Tarek Lakhrissi: My Immortal
This new commission consists of existing and new work comprising film, sculpture and text presented as an installation across the gallery spaces. Rooted in poetry, Tarek Lakhrissi’s practice seeks to challenge contemporary constructs of language and narratives around minoritised communities. Taking the 2003 song “My Immortal” by American pop group Evanescence as its title, the exhibition reflects upon the notion of community, particularly a queer community which it considers as a complex, fragile and ephemeral entity. On the one hand it can offer possibilities of love, empowerment and protection but also nightmares and fears. 

Tarek Lakhrissi is a visual artist and a poet based in Paris and Brussels.

Supported by Fluxus Art Projects.

Jacqueline de Jong: The Ultimate Kiss
October 9, 2021–February 6, 2022
Jacqueline de Jong
is considered one of the crucial artistic figures of the post-war avant-garde and this exhibition will be the first solo presentation of her work in a UK institution. Throughout her career, spanning over half a century, de Jong has developed a unique painterly practice. Expressive in style, her work exhibits uninhibited eroticism, violence and humour. In parallel to her work as a painter, she was editor of The Situationist Times (1962–1967) and a member of the Situationist International during her early years in Paris in the 1960s. 

Jacqueline de Jong is an artist born in 1939 in Hengelo, The Netherlands. She lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 

Curated by Juliette Desorgues (Curator of Visual Arts, MOSTYN) and organised in collaboration with WIELS where the exhibition is presented by Devrim Bayar (Curator, WIELS) and Xander Karskens (Director, De Ateliers) (May 1–August 15, 2021). The exhibition will tour to the Kunstmuseum Ravensburg, Germany (March 12–June 19, 2022). 

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by Fonds Mercator with texts by Devrim Bayar, Juliette Desorgues, Alison Gingeras, Xander Karskens and Niña Weijers

Supported by The Mondriaan Fund, The Tyrer Charitable Trust, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, The Dutch Embassy, London, Dürst Britt & Mayhew, Gallery. 


Anathemata
October 9, 2021–February 6, 2022
Anathemata is a study in corporeal epic poetry within a triad of 20th-century avant-garde artists, Antonin Artaud, Pierre Guyotat and David E. Jones, whose narratives tell of war and desire, personal fragmentation and transcendence, disfiguration and cataclysmic incantation. Their work will be interlaced through a display of manuscripts, drawings, sound and video and presented in dialogue with works by contemporary artists such as Paul-Alexandre Islas and James Richards. The exhibition title is borrowed from David E. Jones’s eponymous poem published in 1952. Considered Jones’ seminal work, Anathemata narrates the thought processes of a cambrophile over the span of roughly seven seconds at an English Catholic Mass using old, middle and early modern English, Welsh, and Latin, moving freely between Iron Age Cornwall, Tudor London, Penda’s Mercia or the Welsh “Otherworld.” 

Curated by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou, a curatorial duo based in Paris, France. 

Supported by Fluxus Arts Projects and The Moondance Foundation. 


Writing commissions 
Starting in September 2021, MOSTYN will launch a series of writing commissions by contemporary writers and poets such as Roy Claire Potter, Dylan Huw, Reba Maybury and Nat Raha.
