VALIE EXPORT : THE 1980 VENICE BIENNALE WORKS
Nov 28, 2019 - Jan 25, 2020
The 1980 Venice Biennale Works presents VALIE EXPORT's innovative multimedia installation from the 39th Venice Biennale, which embodies the fierce and fearless interrogation of oppressive power structures and hierarchical systems of control at the heart of the artist's practice.
 
Her first solo exhibition at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London, the exhibition marks a key moment for the internationally acclaimed artist. Originally shown alongside Maria Lassnig in the 1980 Austrian Pavilion, the sexually charged Venice Biennale installation employs a combination of investigative photography, sculpture and novel image-making techniques, challenging audiences by examining the politics of the body, eroticism, the male gaze and liberation.

MARC BRANDENBURG : SNOWFLAKE
Feb 6 - Apr 4, 2020
Marc Brandenburg's first UK exhibition, Snowflake will present a series of new drawings that explore the conditions of life at the fringes of society. Referencing Chuck Palahniuk’s 1996 novel Fight Club in the exhibition's title, Brandenburg addresses attributes that are increasingly the object of censure and ridicule in contemporary society: sensitivity, vulnerability, trauma, a lack of stamina, and the understanding of uniqueness as innate to all individuals. Larger-than-life scenes from a protest march are presented alongside smaller images of faceless figures – masked, heads bowed, or fully covered – severed from their surroundings and appearing cocooned or in free-fall amidst an expanse of undefined space.
