Jul 16 - Aug 29, 2020
Alex Urie has developed an immersive process of painting that begins with brushing, pouring, and flooding his medium onto a horizontal canvas. He then builds up layers and textures to create compositions made up of repeated motifs, and compartmentalised areas on the picture plane. Initially read as abstractions, Urie constructs these works from a variety of personal and found online images, to create complex works that require intimate and sustained viewing.

ONLINE | WORKS ON PAPER
May 29 - Aug 30, 2020
For Project Native Informant’s third online exhibition, we present new or previously unseen works on paper by eight artists from the gallery programme. For some, it is a natural process that constitutes a key aspect of their practice. For others, the immediacy and ease of working on paper supplements their process, necessitated by the material and spatial constraints posed by currently working from home. The works illustrate the manifold ways in which working on paper can be interpreted while also highlighting affinities and shared concerns between practices that at times may be considered disparate.

THE CORRESPONDENCE
Jul 2 - 26, 2020
As the world went into lockdown a distanced dialogue emerged. An urgency to retain a sense of connectedness in a culture of cancellations and postponed projects spurred a collaborative foot forward. This month TRG unveils a new collection, the culmination of a mail art project that began in early March. The exhibition presents the work of 18 artists who exchanged works and ideas, sustaining contact in the midst of far reaching distancing measures. Following a loose variation on the "exquisite corpse" format, artists sent each other partially finished works in concealed portions with the next artist developing the work. In a chain of participation and exchange, this communal act of making art played a relevant role in channelling these exceptional times.
 
Taking cues from the rich history of collaborative mail art projects executed by the likes of Ray Johnson in the 60s; Matthew Higgs’ Imprint 93 project in the 90’s; Moyra Davey’s ‘mailer works’; and Raymond Pettibon & Marcel Dzama’s 'Forgetting The Hand’ project in 2015; the exhibition consists of a collection of 6 final works on paper and an assortment of postal materials that document the project. Artists sent works from all corners of the UK, to the US, and into Europe. Some artists sent works to friends, others to strangers, others used the opportunity to maintain connection with people where lockdown intensifies already precarious circumstances. For example, Barry Reigate sent his work via Carneys Community, an outreach program for disadvantaged and excluded young people in South London. A text written by Ella Fleck accompanies the exhibition.

Click to enlargeANNEGRET SOLTAU : SPIDER
Feb 21 - Aug 14, 2020
Since the beginning of her career in the 1970s, Annegret SOLTAU has championed an experimental approach to art, challenging the conventional notions of representation through performance, photography and collage. While the focus of Soltau’s work never ventures far from the female body and its bodily processes, often incorporating images of herself, at the heart of her practice is an inexhaustible search for identity and meaning.
The exhibition at Richard Saltoun will be Soltau’s first solo exhibition with the gallery, restaging works from her early years in post-war Darmstadt in Germany. Presenting works that examine themes of personal loss, identity, and transformation, the exhibition will include large-scale photo etchings, thread installations and archival works from the late 1970s and 80s.

Click to enlargeONE BY ONE : APOSTOLOS GEORGIOU
Jul 2 - Sep 19, 2020
As we begun with the previous exhibition, Apostolos Georgiou’s solo show One by One continues Rodeo’s new programme direction in which exhibitions are spread across both spaces in Piraeus and London. Following the opening of the exhibition in Piraeus on 4th June with eleven large paintings, the show at Bourdon Street opens on 2nd July.
In this new body of works we are confronted with an abundance of situations that take place in Georgiou’s familiar undefined interiors. But for a change, some situations are set outdoors. Georgiou’s outdoors, though, can be as claustrophobic and airless as his interiors.
With a background in architecture, he treats the interior and the exterior space similarly. Be it a mountain horizon or a balcony, the perspective is what sets the psychological backdrop, the stage upon which events occur.

