Johannes Albers in 'Mauer', Berlin

September 23, 2013 by Kay

Mauer at Michael Fuchs Gallerie

Johannes Albers, Douglas Gordon

18th September – 26th October 2013

Those who want to know what holds the world together internally are more likely to think of a particle accelerator than a poet. Tiny little pieces are shot at each other at almost the speed of light in order to reveal their inner components. In the Michael Fuchs Galerie the worlds of Johannes Albers and Douglas Gordon collide with an uncertain outcome.

The exhibition is entitled ‘Mauer’ (Wall); a term that will forever be linked to Berlin. Berlin’s most famous construction and the euphoria over its fall belong to the past. There are new walls. The wall is both a limitation and a projection surface for our curiosity. A consistent theme in Alber’s work is both change and variability of the world. The boundary between an attempt and an action is reflected in the exhibition in a glass suitcase. A new beginning, fragile, transparent, but also as dangerous as an item of luggage left by an assailant. Douglas Gordon will shoot at 365 light bulbs in order research them in the manner of a particle physicist.

Adam Dix in the Jerwood Drawing Prize

September 20, 2013 by Kay

11 September - 27 October 2013

171 Union Street, Bankside, London, SE1 0LN

Selected from original art works, and now in its 19th year in this format, the Jerwood Drawing Prize has established a reputation for its commitment to championing excellence and exploring the boundaries of contemporary drawing practice within the UK.

This competition is a platform for drawing practitioners to showcase their work alongside other leading contemporary artists in this field, and provides those selected with the opportunity to help define the concept of drawing for future generations.

This year, the Jerwood Drawing Prize 2013 welcomes three exceptional leading art experts onto its panel: Kate Brindley, Director of Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art mima; Michael Craig-Martin RA, artist; and Charlotte Mullins, art critic, writer, broadcaster, and Editor of Art Quarterly, who will create an exhibition that explores and celebrates the diversity, excellence and range of current drawing practice in the UK.

The Prize is open to all UK based artists, from student to established, working with drawing. From an anticipated submission of well over 2,000 entries, the selectors will bring together between 50 and 70 works for an exhibition at JVA at Jerwood Space, London from 11 September – 27 October 2013. The exhibition will then tour to venues across the UK, including, for the first time, the Sidney Cooper Gallery, Canterbury Christ Church University in March 2014.

Polly Borland - YOU

September 18, 2013 by Kay

Private View: September 18, 6-8pm

Exhibition: September 18 - October 19, 2013

Paul Kasmin Gallery, 511 West 27 Street, New York

PK SHOP is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of photographs by Polly Borland entitled YOU. On view at 511 West 27 Street, the exhibition will present an intimate look at works from two of the artist’s latest series.

YOU is a meditation on love, from the heightened anticipation of possibility to its ultimately crushing disappointment. Photographing mirrors that support and reflect stuffed figures and mannequins bound in taut flesh-tone stockings, Borland masterfully creates abstract compositions that are both visceral and hauntingly beautiful. The evocative cocoon-like forms undergo a transformative process within the series. Desire and yearning bud from a fragile formless state, only to be displaced by rejection, hopelessness and madness as the series progresses.

Borland’s initial inspiration for YOUbegan when she relocated from London to Hollywood, with its promises of glamour and its artificial brand of beauty. The impetus for the latter part of the series was viewing the Museum Victoria’s extensive collection of medical equipment and clothing from psychiatric institutions, including artifacts produced by patients, from throughout her native Australia. All objects markedly devoid of love. Through this body of work, Borland poignantly touches on the universal conditions of love, desire and identity.

SAVE THE DATE: Damien Hirst - ABC book launch

September 17, 2013 by Kay

Damien-Hirst-ABC-book-launch-at-Other-Criteria-London

On October 1st, Other Criteria will launch the publication ABC by the artist Damien Hirst. From A is for Anatomy to Z is for Zebra, the reader will be able to discover Hirst’s paintings, sculptures, and much more on every page of this beautifully illustrated alphabet book.

Hirst’s body of work addresses the scientific, philosophical and religious issues which lie at the heart of human existence.

Produced with child friendly ‘soya bean ink’, ABC is fun for all the family and acts as an introduction to Hirst’s work. Each of the twenty-six carefully selected images span Hirst’s career, representing his iconic imagery. ABC is a new colourful way to look and learn about the English alphabet.

ABC is also a window into typography, each letter represents an alphabetically led font, A is for Albertus, B is for Baskerville.

“When we are no longer children, we are already dead” Constantin Brancusi. One of Damien’s favourite quotes.
