Freddy Tuppen presented solo exhibition Sous Sol at London’s Soho Revue, which ran from May 6 through to July 31, 2016.
In the basement of the gallery, the London-based artist created a site-specific installation that converted a series of rooms into a nightclub, which will run until the end of the year. The mixed-media work incorporates architectural and furniture design, as well as wall-based embroidery and lighting.
The stools and benches are softened by upholstered beach towels and pink and blue hues flood the space. Tuppen scripted the design to “reveal the historical narratives of the building, as well as layering in his own fabricated fictions exploring the human relationship with escapism and hedonism.”
Tuppen’s recent exhibitions include Island Theory(2015) at London’s Jonathan Viner Gallery and Placeholder(2015) at London’s Store space.**
