Derek Fordjour - The House Always Wins
'The House Always Wins' will be American artist Derek Fordjour’s first full solo exhibition in the UK.
The exhibition comprises a new series of paintings across the two floors of our 44-46 Riding House Street galleries, an immersive installation entitled In Memoriam inaugurating our new 40-42 Riding House Street space, and Storefront, a street-facing sculpture spanning the gallery’s extended picture windows, transforming the neighborhood.
The show adopts its title from the world of casino gaming and the lopsided deal of the ‘house edge’. More than a gambling term or an economic principle, within the context of Fordjour’s work the idea of The House Always Wins is also an emotional state, one that questions practical notions of fairness and equality alongside holistic, societal notions of opportunity and progress.
