" Yarli Allison - Art


Studio 5, Slade Show 2017, London, UK

Under this installation there are six independent works that forms a poem:
1) .....Baby You Can Go Anywhere,
2) .....Only If We Know How To Share This Buoy.
3) .....And I Wish You Pluffy Pluffy,
4) .....While Touching Some Far Away Objects.
5) .....For Now, All I Have Is Me And My Body.
6) .....Then We Could Share These Red Buoys.

Imagine you've washed up to a shore, found a cave to shelter in.

What material can you find? How do you make use of them? What are the things that may sink you? Do you still value privacy? What are your desires? Where do you belong?
