MASSIMO DE CARLO GALLERY: VSPACE EXHIBITION
Ubu Gallery is please to take part in a new exhibition held at Massimo De Carlo Gallery. An entirely virtual exhibition, How They Met Themselves: Folie à Deux is curated by Piotr Uklański and explores the various kinds of partnerships and couplings between an artist and their muse. Famous examples throughout art history include Leonora Carrington and Max Ernst, Unica Zürn and Hans Bellmer, and Dante Gabriel Rosetti and Lizzie Siddall.
Though the term “folie à deux” may have connotations of madness and obsession, the exhibition subverts this meaning and delves into these relationships as an exploration of their complexity and psychic intensity. The exhibition can be viewed online here.
