The Ellipse Foundation is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition, Come, come, come into my world, a selection of hitherto unseen works and new acquisitions from the Collection selected by guest curator Andrew Renton.

Come, come, come into my world begins with the possibilities of a collection, its realisation and its materiality. In a post-conceptual moment of art production, Come, come, come into my world is a celebration of the physicality and persistence of the object. This exhibition seeks to explore the possibilities of juxtaposition outside of purely art-historical perspectives, and attempts to articulate the exhibition space through a series of journeys from one object to another. Medium, style and ideology are thus subverted, and yield to the viewer’s embodied experience of the object.

Come, come, come into my world draws on the extensive collection of the Ellipse Foundation, and attempts to address the nature and obligations of working within collections. What are the responsibilities to context when bringing such a disparate group of works together? What useful histories can unfold? How might we usefully understand the gaps and discrepancies in art production and dissemination?

The exhibition is less concerned with histories of representation and illusion than it is with the lived experience or intervention offered by the work of art as it somehow gets in the way of the field of vision.

The Ellipse Foundation is located in Alcoitão, Cascais. Opening hours are Friday to Sunday from
11 am to 6 pm.

A guided tour of the exhibition for accredited press will take place on Friday, November 9 at 11 am. For reservations or further information, kindly contact info@ellipsefoundation.com
