Kristin Hjellegjerde London, Melior Place
HAPPY HOUR brings together eight artists to exhibit at Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery's London Bridge project space.
The Melior Place project space is housed within the building's glasshouse architecture and reverberates with the city's unique histories and energy. Sculpture, painting and video work are
installed throughout the building to activate a dialogue between the artworks and the architectural space.

HAPPY HOUR allows us to glimpse a space of possibility between work, leisure and the domestic, an example of how this performative cross-boundary 'being-together' can come about through the communal or collective.
From origins dating back to the USS Arkansas American Navy in 1913, the term 'happy hour' derived from The Happy Hour Social, a place for those on board to drink, box and dance. The
club addressed the very real need for conviviality, escapism and release from workaday realities.

By the same token, HAPPY HOUR offers a similar invitation to let loose and unwind, and to explore
what connects the worlds of politics, work and pleasure.
