Is Art Lonely?
Filippos Tsitsopoulos considers his relationship with the art objects that surround him in museums and gallery spaces, imagining what they might say if they could speak, and what moments of history these artefacts have inhabited? Within these video performances we see a masked Tsitsopoulos engaging in a dialogue with these sculptures.
21 September – 8 October 2017, The Muse at 269 Gallery, 269 Portobello Road, London W11 1LR.
Richard Taylor’s audio, video and performance works are infused with his writing practice. While his work often starts from an autobiographical basis, the artist and member of a-n’s online content team often uses grammatical constructs to remove himself from texts. For this exhibition, Taylor presents the audio piece Aliases for a reason and a new performance, Enchantment for LelyAnyLevel. Performances take place at 2pm and 8pm during the opening event on Friday 22 September.
22-24 September 2017, No.35, 35 Muirhead Terrace, Newmarket, Bannockburn, Stirling FK7 8JB.
