#COMMUNEPRESENTS is a series of residencies and events spotlighting and showcasing an array of inspirations, love affairs, dialogues, rumors and catalytic liaisons that have stimulated change within the #COMMUNEEAST landscape.
Presenting a moment of explosion in the Frieze calendar: This group of #COMMUNEEAST artists take residency at the Ace Hotel’s Hoi Polloi to roll their dialog into the night. Existing within this realm for the art throng come celebrate, encounter and experience their presence in force. This East London hub will run for the duration of Frieze, with two main activations on the Wednesday and Friday nights.
"Come watch, taste, dance, get wet and be #commune-al"

In collaboration with filmmaker, James Cooper, two previously unseen works, one a collaborative animation and the second a short film, both being screened live as visuals within the architecture of the space, including sheets, bodies, and ceilings all embracing the eye line of the viewer.
The films together explore the boundaries of mark making within the abject and fetish, a figure is seen in submission taking Myatt's ink blind to what he is delivering. The animation then perverts these lines and explores the aesthetics within them, through their movement within the penetration of the human body.
The space is active with Communal tables which will be covered in illustrated cloths, traced with fluid lines and writhing contortions from Myatt's pen, designed to be soiled by the diners.
James Messiah's words will appear throughout these live public scrawls given a chorus to the night.
Accompanying publications are available on the night to partner and reinforce the presentation.
