‘Syncopes’ is a multimedia group exhibition curated by Mimosa House founder Daria Khan and the first exhibition at Mimosa House’s new London gallery space at 47 Theobalds Road in Holborn. ‘Syncopes’ will feature work from Chooc Ly Tan, Himali Singh Soin, Lala Rukh, Mira Calix, Ruth Beraha and Qian Qian. 

A syncope is a multi-format ‘tender interval’ which can be described in music as an unstressed ‘empty’ beat which interrupts the expected rhythm; in linguistics as the suspension of a syllable, or a letter; in medicine as a partial or complete loss of consciousness. In this exhibition, syncope acts as a metaphor for rapture, delay, lacunae, and displacement. In the current condition of suspension and global standby, the syncope morphs into a series of new meanings, while reinstating the necessity of a break from growing pressures and acceleration.

The artists in the show will experiment with transcribing and anatomising sound, language and image. By employing algorithms and working through musical scores, the artworks attempt to capture time, measure closeness, and practice resistance, silence and deep listening.
