Event description

Description

Liane Lang will be showing some works at Coffee is my cup of Tea in Hackney, curated by Richard Ducker. On show will be a selection of bronze moustaches and some related images. This show references the inspiration for Lang's moustache series.

For many decades the Cafe Sibylle in East Berlin held a part of Stalin's bronze moustache, secretly taken by a workman charged with the statue's destruction. The sale of the moustaches is in aid of Lang's new project Glorious Oblivion, a series of works celebrating statues of women. It seemed appropriate to sell off some male statues to pay for some female ones.

The cafe does nice food if you're coming straight from work. Afterwards we will walk five minutes to the house of a private collector who will kindly open the doors to his beautiful place and show us the works. He has many pieces Liane's work from different series. For obvious reasons this will need to be a small group so rsvp/ticket booking is essential.
