Seventeen Gallery will be hosting two concurrent exhibitions – a solo show by Olivia Erlanger and a group show titled Morphing Overnight – at their London space, both running from February 26 to April 18.
Erlanger’s solo show, titled Meat Eater, begins with a transcript between a TL and an MH. “How should it begin?” asks TL. “It should begin with ‘do you remember’,” answers MH. From there, the two characters meander through what could be an art space, discussing symbolism and subjectivity, the “architecture for a history”, ending full circle with “I don’t remember.”
The Morphing Overnight group show – which invites six artists, comprised of Julieta Aranda, Dora Budor, Debora Delmar Corp., Yuri Pattison, Josh Harris and AIRBNB Pavilion with Emanuel Röhss – is curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini.
The opening on February 26 will be followed by an afterparty by AIRBNB Pavilion and Life Gallery and hosted by [ space ] called Poppers in Dalston.share news item
Announced with a look into the bleak reality of modern bourgeois living, a press release follows the exhibition title with text illustrating the story of one Knut and his fiancee Beatrice as they traverse an awfully Bret Easton Ellis-esque landscape of violent nothingness.
Just as Knut’s “Jacuzzi of French sparkles” of Dom Perignon 1996 flows and his “black Volvo limousine V90S” glides, Röhss paints a bleak picture of the upwardly mobile middle that rings like Knut’s iPhone 5SX into a void of emotional emptiness: “I cannot discuss this right now – I’ve got business to pursue!”
