Cerith Wyn Evans at Serpentine Galleries, London

by mousse

October 20~2014

Serpentine Galleries presents an exhibition by Cerith Wyn Evans at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery. This major solo show presents a varied body of work brought together “in concert”, and Wyn Evans has described the exhibition as “responding to the spaces which examine the transformative ‘Site/Sight/Cite’ effects that light, sound and duration can have on both spaces and their occupants. The site of the gallery, the perception of sight, the citation of references are multiple and swarming.”

Gabriele de Santis “On the Run” at Italian Cultural Institute, London

by mousse

October 20~2014

ARTUNER is pleased to announce a solo presentation of new works by the artist Gabriele De Santis at the Italian Cultural Institute in London. De Santis’ practice explores the narrowing dichotomy between the synthetic and natural and the increasingly pervasive cross-cultural influence of social media. The show’s title reflects De Santis’ interest in the idea of moving images, not in a cinematographic sense, but quite literally as canvases, sculptures and installations that refer skateboarding and are hence: “On the Run.” The title is also a nod to the eponymous Beyoncé and Jay-Z tour currently travelling the world.

Pedro Cabrita Reis “The London Angles” at Sprovieri Gallery, London

by mousse

October 20~2014

Sprovieri is delighted to announce “The London Angles” the inaugural exhibition with the gallery by Portuguese artist Pedro Cabrita Reis. Cabrita Reis’ complex work can be characterised by an idiosyncratic philosophical and poetical discourse embracing a great variety of means: painting, sculpture, photography, drawing, and installations composed of industrial and found materials and manufactured objects. Focused on questions relative to space and memory, his work is based and built on investigations and silences.

Ida Ekblad “A day of toil its ruins” and “A gentle looking little alien of sorts” at Herald St, London

by mousse

October 20~2014

Ida Ekblad “A day of toil its ruins”

Two strands, even epigenetic codes, as these strands seem to stem, perpetuate and emanate from complex, molecular regions of creative life: the emergence of a certain phantasmagorical creature, a gentle looking little alien of sorts that seems blown and air-brushed into a puffy life-form, quantum-mechanically assembled through various un-identifiable archival figures, from cartoons and graffiti to sports stars, mascots, children’s books, the hang time of a certain number 23, and a seemingly endless flow of distinct and indistinct viral shapes. The inversions and implosions of the by now more familiar shopping trolley tracks, whited out containers of both poetic creation and erasure. They all bear witness to both a mindful registering and an automated absorption of contemporary materiality and life.

Kenneth Alme “My Tarp Has Sprung a Leak” at Rod Barton, London

by mousse

October 19~2014

Rod Barton, London is pleased to present “My Tarp Has Sprung a Leak”, the first UK solo exhibition of Norwegian artist Kenneth Alme. The apparent redundancy of a tarpaulin with holes is a key theme within Alme’s latest body of work and is reflected in the shows title, borrowed from Nirvana’s seminal Something in the Way. Alme cites the tarpaulins presence in popular culture as a constant trope in “My Tarp Has Sprung a Leak”; from Laura Palmer’s makeshift burial shroud in the opening scenes of Twin Peaks to the father’s use of a tarpaulin to protect his family in Cormack McCarthy’s The Road. In each of these cases an object that is traditionally used as a protective tool fails to provide the safety desired: “He pushed away the plastic tarpaulin and raised himself in the stinking robes and blankets and looked towards the east for any sign of light but there was none.”

Andro Wekua “Some Pheasants in Singularity” at Sprüth Magers, London

by mousse

October 19~2014

For his first exhibition with Sprüth Magers, Andro Wekua transformed the London gallery by installing a wall constructed of rough breeze blocks, partially obscuring the view into the space through the large bay window. While from the exterior the blocks will be untreated and exposed, the interior side of the wall will have a smooth white surface as if to disguise it from within, allowing the wall to blend seamlessly into the interior space. Within the gallery, Wekua will suspend from the ceiling a life-sized sculpture of an androgynous adolescent.

Ciara Phillips “Just You” at Bergen Kunsthall

by mousse

October 15~2014


Glasgow-based Canadian artist Ciara Phillips works with printmaking in the broadest sense: from serigraphy, textiles and photography to site-specific wall works. She often collaborates with other artists, designers or groups in the local community, where she makes active use of the working collectivity that printing techniques invite. Drawing inspiration from various traditions, disciplines and histories, Phillips combines the democratic and critical potential of graphic art with an elegant, formal investigation of the specificity of the art of printing.

Danh Vō and Xiu Xiu “Metal” at The Kitchen, New York

by mousse

October 14~2014

The Kitchen is pleased to present “Danh Vō and Xiu Xiu: Metal”. The exhibition is curated by Tim Griffin with Lumi Tan. Having previously remarked that “the passport is the ultimate performance piece”—citing Felix Gonzalez Torres’s understanding of how movement and, by extension, cultural perspective, takes place in a legislated sphere—Vō has invited two Bangkok, Thailand-based gold pounders, Nantapol and Pruan Panicharam, to be present in the gallery while producing the gold leaf that often adorns his sculptures, from cardboard cartons featuring brand names from Budweiser to Colgate. This father-and-son team’s process of flattening 24-carat squares of gold into leaf takes three hours to execute; they will be working in the gallery daily from noon to 3pm, Tuesday through Saturday.

Oscar Murillo “An Average Work Rate with a Failed Goal” at 40mcube, Rennes

by mousse

October 13~2014

The work of Oscar Murillo is comprised of paintings, sculptures, videos and performances, and takes the shape of installations that preserve traces of former use. Although his works can be autonomous and viewed individually, it is truly within the exhibition itself, wherein the artist assembles all different mediums and aspects of his art, that they are truly able to find their meaning. For his solo exhibition at 40mcube for the occasion of the Ateliers de Rennes–Biennial of contemporary art, he presents a series of new works, one of which is a permanent performance that the public can activate.

Clemens von Wedemeyer “Every Word You Say” at Kunstverein Braunschweig

by mousse

October 13~2014

Clemens von Wedemeyer is presenting an almost purely acoustic show for his solo exhibition at the Kunstverein Braunschweig. It is dedicated to the history of the Deutsches Spracharchiv (German Language Archive), the work of its founder, the linguist and neurologist Eberhard Zwirner, and the ideas behind phonometry, which he decisively influenced. The archive once temporarily resided in the Villa Salve Hospes— the present home of the Kunstverein.
