About the event
The outcome of a year long dialogue between two artists Amelia Critchlow and Evy Jokhova, ‘Mimesis' – from Greek mimos imitator or actor, source of mimeis – to imitate, features work that contemplates interior social order as inherited, transitional, neutral, challengeable, idealised and inevitable. Approaching ‘mimicry’ as a visual metaphor for a greater society, the artists invite the viewers and participants to engage with ideas of social consciousness, placement and perception, through an immersive installation that collages images, paintings and objects, drawing on their similarities and visual etymology. Highlighting historical constants that have remained parallel and unchanged from pre-Antiquity to the modern day Critchlow and Jokhova open up a conversation on the hierarchy of space and (self) image, from domestic to social and public.
