Copperfield Gallery and SCAN present ‘Miseratione non mercede‘, with works by David Escalona, Julia Varela, Oscar Santillan and Marco Godoy. Translated to ‘compassion not gain’, the title draws on a Latin inscription in an old operating theatre. Hidden in the roof of the nearby St Thomas’s Church this was a space where those without money could receive pre-anaesthetic surgical treatment.
Copperfield gallery in London announces the first UK solo exhibition of Marco Godoy (b. 1986 Madrid) which follows his Royal College of Art MA (2014) and subsequent inclusion in group exhibitions at Palais de Tokyo and Centre Pompidou.
