Blind Cut, a group exhibition curated by Jonah Freeman and Vera Neykov at Chelsea’s Marlborough Gallery, explores the themes surrounding fiction and deception using work from 1919 to the present day.
Belgian-born Marcel Broodthaers, who was an impoverished poet for decades before he embraced the financial gain of visual art, acts as a thematic anchor. Broodthaers light bulb moment came in 1964 after he embedded books of his poetry in plaster and sold them.
An accompanying catalogue (from 27 Jan) features contributions from literary tricksters James Frey and JT LeRoy.
Blind Cut runs through 18 February.
