Never Ending nor Beginning was an exhibition by Yelena Popova. The title describes a circle, a shape whose form is so perfect that it is unpunctuated by edges, corners or faces and is simply a singular point extended in perpetuity. Round canvasses are stacked, performing carefully balanced tableaux that capture a singular moment like a memory. Delicate layers of translucent colour build up, recording the artist's fleeting gestures long after they are gone.

Picnic Picnic was set up by David McLeavy and Pippa Cook to offer supportive residencies to critically acclaimed contemporary artists. Picnic Picnic was based within a traditional British terrace house in Sheffield, UK.
