The Breeder is excited to present the group show – ‘At Home He Is A Tourist’, installed in the gallery’s playroom. The exhibition features an array of small pieces by an internationally and stylistically diverse group of artists who invite the viewer on a whimsical journey through a picture-postcard art-land that errs toward the monochromatic and melancholic. Each work promises a miniature world of contemplation, seen as if through a window. As birds, bats and fantastical creatures flit amidst urbane cartoons and city scenes, figurative is placed beside abstract, concrete against emotive and myth alongside reality. Denying the works of original context, the show strips the viewer of his “period eye”, so that he becomes a tourist in the gallery.
Artists in the show: Markus Amm, Athanasios Argianas, Marc Bijl, Lizzi Bougatsos, Martin Boyce, Matt Connors, Kate Davis, Iris van Dongen, Nan Goldin, Stylianos Kontomaris, Jim Lambie, Bjarne Melgaard , Alan Michael, Tracey Moffatt, Clare Rojas, Daniel Sinsel, Yannis Skourletis, Socrates Socratous, Christiana Soulou, Gert & Uwe Tobias, Scott Treleaven, Jannis Varelas, Vangelis Vlahos, Clare Woods.
