Zoe Dorelli lives and works in London. She is an artist, curator and co-director of Dark Matter Studio, which was set up in May 2012. Exhibitions include Anatomical Space, Dark Matter Studio, London, 2013, New Lexicons of the Dark, Hoxton Gallery, London, 2011, Alchemical Reactions, Cafe Oto, London, 2011. She studied MA Sculpture at Wimbledon School of Art (2000 -2002) and BA Painting at University of Brighton (1994 -1997). For ‘Beguile the Night’ Dorelli has drawn on her fascination for ancient alchemical diagrams and imagery whilst setting it alongside contemporary knowledge of particle physics and the origins of the universe or the ‘Big Bang’. The fusing of these two languages opens yet another chapter in a long circumambulation of the night, darkness the unconscious and unknown.
