Through an investigation of ecological interactions, Grey to Blue focuses on the exploration of colour and its spatio-temporal dynamics, to reconsider its perceptual boundaries in search of new possibilities. A series of abstract interactions are presented through sculptural, photographic, moving image and sound based works, to draw attention to the role of colour in the living world, while highlighting ecological loss and absence.

Working through a reductive process of visual abstraction, allied with shifting sound textures, what was familiar becomes strange and haunting, creating spaces where one might feel disoriented, where lines dissolve and surroundings blur. Yet, simultaneously, something new might just reveal itself – new spaces where human agency is de-centred and the entanglements across time and space become visible.

Yulia Kovanova is a Siberian-born, Scotland-based artist. Her practice currently focuses on the investigation of ecology of colour and its dynamics, the ideas of spatio-temporal borders and our perceptual boundaries. She often takes an interdisciplinary approach, working across a range of media, including moving image and sculptural installations, and through collaborative practice.
