Leo Gabin opening tonight at White Cube Mason’s Yard.
Info here.




White Cube is pleased to announce an exhibition of paintings and films by Leo Gabin, as part of the Inside the White Cube programme. The Belgian trio, made up of Lieven Deconinck, Gaetan Begerem and Robin De Vooght, investigate the materials and rituals of contemporary culture by pulling together endless amounts of online amateur video footage to create a new kind of narrative. Leo Gabin are interested in how American pop culture is filtered and interpreted through online viewing; how young people use the media to capture their surroundings and express themselves. Using imagery and videos from both public and private spheres (social networking sites), the resulting works evoke feelings not only of despair and sadness, but also hope and joy.
