaces to create their art, injecting them with a splash of colour and giving them a new lease of life. This collaborative installation mixes various media including painting, silkscreening and sewn fabrics. The title refers to the uncertainty experienced in creating a new piece of work – exploring the unknown to find something new. 

Combining influence from graffiti, science fiction and comic books, this exhibition invites us to explore the world around us, proving the age old saying – “seek and you shall find”.

The exhibition is running as part of an event called ‘Le 4e mur’ with other participants including Escif, Mr Jago, She One, O. Two. More info on the event here.
