RENEE SO : ANCIENT AND MODERN
Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 12, 2020
An exhibition of new ceramic and textile works by Renee So, created during a residency at West Dean College.
 
Renee So’s exhibition is comprised of an entirely new body of work. It includes hand-woven textiles, furniture, and ceramic works that refer to representations of the female figure in prehistoric cultures. A tiled mural is based on the Egyptian goddess of the night, Nut, her body bent in a yoga-like pose in order to provide shelter to the earth; other ceramic sculptures are reminiscent of pre-Columbian figurines of Venus. These continue So’s on-going investigation into ceramic vessels that people across the world have made to drink and eat out of for thousands of years.

Click to enlargeMIKHAIL KARIKIS : I HEAR YOU
Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 19, 2020
This autumn sees the launch of a major new commission by Mikhail Karikis that explores the relationship between listening and care. Karikis’ new moving image installation has developed with Project Art Works, an artist-led organisation in Hastings that collaborates with people with complex support needs. Focusing on interactions between carers and non-verbal people who use Project Art Works’ studio spaces, Karikis invites us to pay attention to the sensitive tuning-in of support workers, artists and family members to those they support – a precarious role that is often invisible, misunderstood and undervalued by society.

Focal Point Gallery is pleased to present ‘The World After’, a newly commissioned work and exhibition by artist David Blandy. Comprised of a film, installation and game, ‘The World After’ is a fictional tale which imagines a world after the Anthropocene era, a time in which humanity’s activities had detrimental effect on earth’s climate and environment. In this future world, human influence on the planet has faded following a catastrophic man-made ecological crisis, with those who remain having to find new ways to survive and form kin.

Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 5, 2020
‘Bharti Kher. A Wonderful Anarchy’ is an exhibition of new work by Bharti Kher, following her three-month residency with the gallery in 2017. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at Hauser & Wirth Somerset and marks a return to the most elemental themes within her practice. Kher, who works across a multitude of forms, will present a body of sculpture, installation, paintings and a new outdoor work. In the process of transforming found objects, and continually experimenting with materials, she layers references: to the mythological and scientific, secular and ritualistic, physical and psychological.

DAVID SMITH. FIELD WORK
Sep 28, 2019 - Jan 5, 2020
‘David Smith. Field Work’ is the debut solo exhibition by the eminent American artist at Hauser & Wirth Somerset. The exhibition has been conceived as four chapters of work spanning over three decades (from 1933 to 1964) to demonstrate Smith’s diverse visual language and multifaceted creative process. Curated by the artist’s daughters Rebecca and Candida Smith, co-presidents of the David Smith Estate, the exhibition situates itself between the drawn image and sculpted form to investigate the relationship between the two parallel practices.
