4 – 12 September 2009
Don’t miss the opening of littlewhitehead‘s exhibition, for which the Glasgow-based duo have radically transformed The Royal Standard‘s gallery space during their three-week residency, working in response to experiences and found items from their time in Liverpool.
littlewhitehead utilise strategies of humour, fantasy and desire mixed with fear and anxiety in such as way as to make their sculptures and installations both attractive and repellent simultaneously. Exploring the nature of voyeurism, their work reminds us that witnessing is not neutral or impassive; in a mixing of public and private space, vision and violation converge.
littlewhitehead have exhibited both nationally and internationally, most notably in Bloomberg’ New Contemporaries at the Liverpool Biennial 2008, and have had solo shows at K-Gallery, Milan 2009 and Gimpel Fils, London 2009. They are also taking part in Newspeak: British Art Now at the Hermitage, St Petersburg in October 2009.
After visiting The Royal Standard we recommend the preview of Ben Rivers’ new
exhibition A World Rattled by Habit, at A Foundation, 7-9pm (bar open until 11pm).
