EVERYTHING WE SEE COULD ALSO BE OTHERWISE (MY SWEET LITTLE LAMB)
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.

Dec 8, 2017 - Jan 27, 2018
Private view Thu Dec 7 6.30pm - 8.30pm
The Showroom presents the first UK iteration of Dawn Breaks, an ongoing project by two Korean artists of different generations: Jewyo Rhii and Jihyun Jung.
 
The project consists of multiple sculptural works set up in the gallery space as story telling devices, creating a moveable collective theatre in which narratives and performances are drawn from conversations. At The Showroom this installation will see existing kinetic sculptural pieces from the project combine with newly produced works created using found materials such as wood, wire, sheets of MDF and metal. Working in a new way Rhii and Jung will connect with the local area, inviting participants from The Showroom’s neighbourhood to activate the works as miniature theatres, as they become vehicles for personal and collective stories.
