CAITLIN KEOGH : ALPHABET AND DAGGERS
Oct 1 - Nov 11, 2018
The Approach is pleased to host the debut solo exhibition in London by New York-based artist Caitlin Keogh.
 
In this exhibition of new works, Caitlin Keogh revisits anatomical themes, depicted in an illustrational style emphasising line and clarity. Keogh’s paintings are body-like, containing borders that permit exchange but that can also knot densely within themselves. This group of works returns to the motif of the intestine, literal and symbolic, imagining the torso’s interior as the site of painting. Metabolism and digestion play out in The Cat, showing a cat licking itself in front of the bones of a bird, and in Discipline Has Replaced Despair, with a stylised graphic indicating the passage of matter through the gut by the turning hands of a clock. But rather than considering these notions in purely visceral terms, the work refers more broadly to consuming, processing, and organising information.

Nov 15 - Dec 16, 2018
The Approach is delighted to present Eight Universes and The Machine, the first solo exhibition in the UK by South Korean artist Hun Kyu Kim.
Working in the aesthetic tradition of Korean silk painting, Kim crafts precise allegorical pictures, employing a range of both political, contemporary, and art-historical references and influences. Through his skilled application of oriental painting, Kim builds intricate stories about an imaginary world. Yet this fictional world becomes an analogy for Kim’s interpretation and reflections on the very real recent political situation in South Korea and its startling transformation since a stamping out of a corrupt regime.
