Join us Thursday 24 March at 18:00pm for an exciting tour of ‘Four Bedrooms With An En Suite, A Garage & Garden In A Nice Neighbourhood’ by artist R.I.P. Germain on the evening of his solo show’s closure at 56 Conduit Street.

Created during his residency at V.O Curations, the show is accompanied by an audio-guide, Plot Armour, produced with artist Deborah-Joyce Holman. Each work surfaces specific instances of Black value systems in conflict with dominant white societal norms, and takes a forensic approach to their construction. These conflicts are physicalised as sites or scenes, populated by objects that serve as both indexes of and metonyms for the intense power dynamics at play. In delineating the cruel endgames involved in the consumption of Black culture under conditions that remain compliant with white hegemony, R.I.P. Germain continues his investigation into the mechanisms of power and oppression, and the disastrous consequences of these processes for Black self-determination and ultimately Black life.
