ighlights include a giant cave-like installation made of 30,000 wax candles which will hang from the gallery ceiling, and a 3m² wall drawing entitled ‘Ceaseless Doodle’ which depicts the contours of all the world’s borders. The Lines of Thought exhibition brings together a number of disparate works that prompt thoughts about how the simplicity of line is the core element of so many and often unpredictable forms of artistic expression.
