Danish artist Wendy Plovmand (b. 1975) makes striking installations combining mural painting, printmaking and objects that investigate the impact of digital technology on the making and sharing of images. Heavily inspired by French psychoanalyst Jaques Lacan, Plovmand's work about the digital realm as an irrepressible force draws parallels between Lacan's autonomous, shape-shifting matter of the 'Lamella' and the internet with its relentless production of new information. For Wet Paint, Plovmand transforms architectural photographs and found images into digital abstractions, translating them into carpets and printed canvases that make an unsettling interior decoration within the gallery.

Wet Paint coincides with several exhibitions in London looking at artists' investigations into digital processes, and follows on from Plovmand’s participation in the 2016 BNL Media Arts Festival at MAXXI, Rome.
