It is Better to be Cats than be Loved

DATE: 2022.7.8 - 2022.8.6
ARTIST: London Summer Show

Tabula Rasa Gallery is pleased to announce the summer show “It is Better to be Cats than be Loved”, opening this Thursday 7th July, 6-8pm. Bringing together paintings and ceramic works by five artists, this exhibition highlights a new generation of talents upcoming in London: Katarina Caserman (b.1996), Anousha Payne (b.1991), Sophie Ruigrok (b.1992), Cheri Smith (b.1991) and Shafei Xia (b.1989).

With this tongue-in-cheek exhibition title references Niccolò Machiavelli infamous saying: It is better to be feared than loved“, the exhibition brings to light the sense and rationale in the ambiguity of historic factmaking. It is a self-exploration of how beliefs and doctrines flow across time, that are at once perilous and fundamental in the development of humanity.
