INSIDE: A Two Temple Place & Thorp Stavri Exhibition: Feb 23
Josephine Chime, John Costi, Jack Evans, Chloё Louise Lawrence, Gabriela Pelczarska, Joshua Phillips, Sabrina Shah, Yambe Tam, Sam Williams and Yui Yamamoto
Developed from a Summer 2022 research residency at Two Temple Place, this four week exhibition showcased 10 contemporary artists working in sculpture, installation, painting, photography, VR and film. Each artist produced a brand new body of work in response to the eccentric architecture of Two Temple Place and its complex historic narratives, using the artists’ responses to the building and its ideological challenges to shape work for its rooms.
The research residency enabled them to consider their own processes and gave time to engage with wider creative practices.
The artists presented work as part of Inside were: Josephine Chime, John Costi, Jack Evans, Chloё Louise Lawrence, Gabriela Pelczarska, Joshua Phillips, Sabrina Shah, Yambe Tam, Sam Williams (in collaboration with Hollie Miller) and Yui Yamamoto.
The exhibition was conceived and curated in partnership with Two Temple Place, a neo-Gothic mansion in central London which offers year-round cultural and community programmes.
This exhibition was presented as part of a 2023 spring season, through which Two Temple Place worked closely with curating partners to showcasing contemporary work by under-represented artists in their magnificent Grade II listed neo-Gothic building.
