Nomadic curatorial project, Emalin is presenting the If in Ones Own Time group exhibition in Naples, opening July 10 and running to July 17.
Taking the form of an show that incorporates an event programme based around San Giuseppe delle Scalze, a church in the centre of Naples, some of the invited artists will give talks, tours, guides, and screen videos that relate to the overarching notion outlined in the press release that “the new begins in observations of the old”.
Included are works: ‘A walk with Antirrhinum majus’, a performance by Augustas Serapinas on the discovery of the wildflowers of San Giuseppe delle Scalze; a tour through the architecture of the Sanità district guided by Fabrizio Ballabio of artist collective, åyr; a library by BeckBooks and other contributions from several more artists including Rob Chavasse, Isabel Lewis, Hannah Weinberger and Maria Loboda.
Emalin have previously curated large group show Folly, that occupied an old stone building in Scotland known as the Dunmore Pineapple after the fruit it mimics, and the intimate installation, Honeymoon in Pickle Paradise in 2014 in a London hotel by London-based artist Athena Papadopoulos.
