Joanna Hogg’s previous films, Unrelated and Archipelago, made astute observations on the malaises of the English middle-class, and were set among fragile families spending time away from home, in Tuscany and Tresco respectively.

Exhibition is a departure, of sorts, in that it features a couple who are finding it hard to leave their home, a striking modernist house in west London, designed by architect James Melvin. It’s a most desirable residence, and estate agents visit with advice on how much the couple could make from selling it, which they seem resigned to do. She’s a performance artist reluctant to share her work with her partner, fearing his judgement. This seems to fuel his dissatisfied manner, born out of some suppressed past.

With Viv Albertine from punk band The Slits and conceptual artist Liam Gillick daringly cast in their first acting roles, Exhibition sees Hogg continuing to probe a particular British psyche with compassion and distinction.
