PHILIPPE VANDENBERG : CROSSING THE CIRCLE
Sep 21 - Nov 13, 2016
Philippe Vandenberg’s (1952–2009) works on paper are highly personal responses to political and social issues. Powerful, confrontational images about sex, death, good and evil, express Vandenberg’s existential despair about the world, as well as his dark sense of humour. His works on paper are distinguished by fluid draughtsmanship in pencil, ink and richly coloured watercolour. They possess a sense of urgency, an economy of means and keen playfulness.

Nov 23, 2016 4:30pm - 6:00pm
Panel discussion including Thinking Tantra artists Shezad Dawood, Nicola Durvasula and Claudia Wieser with Amrita Jhaveri. Thinking Tantra is curated by Rebecca Heald with Amrita Jhaveri and a first iteration of the exhibition took place at Jhaveri Contemporary in Mumbai in early 2017.
Thinking Tantra has evolved through conversations with artists. The curator, Rebecca Heald, has selected artists who respond to Tantra drawings for different reasons: in response to their formal particularities; in more conceptual ways; or for their intellectual and cultural histories, the issues of ownership, and the place they hold in esoteric circles. As Heald says: ‘This multiplicity of relationships that people have with the drawings is compelling and provided a way to make sense of a diversity of material in terms of devising an exhibition’.
Nov 24, 2016 - Feb 19, 2017
Private view Wed Nov 23 6pm - 8:30am

A complex body of beliefs and practices, Tantra enables individuals to conjoin with cosmic forces and inhabit alternative dimensions. Omnipresent to those that are attuned, there are tools that facilitate tantric transcendence: rituals, sculptures, drawings, maps, and chants, to name but a few.
