XPOSURE Circle Culture Gallery, Hamburg

XPOSURE was Yeo’s second solo exhibition with Circle Culture Gallery and the first time he has presented works in Hamburg. The exhibition was the latest and final installment of the Leaf Works series, all created using his unique and celebrated form of pornography collage.

Several new backgrounds were created for the exhibition, including synthetic, Hollywood-pink skies and religious looking gold-leafed icons. Among the new pieces created specifically for the show was a major gold-leaf heart painting entitled Planten un Blomen, named after a park in Hamburg which connects the city to the red light district, St Pauli.

This exhibition saught to challenge the way imagery is read by society and how it is affected by it, as well as continuing to explore Yeo’s fascination with representations of the human body and identity.
