HAIM STEINBACH : JAWS
Oct 27, 2017 - Jan 20, 2018 FINAL WEEK
White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of works by American artist Haim Steinbach (b. 1944) at Mason's Yard. jaws consists a new series of shelf works as well as the major installation Display #15 – Design for a Yogurt Bar, first made in 1981, which has been reconfigured for the gallery space.
 
Drawing on cultural models from the 1970s and 80s – in particular changing ideas of leisure and health – the works in the exhibition cultivate new and unexpected meanings through their juxtaposition. Objects are ciphers in Steinbach’s practice. Each with their own particular identity, story or history, their meanings and associations rely on the ‘contingency of their placement’, which is always subject to change. The artist also often re-contextualises his earlier works to adapt them to new sets of spatial and social conditions.

Click to enlargeJEWYO RHII : THE DAY 3, WALLS AND BARBED
Nov 21, 2017 - Jan 21, 2018 FINAL WEEK
Jewyo Rhii is intrigued by that certain moment when a narrative is generated, the movement that occurs to make a story begin. Her art is infused by the experiences of her peripatetic life and her engagement with the particularity of the places and situations in which she finds herself. Rhii’s drawings and installations capture some of the resonance of these places, often using words to evoke aspects of both a physical and emotional landscape. She has spoken of the idea of ‘sculpting words’ and has at times constructed machines and devices that generate text through an interaction with bodily movement.

LAURIE SIMMONS : FAKE FASHION
Feb 13 - Mar 18, 2018
Private view Sat Feb 10 6pm - 8pm
In 1984 one of Simmons’s newly minted ‘Fake Fashion’ photographs was chosen for the cover of Double Trouble, a themed issue of the incisive and influential ZG Magazine, published in collaboration with Art and Text. In this series, Simmons simulated fashion photography using garments acquired from junk shops, combined with projected backdrops recycled from earlier works. These included her iconic dolls-house furniture scenarios, various underwater scenes and images of popular tourist destinations. In a feature article in the magazine, the critic Rosetta Brooks related Simmons’s work to emerging theories of photography and simulation: 'Whilst the photography of simulated worlds seems like a regression within the medium, for artists like Simmons it is a desire to get at what makes it real, what makes it happen.’

Click to enlargeAND LINES PRESENT SCORES...
Dec 2, 2017 - Feb 2, 2018
'and lines present scores to be performed by bodies' points to the reciprocal relationship between bodily movement and the line. The line acts both as a point of departure from bodily gesture, but also the score for which the body moves along. The site-specific work of Leonor Serrano-Rivas’ draws from the architecture of Wimbledon Space. Here, Serrano-Rivas considers the possibilities of its linear forms as a tool for performative choreography, and the relationship between the ornament and the body. Bill Leslie and Claire Undy's moving image toys with the two-dimensional parameters of filmic space, maneuvering sculptural objects in and out of the frame. These forms sit within a composition, recurrently manipulated by the choreography of the artists’ hands.

Click to enlargeRYUICHI ISHIKAWA : ZKOP; A BLESSING IN DISGUISE
Jan 12 - Mar 15, 2018
Yamamoto Keiko Rochaix is pleased to host the very first showing in the UK of works of Ryuichi Ishikawa, an emerging talent in photography. The 'Okinawa Portraits' and 'Landscape in Polyphony' series have earned him critical acclaim and lead him to be shortlisted as one of the five finalists for the Nissan Art Award 2017. Curated from these series, 'A Blessing in Disguise' is an ode to the alternative lives in Okinawa, southernmost islands of the Japanese archipelago, and his home turf. The raw and powerful images of the non-mainstream society may make him a god-son of the Japanese photography tradition immortalising underground culture tracing back to after the WWII. Yet, his underlining affection towards the subjects and indeed towards his hometown, is felt even in the darkest of the images, turning his body of work curiously fresh, with a tint of youthful optimism.
