Click to enlargeKIKI KOGELNIK : RIOT OF OBJECTS
Mar 14 - Jul 5, 2020
The first institutional presentation in the UK to focus solely on Kiki Kogelnik’s ceramic works. Considered one of the key figures of the post-war avant-garde, Kogelnik’s multidisciplinary oeuvre spans five decades. Her multi-faceted artistic style evolved from painterly abstraction to Pop Art and the representation of the (female) body. This exhibition demonstrates Kogelnik’s boundless capacity for invention and restless commitment to making.
Her multifaceted artistic style evolved from painterly abstraction to Pop Art and the representation of the (female) body. Consumer culture, technology and feminism were recurring themes throughout her work. Her unique aesthetic is marked with playfulness and humour yet imbued with a stark sense of criticality. In resisting and contesting the lure of post-war capitalist culture in her work, she demarcated herself from her contemporary peers.
