HAPPY HOUR: 12 April - 25 May 2019

HAPPY HOUR brings together eight artists to exhibit at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery's London Bridge project space.
The Melior Place project space is housed within the building's glasshouse architecture and reverberates with the city's unique histories and energy. Sculpture, painting and video are installed throughout the building to activate a dialogue between the artworks and the architectural space.
HAPPY HOUR allows us to glimpse a space of opportunity between work, leisure and the domestic, an example of how this performative cross-boundary 'being-together' can come about through the communal or collective.
The USS Arkansas American Navy dating in 1913, the term 'happy hour' derived from The Happy Hour Social, a place for those on board to drink, box and dance. The club is the real need for conviviality, escapism and release from workaday realities.
By the same token, HAPPY HOUR offers a similar invitation to let loose and unwind, exploring the world of politics, work and pleasure.
