Jonny Briggs Trompe L'oeil

 

FLORILEGIA is a group exhibition featuring photographic works by Goldschmied & Chiari, Fabio Zonta, Laura Letinsky, Jonny Briggs, and Sinaida Michalskaja. In medieval Latin a florilegium is a compilation of texts, the word deriving from flos (flower) and leger (to gather). In fitting with this title, the exhibition brings together contrasting works in which flowers or plants feature, each offering a distinctive take on sociological and poetic encounters between art and nature.

 

The event will take place at Grimaldi Gavin, 27 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4DW.
