Van Gogh House presents Life and its most trivial particulars by artists Brian Griffiths and Frank Kent, opening 4 September – 18 December 2021. The exhibition is the first in a new annual commissioning programme at Van Gogh House, marking 50 years since 87 Hackford Road was found to be the London residence of the renowned Dutch artist.

In the form of a photographic installation across all eight rooms of the restored 3-storey Georgian terraced house, Life and its most trivial particularsresponds to the accumulated histories and constructed realities of the building, from the early 19th century to the present day. Transposing still life and landscape, everyday materials and objects, sculptors Griffiths and Kent present their carefully staged and situated photographs as sideways moments of focus and narrative.
