School of Art Senior Shori Sims has work included in “A Tiny Bit of Fire,” on view at Warbling in London, UK, September 7-11. For the exhibition, she will be showing a remix of Dara Birnbaum’s “Transformation/Technology: Wonder Woman.”
In the 1600s, a scintilla would refer to a tiny bit of fire, a spark produced by striking together two stones, a small fiery particle thrown off from a fire. In this present moment, a scintilla can describe a small quantity of almost anything, from a scintilla of seasoning to a scintilla of hope. “A Tiny Bit Of Fire” incorporates a series of works made by 31 artists over the last couple of years which have in common their scale, presenting a tiny excerpt of each artist’s practice. Although each piece within the exhibition varies in concept, this exhibition endeavours to reveal how each small artwork can ignite a fuse, uncovering unlooked-for resemblances between works from artists based internationally.
