The Mosaic Rooms are pleased to present the first public solo exhibition by artist David Birkin, bringing together a series of works centred around issues of censorship, spectatorship and the legal and linguistic frameworks underpinning war.
Reflecting on not only the failure of images, but also the failure of truth and the manipulation of legislative language to suit political expediency, Birkin’s research focuses on the use of indefinite detention and targeted killing in the “war on terror” and the contrived ambiguity of political and military rhetoric.
Duration: 16 January 2015 – 28 February 2015 (Tuesday – Saturday, 11.00am-6.00pm)
Location: The Mosaic Rooms, 226 Cromwell Road, London, SW5 0SW
Birkin’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at The Courtauld Institute, The Photographers’ Gallery and The Saatchi Gallery, London; the Solyanka State Gallery, Moscow; MoMA PS1’s Rockaway Dome and the Whitney Museum’s ISP exhibition, New York.
