The Artists’ Pool is a unique collective of international artists based primarily in London and Edinburgh, and their new exhibition for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe examines the number 8 and its significance as a symbol for the Infinite.

Often quoted in ancient texts, in this multi-sensory show, eight (of course) artists, with international backgrounds, explore ideas around infinity that resonate with them on a deeply personal level, even bearing an influence on their daily lives. Physical and sensual realms, natural cycles, dualities, empowerment, and the helical shape of the endlessly-looping strands of DNA within each of us, come together in a thought-provoking and fascinating show.

Check the Artists’ Pool’s website (see left) for details of a supporting programme of performances, talks and workshops throughout the show’s run.
