‘I am creating a sort of anticipation in thought, a premonition that something could happen; the thought of how we might react to living with the potential darkness that is subconsciously growing within us. In this increasingly exposed world we live in, the ability to know and anticipate a state that is evolving within the self is more crucial than ever.’ Christine Ay Tjoe, 2018

White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Indonesian artist Christine Ay Tjoe at Bermondsey. Titled ‘Black, kcalB, Black, kcalB’, it explores the idea of darkness and features large-scale oil paintings and drawings on aluminium plates. ‘The reality is that darkness is part of human nature’ Ay Tjoe has said. ‘If we create a distance between it and the self, treat it as something that can be calmed, made docile, be reshaped, freed yet part of ourselves, it is not just the enemy but an eternal life partner.’
