JONNY BRIGGS & EVY JOKHOVA : THE MANICURED WILD
Jul 20 - Sep 2, 2017
A giant eye, staring out at you, fingers clawing out of a young boy’s portrait; there are overlapping image panes, a kaleidoscopic vision of deconstructed portraits. Elsewhere, pictures are embedded in foamy concrete, blocks of grey stone standing on spindly legs like totems. A boulder endlessly pushed up and down a quiet street, a Sisyphean feat of rebellion against the man-made constraints forever taking over nature. It is precisely here, at the junction where man and nature collide, that the works of artists Jonny Briggs and Evy Jokhova meet. The Manicured Wild (20 July – 2 September 2017) at Kristin Hjellegjerde, brings together the place where both disparate artistic practices meet, as each investigates the relationship between the manmade and the natural, old and new, and our desire to control the world around us, whether through landscaping and architectural interventions, or constructed realities, where truth and fiction merge.

AUDUN ALVESTAD AND CRISTINA BANBAN
SPECIALLY NORMAL
29 MARCH - 28 APRIL 2018 London
Private View: 28 March 6:30-9pm
 
Two painters, two complimentary styles, yet two very different lenses onto the world around us. In Specially Normal (29th of March–28th of April 2018), Kristin Hjellegjerde will present new works by Norwegian Audun Alvestad and Spanish Cristina BanBan. While their painterly portraits of people may at first glance appear similar in their depiction of the everyday, these two oeuvres embody distinctly different approaches.