Click to enlargeINTRODUCING: ARTHUR TIMOTHY + JUAN MIGUEL QUIÑONES
Jun 25 - Sep 25, 2020
Continuing Ronchini’s long tradition of introducing pioneering artists to the London audience, we are proud to introduce both Arthur Timothy and Juan Miguel Quiñones.
Arthur Timothy is an architect and painter whose works depict close family members and autobiographical events, specifically in Accra, Ghana where the artist was born, and Sierra Leone, where he lived until the age of 9. The paintings are inspired by small black and white family photographs and are imbued with vibrant colour, added from his memory and imagination, which update and bring life to the original imagery.
Spanish sculptor Juan Miguel Quiñones was drawn to stone masonry and marble work from an early age, influenced by the quaries near his home town. Inspired by Pop Art, he creates sculptures of everyday popular items such as ice-cream, skateboards and spray paint cans using highly polished coloured stones, marble and resin. His works create a sense of merriment, playing with scale and materials; objects appear to be functional but on closer inspection are masterfully created intricate and luxurious objects de art.

Click to enlargeHITO STEYERL : THE TOWER
Jun 16 - Jul 31, 2020
Steyerl’s immersive installation The Tower (2015) focuses on the making of the video game Skyscraper: Stairway to Chaos by the Ukrainian company Ace3D, based on Saddam Hussein’s unrealised plans to reconstruct the Tower of Babel in Babylon, the ancient capital that he began rebuilding in the 1980s. Part of an origin myth explaining the development of different languages, the Tower of Babel has come to symbolise the hubris of humans aspiring to godliness and the chaos resulting from an inability to communicate. As the game developer describes in voiceover, the Skyscraper is a contemporary analogue to the Tower that connects to other dimensions, much as Steyerl’s film merges the virtual with reality. Precariously situated in a conflict zone, which he describes as a ‘1 km ride by tank’ from the Russian border, the developer explains how he has become part of a global network of technology firms, remotely contracted by European companies who outsource labour to cheaper economies, drawing attention to the physical labour underpinning digital culture.
As Zachary Small observes in his review of her Park Avenue Armory show, ‘An oracle of our end times, Steyerl is a crucial voice in a chorus of critics seeking to untangle the problems of contemporary culture. Meandering through the artist’s milieu of dystopias … one gets the sense that she is weaving together a 21st-century global tapestry.’ The installation for The Tower is adapted for each environment, but includes a red felt platform with futuristic red chairs, immersing the viewer in an alternate space that feels removed from reality.

Click to enlargeSARAH LUCAS : HONEY PIE
to end of August 2020
Sadie Coles HQ presents HONEY PIE, an exhibition by Sarah Lucas featuring a new group of sculptures that extend her long-term Bunny series into dynamic new forms.
The exhibition consists of several sculptures made from stuffed tights and found objects, alongside an equal number of works in bronze and concrete. First conceived in 1997, Lucas’s Bunny sculptures evoke female nudes reclining on chairs in states of abandon and vulnerability. Employing the same everyday materials, the soft sculptures in HONEY PIE develop this formula through anatomical contortions, flamboyant footwear and chairs of eclectic shape and size. Bright colours applied to the figures’ limbs give them the appearance of a surrealist chorus line, at once exotic and comedic. Lucas has elevated the works on a series of plinths that reinforce their individualism, resetting the balance of power between sculpture and viewer.

Exhibition extended 3 July - 1 August
In his latest exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ, NORTHERN SOUL, Jim Lambie presents a body of work – spanning sculpture, video and installation – that expands his distinctive visual language into various new registers and forms.
The exhibition centres on a group of wall sculptures consisting of sliced sections of door, arranged vertically in minimalist formations and finished in horizontal bands of dazzling colour. In form and material, these works glance back to a long line of door sculptures by Lambie over the past twenty years, including his 2003 installation Paradise Garage for the Scottish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, which featured gloss-painted doors cut up and reconfigured as angular sculptures.

Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present WORDS, a group exhibition that explores the function of language and the role of text in art making. Whether dealing in political statements, ribald asides, poetry and literature or illegible scrawls and scribbles, the works in this exhibition comment on the ways in which ideas are exchanged and communication effected. While the visual language of an artist’s vernacular is well trodden ground, WORDS highlights the way in which – from the late 1960s onwards – conceptual art practice delved into notions of authorship, aesthetics and the dematerialisation of the traditional art object, in the pursuit of complicating the relationship between the verbal and the visual. Taking words and language as both subject and medium, the works presented explore the interrelation of form and meaning, and the distinction between looking at and reading a painting.

