LondonDesde el Salón (From the Living Room). Sol Calero selects from the Hiscox Collection
Luscious images of trees, flowers and seed-heads, vast ocean- and mountain- scapes, tropical maps and contested lands are presented alongside painted bright brick walls, open windows, sculpted chairs, rugs and jugs in this exhibition which is curated by Berlin-based, Venezualen installation artist Sol Calero.
For Whitechapel Gallery’s second public presentation of works from the Hiscox Collection, Calero has created a world entirely of her own, one that celebrates both the natural and the domestic realms and includes artists such as Pio Abad, Polly Apfelbaum, John Baldessari, Yto Barrada, Alighiero Boetti, Nathalie Du Pasquier, Annie Leibovitz, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso and more.
Calero’s display invites us to think about the act of collecting, about what we choose to surround ourselves with in our homes and the importance and presence of the natural world.
