LondonThe Blazing World
S|2 London presents The Blazing World, a diverse group exhibition of artworks which draw upon themes of science-fiction, utopia, ritual and the fragility of human hope and existence.
The Blazing World is the third in a trilogy of group exhibitions at the gallery where a work of literature forms a conceptual framework for an exhibition and is accompanied by a new edition and reprinting of a story. The last group show in this series, The Blazing World, takes its title from a forward-thinking seventeenth century fictional text of the same name, written by Margaret Cavendish, Duchess of Newcastle. A part of the original text will be reprinted in S|2’s accompanying exhibition catalogue. The artists featured in the exhibition are Stano Filko, Peter Hujar, Marguerite Humeau, Charlotte Johannesson, Clementine Keith-Roach, Arik Levy, Charlotte Prodger, Paul Thek, Tishan Hsu, Nanda Vigo and Anna Zemánková.
Please note that S│2 London will be closed to the public from 23 December 2019 – 3 January 2020. The gallery will re-open for the new year on Monday 6 January 2020.Courtesy of the artists and Sotheby‘s S|2 Gallery, London
