The exhibition’s title is taken from a poem by Emily Dickinson, which evokes the limitlessness of the human mind. The full line reads: ‘The brain - is wider than the sky’. In their different ways, the artists in WIDER THAN THE SKY respond to our vertiginous reality. The works they present are mostly electronic – video and installation. Four of the artists live and work in Korea – Hellberg (Sweden), Klega (UK/Czech Republic), Morley (UK), Rafael (Belgium), and their works draw specifically upon their experiences of Korea. Walker & Walker and Grace Weir are from the Republic of Ireland, and this exhibition is a result for their visit to Korea in 2016.
