Context Art Miami : Art Fair

4 - 9 December 2018

This December RHODES are delighted present a solo exhibition at Context Art Miami artfair during Art Basel Miami week; one of the busiest weeks in the artworld calender.

 

The exhibition called Triple Art Bypass will be an immersive installation of an emergency room operating theatre and consultation room by the contemporary artist and queen of all things felt, Lucy Sparrow

 

Comprising of the operating theatre where proceedures will be undertaken at scheduled intervals daily by the felt operating team and the consultation room where 'patients' (clients) will have the opportunity to view newly released works by Sparrow.

 

The installation by Lucy Sparrow aims to make a social commentary on both the UK & US health services and the polarity between the two.

The timing of the Sparrow installation is at such a time when never before has the NHS in the UK been under immense attack from the private sector. Austerity and the seriel mass underfunding at of the health service at government level, which is forcing the privatisation of the UK's national institution, is presented in the US against the backdrop of the US people wanting a more open and national health service with less dependancy on the huge private health care costs.

President Trump's continual calls for a repeal of the Obamacare bill doesn't help.

 

Triple Art Bypass discusses these overriding issues, but presented in such a fun and artistically creative way that can only be from Lucy Sparrow.
