Click to enlargeJENNIFER PACKER
Dec 5, 2020 - Mar 14, 2021
This survey exhibition, the artist’s first in a European institution, will include paintings and drawings from the past decade alongside recent work. New York-based Jennifer Packer is known for painting intimate portraits of friends and family members and flower still lifes. Working from a combination of observation, improvisation and memory, Packer’s paintings and large-scale drawings reveal an emotional and physical fragility of life. Characterised by a vibrant approach to colour and a powerful play of scale, she layers, reveals and obscures her subjects through constant shifts between grounds, dissolving figuration into near abstraction.
Packer transforms the art historical traditions of portraiture and still life within a contemporary context and urgency. On occasion, she describes her flower compositions as funerary bouquets and vessels of personal grief; these paintings about loss are often made in response to tragedies of state and institutional violence against Black Americans. While the casual repose of her portraits is the result of her care for the sitters, Packer acknowledges her choice to paint figures as political, stating: ‘Representation and particularly, observation from life, are ways of bearing witness and sharing testimony’.

SERPENTINE SACKLER GALLERY| JAMES BARNOR
Spring 2021
A major UK retrospective of British-Ghanaian photographer James Barnor, whose career as a studio portraitist, photojournalist and Black lifestyle photographer spans six decades and records major social and political changes in London and Accra. Born in 1929 in Ghana, Barnor established his famous Ever Young studio in Accra in the early 1950s, capturing a nation on the cusp of independence in an ambiance animated by conversation and highlife music. In 1959 he arrived in London, furthering his studies and continuing assignments for influential South African magazine Drum which reflected both the spirit of the era and experiences of London’s burgeoning African diaspora. He returned to Ghana in the early 1970s to establish the country’s first colour processing lab while continuing his work as a portrait photographer and embedding himself in the music scene.

Click to enlargeMIKA TAJIMA : REGULATION
Jan 21 - Mar 6, 2021
Simon Lee Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by New York-based conceptual artist Mika Tajima. For her debut solo exhibition in the UK, Tajima presents new paintings, textile works, and sculptures that focus on psychic and bodily energy under the regulation of technocapitalism. The exhibition connects the industrial production of energy and computational power to the maintenance of a fully realised productive self. Among other linkages, Regulation renders a relationship between a commercial fusion energy company and a group meditation startup. Indexing forms of technologies and ideologies that shape us as subjects, the work — perforated, formed, inverted, woven and enmeshed — materialises the unseen, contactless forces from within and beyond. The exhibition will include new works from the artist’s ongoing Art d’Ameublement, Negative Entropy, and Pranayama series, as well as a new group of glass sculptures titled Anima.
