DKUK is pleased to present its first group show (Not) Every Thread Ties Down / Your Split Ends Are Showing, guest curated by Leo Cohen and Lucy Rollins.

About

Healthy, Feather, Triple, Tree, Long, Deep, Double Y, Baby, Taper, Thickening, Offshoot, White Spots, Knot, Incomplete Split, Right Angle, Crinkle — “I found the Mother of split ends today”.

DKUK is pleased to present its first group show (Not) Every Thread Ties Down / Your Split Ends Are Showing, guest curated by Leo Cohen and Lucy Rollins. The exhibition responds to DKUK's hybrid environment with a newly commissioned installation of works exploring visual, semantic, abject and ontological ambiguities of hair and “split ends”.

Referencing Andreas Eschbach’s The Carpet Makers (2006), set in a dystopian low-tech primitive world where the main industry is the manufacture of human hair carpets, the show realises a speculative exhibition of artworks in the Emperor’s palace that never truly comes to fruition in Eschbach’s dystopian sci-fi novel.

Artists include: Zoë Paul, May Hands, Sophie Jung, Merike Estna and Byzantia Harlow

The exhibition will include an expanded text by Leo Cohen and Lucy Rollins.

Supported by Arts Council England.
