Sep 20 - Nov 11, 2017
The Showroom presents 'Everything we see could also be otherwise (My sweet little lamb)', a contextualisation and rethinking of the Vienna-based Kontakt Art Collection. The exhibition forms the epilogue of a long-term project which originally took place in Zagreb from November 2016 to May 2017, curated by What, How & for Whom/WHW in collaboration with Kathrin Rhomberg.
 
Taking selected works from the Collection as its point of departure, including seminal pieces by some of the most prominent artists from Central, Eastern and South-East Europe since the 1960s, including historical works by Mladen Stilinović, Július Koller, Valie Export, Geta Brătescu, Edward Krasiński and Sanja Iveković, the exhibition stages an interplay between these and other historical, contemporary and newly produced works that interpret and critically examine the collection.

JEWYO RHII & JIHYUN JUNG : DAWN BREAKS
Dec 5, 2017 - Jan 27, 2018
Private view Mon Dec 4 6.30pm - 8.30pm
Dawn Breaks is an ongoing project by Jewyo Rhii (b. 1971, Seoul/New York) and Jihyun Jung (b. 1986, Seoul), who have been collaborating for the past two years. The project consists of multiple sculptural works set up in the gallery space as a moveable collective theatre in which narratives and performances are drawn from conversations.
 
For their first production of Dawn Breaks in the UK, Rhii and Jung will create a theatre of moveable, machine-like sculptures at The Showroom using found materials such as wood, scaffold, wire, sheets of MDF and metal. Interested in forms of repetition in story-telling, and the way in which some anecdotes become ingrained in memory while others morph into new fictions each time a story is re-told, Rhii and Jung will connect to local stories through a series of gatherings with residents in the neighbourhood. The sculptures will be activated in the exhibition through interactive performative sequences creating a series of intertwined narratives.
