Fading Songs From The Wood
October 19–November 15, 2013
LOYAL is pleased to present Fading Songs from the Wood with eight new works by Till Gerhard. This is Gerhard's second solo exhibition with the gallery.
Leave the window open when you go, bring a blanket don't you know. Till Gerhard goes on a quest, seeking high and low in the highlands and lowlands, asking for us the question: why do people relate and why are we detached? Back in his studio in Hamburg he answers it in 8 new ways.
Live performance at the opening reception by In Gowan Ring, who made the sound track to Till Gerhard's film project The Fairy Trail.
