In this exhibition Samuel Hodge draws on his twenty-year archive of artistic practice to present an ambiguous and unpredictable installation in which disparate elements interrupt and collide with misaligned ‘official’ histories. In ‘The Wit of the Staircase’, Hodge considers the imponderability of a body of work that possesses his imagination and, at the same time, offers the audience endless points of access within its staged narratives. This exhibition features works that are included in Hodge's collaboration with Australian fashion label Romance Was Born on their 2020 Spring collection.
