Copperfield, London is pleased to present MANTEL, a guest project from the artist run space CACTUS (Liverpool), curated by Doug Bowen.

The exhibition centres around the mantelpiece – a familiar domestic structure which, other than for practical reasons, is used for the display of objects, images and memories with a commonality of collection and presentation. I’m very drawn to the occurrences in mantelpieces – the zoned contrasts/comparisons between the presented objects in shape, form, texture and history (etc.). Mantelpieces are talking points for visitors that consist of: heirlooms, cards/ invites, relics, portraits of newly born relatives, portraits of past relations, pottery, vases, flowers, candles, tinsel (seasonal) and so on… In this way, I’m proposing to display the work of artists, which in the majority of cases come from solo exhibitions – their own contexts/ histories/ narratives/ techniques/ materials/ processes/ etc. – and reshown in a shared context. Possibly not dissimilar to having a keepsake from a trip on holiday, whereby there is a further reading of the work.
