OLD MAS­TERS, NEW ARTIST

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Escape News -

Lon­don’s land­mark an­tiques and dec­o­ra­tive arts ar­chive, The Wallace Col­lec­tion, opens a con­tem­po­rary ex­hi­bi­tion this month that will bring even the most mod­ern art fan to its door. ‘The Mid­dle’ by Tom El­lis sees the Bri­tish artist present site-spe­cific work along­side the col­lec­tion’s an­cient arte­facts in the Front State Room, the ex­hi­bi­tion gal­leries, and on the front lawn of its Hertford House home in Maryle­bone. El­lis’ pieces in­clude oil paint­ings and fur­ni­ture; keep an eye out for ‘trans­for­ma­tive’ ta­bles and chairs that echo the up­stairs Boudoir Room’s writ­ing ta­ble (right) by 18th-cen­tury fur­ni­ture maker Jean-françois Leleu, which starts in one form and opens up to be­come some­thing else. 15 Septem­ber–27 Novem­ber (wal­lacecol­lec­tion.org).
