Mat Collishaw, Tracey Emin & Paula Rego: At the Foundling

March 15, 2010 by Ellie

27th January – 9th My, The foundling Museum, London.

This exhibition brings together these three remarkable artists for the first time. Each artist is internationally known for responses to pain and anguish associated with aspects of childhood, motherhood, abortion and loss. Now exhibiting together in the unique and intimate surroundings of the Foundling Museum, the artists have engaged in a dramatic visual dialogue relating to the story and themes of the Museum, which memorialises Britain’s first home for abandoned children.

Tracey Emin’s series of discarded baby items cast in bronze and originally shown as part of the Folkestone Triennale in 2008 make extraordinarily powerful and autobiographical references to loss. Equally provoking are Mat Collishaw’s presentation of a photographic series depicting Indian street children with eighteenth-century backdrops, including a lightbox image and a new snowdome work and Paula Rego’s life size figures of waif- like girls and babies depicting the violation and fall of young women.

This unique exhibition continues the legacy begun by William Hogarth in the eighteenth century inviting leading artists of the day to show new work at the Foundling, raising awareness of society’s failings towards vulnerable children and mothers.
