“I belong to this” (Group Exhibition)


Huxley Parlour (UK)

14 Sept - 16 Oct 2021

Curated by Justine Kurland

I belong to this brings seventeen artists together around themes of self and family, private rites and communal ritual, along a continuum of becoming. The title of the show is from Ariana Reines’s poem “Save the World”, and can be read as a declaration of identification, a promise of solidarity, or a blurring of self into multitudes. These artists mark an intractable this. The camera points, more like an ear than an index finger, in the direction of what is felt rather than seen and to those invisible threads that hold us together.’ – Justine Kurland
