Skelf is a virtual project space, accessible to anyone, everywhere.

Rokoko by Will Pham is the third piece in a new collection of themed exhibitions on Skelf, launching in July 2021. Each season (comprising of four new virtual exhibitions and a podcast released over a six-month period) will explore themes that feel incompatible with an online experience- firstly ‘Movement’ which began in May 2021, then ‘Gesture’ in October 2021 and finally ‘Touch’ in April 2022.

Each exhibition has been created specifically for Skelf, working with artists whose practice often relies upon a physical encounter, and reimagining their work immaterially to see what further possibilities are presented. Will Pham is a London-based artist who has collaborated with sound designer Rob Szeliga to create a new virtual performance.

The first exhibition in our movement series, 'Bubbles Together' opened in May and was created by Corali, a leader in dance created by artists with a learning disability. This was followed in June by Summer 21 is burning by artist and dancer Laura Rouzet.

Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau will complete the series with a new work launching in August. A podcast by Mark Beldan will explore the themes of each of the works in the Movement series in more depth and will be released in September.

Existing entirely online since 2016, we have presented work by over 120 artists and writers on our virtual platform. You can view these works in our archive. This project is supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
