PRESS SMUT in Widewalls
“Every piece exhibited is crying out for attention from the viewer, as if they are lonely and desperate for love, and every corner of the space is filled with flamboyant florals, fluid curves of golds and pastels and almost unidentifiable juicy materials.”
Great review of SMUT by Claudia Dance-Wells in Widewalls. SMUT, duo show of Patrick Fitzjamie and Lindsey Mendick is on view at VITRINE in Basel until September 2nd, 2018. Read more here.

PRESS Hanae Wilke in FAD
“The works are a novel take on an issue plaguing large parts of the population, offering alternative superior tenures. Wilke says that the “vessel is a habitable place”, somewhere that houses the body. A home to hold the future. A future where city architecture is planned with care for the public and social policies focus on cultural assimilation and housing equality in sustainable, environmentally friendly ways.” Will Clarke reviews Hanae Wilkes ‘Close Quarters’ at VITRINE London for FAD Magazine.

PRESS Frieze Sculpture 2018, including VITRINE and Tim Etchells, is featured in Something Curated
“Last year, our first-ever summer Frieze Sculpture was a resounding success, with more than five million visitors enjoying exceptional sculpture by artists from around the world. The 2018 edition is just as expansive and diverse, so that the public and collectors alike can experience world-class artwork in the beautiful English Gardens, designed by Markham Nesfield in 1866. My hope is that the exhibition will give pause for thought as well as great pleasure, and that visitors to Regent’s Park will have a snapshot of the fantastic imagination of artists and variety of sculpture being made today.” Read more here: Something Curated, What to Expect From The Return Of Frieze Sculpture This Summer.
PRESS SMUT Interview with Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick in MyArtGuides
On the occasion of the duo show “SMUT” by British artists Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick at VITRINE Basel, which opens on Tuesday 12 June to coincide with Art Basel 2018, we asked the curator Alys Williams (VITRINE Founding Director and SMUT Curator) and artists to have a conversation to learn more about the exhibition, the artist’s practice and their interest in the Wallace Collection, London, where they have both taken inspiration. Read more here.
PRESS SMUT in Frieze
“The Wallace Collection is housed in the 18th-century Hertford House in a square north of Oxford Street in London. It is a sumptuous setting for a superb collection with emphases on 18th century French painting, furniture, porcelain and more. Contrast that with Vitrine’s Basel location: an angular, contemporary glazed space tucked under a road bridge next to a train station, tram stop and supermarket. British artists Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick, both graduates of the Royal College of Art, bring a flavour of the historic London collection to this Basel location with works in sculpture, painting and sound that revisit the exuberance and excess of the French depictions of love and sensual encounters. Embraces and gestures are examined and recreated with keen interest in their standard vocabulary and how this might be altered or emphasised, reviewing gender and class distinctions in contemporary form. “
We are delighted SMUT is featured in Frieze Best Shows in Basel guide! Read more here.
