“The Pale Rose of Wool” is a photo exhibition by April Lee for a sound piece entitled The Setting Sun by Japanese musician Fjordne, set in a parallel universe inspired by the novel of the same name by Osamu Dazai. Encapsulating stillness, nostalgia, and the lyrical rhythm of quotidian familiarities, this collection of images seeks to explore the fragility of quiet reflections welling up from a hidden world that exists between the modern sentiments of “The Setting Sun” and the original novel set in 1947.

April is an artist and photographer, and one-half of music project aspidistrafly. She also curates the burgeoning Kitchen. imprint and has exhibited in Japan and Macau. Using the medium of film photography, April quietly articulates her own microcosm of the familiar in the everyday.

The exhibition opens 1 August at 4pm and will remain at Polymath and Crust (86 Club Street) until 31 August.
