Stuart Semple: Suspend Disbelief – October 16 to October 20.
Stuart Semple returns to London with a ground-breaking exhibition featuring a new body of work including paintings, sculptures and installations. The exhibition will encourage visitors to explore the suspensions of disbelief customary in works of fiction, but also those inherent in our everyday existence.
Artworks including Happycloud Room, an installation of floating smiling faces, Bloom, a projection of over 7,000 flowers and Bounce, a giant bouncy castle, will create a unique experience for each visitor.
Speaking about the exhibition, Stuart Semple said:
“Suspension of disbelief doesn’t stop at entertainment. It extends to our whole lives, especially in the West. I think we’ve suspended disbelief in the fact that we’re all dying. That’s universal. We’re all mortal, but it’s not a bad thing. Only by acknowledging the inevitability of death are we able to truly live.”
