Rachel Howard at the Italian Cultural Institute & the Jerwood Gallery

March 14, 2017 by Mary

Rachel Howard’s first work to combine painting and sculpture is included in Sette Opere per la Misericordia or Seven Works for Mercy - an exhibition curated by Mario Codognato at the Italian Cultural Institute, London.

Howard’s work Controlled Violence (2015-2016) was acquired for the collection of the Pio Monte della Misericordia church in Naples, following the fourth edition of Sette Opere per la Misericordia in 2016. The exhibition’s title derives from Seven Acts of Mercy, the title of the famous Caravaggio painting, also housed in the Church, alongside which contemporary works, including Howard’s, were sited.

The curator Mario Codognato asked artists to respond to the themes of the seven works of corporal Mercy: to give water to the thirsty, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned and bury the dead. Other participating artists include Antonio Biasiucci, Roberto Caracciolo, Piero Golia, Anish Kapoor, Henrietta Labouchere and Olaf Nicolai.

Sette Opere per la Misericordia (Seven Works for Mercy), is at The Institute of Italian Culture – 39 Belgrave Square, Belgravia, London SW1X 8NX – from 15 March 2017.

2015

Also opening this month, Rachel Howard’s work You Can Save Me will be on view as part of Look Back Now: Jerwood Gallery is 5. Aquired for the Jerwood Collection, the painting was part of her 2015 solo show At Sea; a signficant body of works which drew parallels between the sea, memories of childhood and ideas of being adrift.

Jerwood Gallery – Rock-A-Nore Rd, Hastings TN34 3DW – from 15 March until 21 May 2017.
