At Home Salon @ Marcelle Joseph Projects, May 14 – Jul 9

16 May 2016

Marcelle Joseph Projects will host an exhibition, At Home Salon: Double Acts at the curator’s home in Ascot, opening May 14 and running July 19.

The At Home Salon will feature the work of 14 artists, in pairs, across each of the seven rooms of Joseph’s house, which have each been organised by a different London-based curator or gallerist. It is the third edition of a larger project subtitled Double Acts —the first being Material Girls and their Muses again featuring pairs of work by Jesse Darling and Andrea Crespo, for example.

Artists featured in At Home Salon are: Rebecca Ackroyd and Alex ClarkeCornelia Baltes and Will Sheridan JrBea Bonafini and Lindsay Lawson, who aqnb interviewed last year, Emma Hart and  France-Lise McGurn, Gabriel Hartley and Ann Hirsch, Sarah Maple and Zadie Xa, Andrew Mealor and Alex Rathbone.

Some of the curators involved are Arcadia Missa director, Rózsa Farkas and Leopold Thun, co-founder of Emalin.

The show invites speculation around why practices are put together, influence, legacy and continuation, and what —other than aesthetics —can be at the core of a partnership, collaboration or presentation in general. Perhaps there also lies in the show’s questions the shadow of a network that is not horizontal but one that filters down in more specific shapes.
