Pop-up group show: Play

October 1, 2009 by Ellie

Marcel Duchamp and Eva Babitz in the Pasadena Museum, 1963ldhg v

Paradise Row and Prakke Contemporary proudly present Play, a 'pop-up' group show and program of performances and events themed on the subject of Play. Running from 9 October - 7 November at 50 Upper Brook Street, Mayfair. Visit by appointment.

"A happier age than ours once made bold to call our species by the name of Homo Sapiens. In the course of time we have come to realize that we are not so reasonable after all as the Eighteenth Century, with its worship of reason and its naïve optimism, thought us; hence modern fashion inclines to designate our species as Homo Faber: Man the Maker. But though faber may not be quite so dubious as sapiens it is, as a name specific of the human being, even less appropriate, seeing that many animals too are makers. There is a third function, however, applicable to both human and animal life, and just as important as reasoning and making - namely, playing. It seems to me that next to Homo Faber, and perhaps on the same level as Homo Sapiens, Homo Ludens, Man the Player, deserves a place in our nomenclature."

Johan Huizinga, 'Homo Ludens: A Study of Play-Element in Culture.'
