Our second SUMMER MARATHON takes a revitalised approach to the traditional ‘group show’, presenting 4 artists in back-to-back solo exhibitions (in lieu of one group show) over the summer. Through this unconventional approach, each exhibiting artist is able to stage their envisioned solo show over a two-week period.
Starting with a hyperrealistic charcoal drawing on paper, French artist Valentin Van der Meulen than begins a physical process of obfuscating, erasing, or deconstructing his imagery until what remains is a drawing that is part performance, part conceptual artwork, part happening. The work challenges pre-established codes and modes of visual representation, dislodged from reality and something that questions its own value and worth.
