Augustas Serapinas @ Emalin, Sep 27 – Oct 29

26 September 2016

Augustas Serapinas is presenting solo exhibition Housewarming at London’s Emalin, opening September 27 and running to October 29.

Run by Leopold Thun and Angelina Volk, the show will open the doors to their new and first permanent space after two years of nomadic projects that moved around the world. To coincide with the exhibition, the Vilnius-based artist will also perform ‘Jõusaal (Gym)’ as part of London’s Frieze Art Fair live programme everyday from October 5 to 9 at the Live Platform.

Serapinas’ practice is concerned with the phenomenon of objects and spatiality and is “invested in recomposing socially engaged spaces in order to foreground and problematize the assumptions that shape them.” He recently exhibited  Dusting the Grounds (2016) as part of at London’s David Roberts Art Foundation residency program and Double Bind (2015) at Vilnius’s Rupert.

2 December 2015

A joint exhibition between Stefania Batoeva and Adriano Costa, titled Tia Deth, is on at 50 Rochester Place in London’s Camden area, opening December 3 and running to 17.

As part of the itinerant series of shows organised by Leopold Thun and Jasmine Picot-Chapman called  Emalin, the exhibition follows the aforementioned artists’ collaborative work produced during a stay in “wooden shack” TwoHotel in Brazil.

The “artists’ guesthouse” was  constructed by Swiss artist Fabian Marti and is located in Piracanga ecovillage on the Bahia state coast. The work of the Bulgarian Batoeva and Brazilian Costa will be transferred to a 20th century garage in Camden.

See the FB event page for details.**
