As part of Condo, a collaborative exhibition by 36 galleries across 15 London spaces, Emalin is pleased to present a group exhibition with works by Evgeny Antufiev, Nicholas Cheveldave, Melvin Edwards, The Grantchester Pottery, Daiga Grantina, Jeffrey Joyal, Kiki Kogelnik, Matthew Lutz-Kinoy, Fabian Marti, Daniele Milvio, Amanda Ross-Ho, John Russell, Michael Sailstorfer and Will Sheridan Jr.. Gregor Staiger is showing works by Shana Moulton.

Conventionally the face is taken as a mark of the self, as self-presence and the seat of individuality that enables identification and relation with others. To test these notions through disfiguration, fragmentation, and absence reframes the stakes of faciality on subjectivity and perception. This group of works complicates the face as more than mask or performative disguise, looking instead at the way these material constructions set in motion the mechanisms of recognition, the search for a discernible human form.
