The Round Manual arrives as an eternal return, re-visiting old ideas and concepts in pursuit of its own tail. It brings no new knowledge, repeats what is already familiar, and stutters its sentences. A tide table; a muscular spasm; a cybernetic loop; a circular logic. Each artist graduated from the RCA in 2012 and all have made new innovative work identifying with the show’s encircling title.
Show with E. Gossling, J. Rayner, and M. Zaharia
Sofie Grevelius creates a world of signs, symbols and objects that appear familiar but are not quite what they seem. She finds her inspiration in the many shapes, forms and colours that animate and demarcate our built environment, from road markings and signage to physical fixtures such as railings and doors. By a process of subtle modification, she turns these everyday reference points into something altogether more elusive and perplexing. Her colourful prints and three-dimensional objects remind us of everyday urban experience, but also hint at the complex inter-relationship between autonomy, dependency and control.
Grevelius did her BA at Central St Martins and graduated with an MA in Fine Art Printmaking from the Royal College of Art in 2012. She lives between London and Kungshamn in Sweden.
