Pae White:

The core of Pae White’s practice is based in the desire to insert the domestic in the space of art, two worlds that in her practice overlap with playful and poetic vision. Her production allude to this constant oscillation between art and design, function and form, revealing a painterly, trompe-d’oeil quality that often confuses the real nature of their medium.

Since the beginning of her career Pae White has explored a variety of materials and techniques, formal elements being a central focus of her artistic production. Among her most iconic artworks we can mention her tapestries, mobiles, chandeliers, thread installations, neon installations. Her research develops with the study of different materials as aluminum, ceramic, clay, glass, marble, paper, porcelain and steel.

All of White’s works share an intrinsic duality, existing as both functional objects and sculptures. The duality is seen in the production of her work as well, whereby what seems manual, hand-crafted, is in fact the fruit of advanced mechanical technology.

Her work has been exhibited internationally in several solo exhibitions in venues such as San José Museum of Art (2019); Saarland Museum, Saarbrücken, (2017); le stanze del vetro, Venice (2017); Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2015); MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts, Wien (2013); Langen Foundation, Neuss (2013); South London Gallery, London (2013); The Power Plant, Toronto (2011) and many others.

She has participated to the NGV Triennial, National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne (2017); the Whitney Biennial (2010); the 53rd Venice Biennal (2009); the Prague Triennale (2008).
