So there in Number Eighteen

December 10 – 11, 2011

So there in Number Eighteen – the first line of Ted Hughes’ poem about the house where the exhibition is set. In contrast to the memorialised house and inhabitants of the poem, these seven artists point towards something more present and continuous, to life in number eighteen as it is now.

So there in Number Eighteen is Parlour’s first exhibition in the United Kingdom, curated and hosted by Susie Clark in the house she shares with friends in Bloomsbury, London.
