“He took me to a bar full of Sirens” is a sculptural installation of a new series of vividly colourful resin and clay works by LUISA MÈ, and is the culminate project in the first year of HER London. The Italian-born artist duo have previously attended the artist residency at Bocs, Cosenza, Italy, and exhibited their debut show "Look at me!" at T293 gallery in Rome. Their works clash with what would seem like a natural field of visual reality, breaking down the boundaries of perception through their alarming kaleidoscopic vision. The heightened colour ways almost vibrate, being both alien and alluring, there is a promise of sensuality but also danger, a connection to a world that feels alien. This subsides, and the forms reveal an uncomfortable familiarity and closeness to the hidden depths within our own psyches. A recess usually only accessed through altered states of consciousness, a realm of desires and unrealised possibility.
