Together and separately, Danish artist Kasper Akhøj and his Brazilian partner Tamar Guimarães explore the residual histories of art, design and architecture, exposing unexpected connections between states of rapture and modernity. Much of their recent work has emerged from research undertaken in the small Brazilian town of Palmelo, many of whose inhabitants are Spiritist mediums.

Presented in the UK for the first time, Studies for A Minor History of Trembling Matter (2017) and Captain Gervasio’s Family (2014) are both set within this community. These films sit alongside Guimaraes’ film Canoas (2010), set in the home that architect Oscar Neimeyer built for himself outside Rio de Janeiro, and Akhøj’s Welcome (to the Teknival), 2009-17, a response to the restoration of Eileen Gray’s modernist villa e.1027. This is the artists’ first exhibition in a UK public institution.
