Vivienne Griffin (b. 1975 Dublin, lives and works in London) contributes two new ink drawings, one a baroque confession box from a church in Palermo, the other a light- filled, tiled shower. Both works depict spaces of solitude, self-reflection and cleansing. One is airy, geometric and light, seen from inside while the other is impressively decorated and seen from outside, conjuring a dark, onerous interior. (Presented by Bureau, New York)
Wojciech Bąkowski (b. 1979 Poznań, lives and works in Warsaw) presents two works of charcoal and pencil on paper, ‘A visit to a room that is no longer there,’ 2021 and ‘Hallway Light,’ 2020. Bąkowski depicts isolated, interior spaces of the home, charged with surreal and dream-like apparitions. In his work, the disordered state of the mind projects into and meshes with the mundane spaces where bodies linger. (Presented by Stereo, Warsaw & Bureau, New York)
