    Salon 63 | ‘Eros’ by Stasis

    Galitzine (formely Galitzine Mackenzie) will hold their fifth exhibition project Salon 63 in April 2018. Fourteen artists will be paired up with different hair & beauty salons along the number 63 bus route. Each artist will collaborate with the salons to create site-specific works that aim to include and engage each salons’ clientele and local community. For a sneak peak before next year, Galitzine is participating in the artist/curator led Sluice Biennial. Salon 63 participant Freddy Tuppen has created a special salon space conducive to enabling social interactions and discussions often inherent in salon culture. Over the Biennial the salon will be a site for professional beauty treatments, performances and work from a selection of our Salon 63 participants. ‘

    Eros’ by Stasis will be livestreamed from Salon 63 at 5.30pm Monday 2nd October.

    “A trio of neon pink swimsuits seek answers to the perennial problems of love and loss. Caught in the melodrama of Dusty Springfield’s ‘You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me’, they crawl their way to enlightenment or something more mercurial. Space becomes meat market as the soundtrack moves to darker realms, dragging the swimsuits into sinister dances and ritualistic debasement. Exploring the line between coercion and abandonment, enticement and repulsion, it all spells trouble in the not-so-straightworld of Stasis’ making.”
