The Sham Romance group exhibition is on at London’s Chalton Gallery, opening October 25 and running to October 29.
Picking apart the multiplicity of romance, the show features work and performances by Mariana Echeverri, Pennie Koliopoulou, Ulijona Odišarija, Hannah Regel, Joe Ridgeon, Victoria Sin, Madeleine Stack, Puck Verkade and Ruth Waters.
“What do we allow to penetrate us when dealing with love, loss and attraction? How do we play along with social norms and dynamics and do we still fetishise them once they’ve been brought to light?”
The opening night will also host performances by Harry Bix, Sarah Boulton and Soohyun Choi. There will be an evening of screenings on October 29, featuring ‘Pennie’ by Lola Clavo, ‘Pix’ by Antonio da Silva, ‘If You Did Not Exist’ by Theo Turpin, ‘Prosopagnosia’ by Katie Hare.