Click to enlargeANNE LIBBY
Jun 2 - Aug 31, 2020
Libby’s work considers the power structures that surround us on a granular and macro level—the latter via her use of plays of light that subtly destabilise their mass. “Dilated Sky,” the artist’s first solo exhibition at Soft Opening, continues her observations of the exteriors of glass-curtain buildings. Here, the shells of these commonplace yet formidable urban structures are seen opened out by light refracted from the sky and bouncing from building to building to create moments of unintended, organic exchange between them. In the three sculptures on view, each constructed from soft polyester and reflective Scotchlite™ material, brittle surfaces are translated into quilts that capture the shifts in light on the competing glass panes of these buildings as they are viewed from the street. This dichotomy between light and mass is amplified by Soft Opening’s subterranean glassed-in atrium space, itself situated below Piccadilly Circus, one of London’s major hubs of commerce that is also home to some of the city’s most arresting and immersive neon and video displays.
 
Dilation is commonly associated with a swelling of the pupil, and while the towering stature of her subjects creates an oculus-like, contained experience of the sky, the glass windows that sheathe them—which Libby uses as references—similarly expand its optical reach in unpredictable ways. Captured light activates these sculptures, shifting their register as the viewer moves around them and giving them a mesmerising biomorphic cast.

Sigmar Polke and Michael Buthe were born three years apart during the Second World War and became part of a generation of German artists to define the Post-War period, as well as becoming close friends. Polke and Buthe were increasingly experimental in their respective artistic practices and lifestyles into the 1970s. Polke began to live communally with Buthe being one of his many guests, and the artists each travelled extensively to Africa and the Middle East whilst also experimenting with hallucinogens. The exhibition at S|2 will look at how these mind-expanding experiences and the shared networks of friends the artists were amongst came to influence their diverse artistic output.

Click to enlargeERIKA TAN : STANLEY PICKER FELLOW FINE ART
Apr 30 - Jul 18, 2020
The Stanley Picker Fellow Fine Art, 2018. View work online while the galleries are temporarily closed: www.stanleypickergallery.org/
Erika Tan is an artist and curator whose work is primarily research-led and manifests itself in multiple formats such as moving image, publications, curatorial and participatory projects; she is a lecturer in Fine Art at Central Saint Martins College of Art (London) and a member of Asia-Art-Activism.
Tan’s most recent research has focused on the postcolonial and transnational, working with archival artifacts, exhibition histories, received narratives, contested heritage, subjugated voices and the transnational movement of ideas, people and objects; her future projects point towards the digitization of collective cultural memory and cloud architecture through the prism of ruins, hauntings, and mnemonic collapse.
Tan’s work has been exhibited, collected and commissioned internationally including: The Diaspora Pavilion, (Venice Biennale 2017); Artist and Empire (Tate Touring, National Gallery Singapore 2016/7); Come Cannibalise Us, Why Don’t You (NUS Museum, Singapore 2014); There Is No Road (LABoral, Spain 2010); Thermocline of Art (ZKM, Germany 2007); Around The World in Eighty Days (South London Gallery / ICA 2007); The Singapore Biennale (2006); Cities on the Move (Hayward Gallery, London). Recent curatorial projects include Sonic Soundings/Venice Trajectories.

BEN JUDD : THE ORIGIN
Jun 1 - Jul 12, 2020 FINAL WEEK
Stanley Picker Fellow Ben Judd is collaborating with local residents, community groups, students and academics to create an adaptable floating structure which will travel along the River Thames. The work will consider the importance of community within a large city and facilitate meaningful exchanges between strangers, aiming to reconnect people both to each other and to their environment.
Prior to the physical version, an online version will run for six weeks throughout June and July on these pages.
Britain’s island status, both literal and metaphorical, has always been at the heart of its identity; this work will mirror those concerns by creating a miniature floating community that will act as a microcosm for the ways in which we co-habit, communicate and solve problems. A temporary community, an experiment in living, is exciting and relevant because it embraces the propositional; the ‘what if’ – it can be seen as a rehearsal for an alternative future.
The idea of a classless, stateless, humane society based on common ownership feels particularly poignant within the current climate. This work aims to reconsider ideas of hope, love, solidarity, care and support. The community’s values will therefore be centred around these core themes and will aim to define and explore them throughout the project.
Participants will be invited to engage with a real, live, porous community and contribute to its development. Participants will have a dedicated week in which to develop specific aspects of the community, such as costume, narrative, movement, music, engagement with the local environment, and use of the boat. #TheOriginKingston
