  Lisa Roet’s exhibition When I laugh… presents a range of new works that expand upon her investigations into the complex interface between humans and our simian relatives. Inspired loosely by the real-life relationship between a gorilla and female spectator at the Rotterdam Zoo – and betraying the obvious affinities with the story of King Kong immortalised by Hollywood – the latest body of work is arguably among the artist’s most compelling yet, exploring biological, cultural and visual parallels between the ape/human heart, notions of love and the ‘physicality’ of romance.
