Opening reception: ‘Matthew Day Jackson. Pathetic Fallacy’

  • Fri Jan 18 2019, 06:00 PM

Please join us for the opening reception of ‘Matthew Day Jackson. Pathetic Fallacy’. The title for Jackson’s exhibition is a literary term used to describe the attribution of human emotions onto inanimate objects in nature. This is the starting point for the artist’s investigation in Somerset, where Jackson has been living with his family as artist-in-residence at Hauser & Wirth Somerset since August 2018. His continued investigation into society’s relationship with its natural environment haunts the exhibition, which is punctuated by collaborations with his family and the local community. Please note, there will be a shuttle bus running between Godminster Car Park in Bruton and Hauser & Wirth Somerset from 5.45 – 8 pm. This is a free event, no booking necessary.
