V.O Curations is very pleased to present ‘Clear out the wounds closest to the sun’, a solo exhibition by recent artist-in-residence, Josephine Baker. Incorporating standardised industrial materials as well as natural elements such as Dover chalk, oak and pine, the show contemplates the fluid vernacular of London’s organic and built landscapes, and in particular, the ecosystem of building sites and their various materialities. The exhibition will run from 9 September until 7 October 2021 at 56 Conduit Street, W1S 2YZ.
