Mathew Gallery is welcoming Villa Design Group for a retrospective-like show titled One Blow In Anger (Evidence 2011-2014) and running at the NYC space from its opening night on January 8 through to February 22.
The show at Mathew NYC comes as the first presentation by the design trio – made up of Than Hussein Clark, James Connick and William Joys – and features a range of photographic works, new sculptural pieces, and hand-drafted technical drawings.
Following in the vein of their absurd(ly good) VDG Manifesto in the SALT. Manifesto issue, the design group “pictures the scene of collaboration not as the site of collegiate bonhomie, but psychosis”, and the archival exhibition is introduced “not as the site of potential, but the grounds for murder”.
