Chris Rhodes Hotel Mermaid Club 30.03–20.05.17

Chris Rhodes, Hotel Mermaid Club
30.03–20.05.17

Information

Hotel Mermaid Club draws its focus on people and the ‘self-made landscapes’ they create. Although the human presence within a conventional portrait sense is non-existent, a figurative representation is systematically suggested through objects and colours.

Making obvious and extreme what otherwise goes unnoticed; the work unfolds as a ‘cabinet of curiosity’ instinctively collected across eight countries, from Europe to South America. Allowing for anthropological observation, the subtle differences and similarity between these countries are questioned. Stereotypes are undoubtedly challenged within depiction of these daily ornaments. With nostalgia these iconic references define the faded glamour of a trivial aesthetic.
