SARA CWYNAR : ROSE GOLD
Oct 1 - Nov 11, 2018
Cwynar’s film Rose Gold (2017) focuses on Apple’s Rose Gold iPhone, tracking how the phone acts as a talisman of desire for objects, people, power, and money. Released in September 2015, the Rose Gold iPhone was already outdated during the film’s production – superseded by the perpetual release of newer and more advanced models. Thus, in 2018, the Rose Gold iPhone is already a relic, an anachronistic icon that epitomises the successes and speed of modern technology, which leaves even the most recent of inventions behind in order to keep reincarnating, updating, improving.
 
The film considers how individuals — the artist as one of its protagonists – negotiate complicated feelings of love and hate for commercial objects and how features, such as 3D Touch, resonate directly with the user’s emotions and imagination.

LISA OPPENHEIM : THE AMERICAN COLONY
Mar 28 - May 5, 2019
In her new exhibition, The American Colony, Oppenheim highlights her unique ability to translate historical subjects and early methods of photo-making through contemporary experimental darkroom processes. In these new works, the artist explores stereoscopy in particular, a technique popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for its pseudo-3D effect in which two images of the same object are taken from slightly different angles and then are optically merged through a viewing device.

SAM WINDETT : REMODEL
Mar 28 - May 5, 2019
For Remodel, British artist Sam Windett will exhibit recent paintings in The Annexe, produced through his distinctive process of layering paint and paper. Windett works through a system of continuously adding and subtracting materials, modelling and remodelling the canvas surface to create paintings caught somewhere between abstraction, narrative and representation.

May 15 - Jun 25, 2019
Private view Wed May 15 6pm - 9pm
The Approach is excited to present Die Wässer und Libellenlust, a solo exhibition of works by Heidi Bucher. The show focusses on water and the symbol of the dragonfly, two major aspects of her practice that resonated throughout the late ‘70s and ‘80s. These elements highlighted Heidi’s fascination with the processes of shedding, transformation and renewal. Bucher’s employment of water, with its ablutionary qualities, and the dragonfly, as an embodiment of metamorphosis, represented her vision of breaking free from the constraints and traumas that haunt both one’s past and present.
