For her first solo show in the UK, Italian artist Adelaide Cioni (b. 1976) presents Ab ovo / On Patterns. The exhibition is the culmination of the artist’s ongoing exploration of decorative patterns and is her most ambitious project to date, investigating visual language across mediums in a large-scale format. Presented at Mimosa House, the exhibition is supported by the Italian Council, Directorate-General for Contemporary Creativity, Italian Ministry of Culture. It runs from 9 March until 25 April 2023 and admission is free.

Cioni works at the intersection of painting, textiles and performance. Drawing is at the core of her practice, based on a feminist non-narrative approach. During the exhibition (on 8 and 11 March) she will premiere a new performance exploring how music and the dancing body respond to these abstract patterns.
