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.

VITRINE is delighted to announce that the Zabludowicz Collection highlighted our next show with Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick on their website. Read the article here.
“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.
‘SMUT’ is a two-person exhibition of emerging British artists Jamie Fitzpatrick and Lindsey Mendick, whose practices explore a shared interest in gender, high and low cultural histories, and the relevance of the figure in image-making. Opening during Art Basel at Vitrine gallery Basel.”
