Salon is a vital part of CCP, and we mean ‘vital’ in all senses. It’s an energetic jolt to the gallery every year. Each Salon opening an audience of incredible scale floods the space, filling it with a lot of love. While visitation is currently on hold, we’re bringing some of this energy online by inviting Salon prizewinners from all categories in the past three years to contribute to our Still Life series.
For this, the second entry in this online exhibition series, we invited these Salon prizewinners to turn their own domestic bliss or burden into a ‘still life’. We were interested in the ways they nest: the new & old things they’re discovering at the back of cupboards, the fold-out chair that’s suddenly striking them as an architectural achievement, the set they’ve created entirely from scratch and painstakingly posed — anything. We’ve loved seeing the diverse and striking imagery from within their homes, and are excited to share it with you.
