Click to enlargeRACHEL WHITEREAD : INTERNAL OBJECTS
Apr 12 - Jun 6, 2021
"As an artist you create a language, you create depth to a language, you change the language."
—Rachel Whiteread
 
Gagosian is pleased to present "Internal Objects", an exhibition of new work by Rachel Whiteread.
 
Whiteread employs the formal language of Minimalism, taking cues from its emphasis on geometric seriality, yet adds a quietly emotive aspect, maintaining an acute sensitivity to objects’ minor details and subtle markers of use and human irregularity. Over the past four decades, she has used the method of casting on both “low” materials such as concrete, resin, rubber, and plaster, as well as more traditional sculptural materials, such as bronze. Whether they take the form of monumental public installations or small, intimate objects, Whiteread’s forms imply hidden narratives and secret histories. She employs existing artifacts and spaces—including domestic objects like chairs and mattresses, interiors of rooms, and even, famously, an entire terraced house—to evoke and explore corporeal presence. Notably, her deft use of negative space can imply a thing that’s gone and been reincarnated.
 
In this exhibition, this suggestion of haunting, or ghostliness, is manifested in a different way. In "Detached 1", "Detached 2", and "Detached 3" (all 2012), which she installed at Gagosian London in 2013, Whiteread rendered the empty interiors of three garden sheds in concrete and steel. Now, in "Internal Objects", she has again created cabin-like structures but has, for the first time, eschewed casting existing objects in favor of building original ones. "Poltergeist" (2020) and "Döppelganger" (2020–21), which will occupy the two main rooms of the Grosvenor Hill gallery, are made of found wood and metal that has been meticulously overpainted in white household paint.

Click to enlargeMERCEDES AZPILICUETA : BONDAGE OF PASSIONS
May 19 - Jul 4, 2021
Fuelled by collaboration with dancers, writers, researchers and craftspeople, her installations often take the form of intricate set designs, theatrical props, soundtracks and scores for a live performance that doesn’t yet exist, therefore inviting the viewer to take centre stage.
 
Calling herself a ‘dishonest researcher’, Azpilicueta navigates across multiple geographies, chronologies and fields of knowledge, ranging from literature and art history to popular music and street culture, in a loving pursuit of subversive and contested historical figures —queer, feminist, exiled and unheard voices from the past— who haunt her videos, sculptures and textiles.
 
The exhibition at Gasworks offers a speculative vision of Catalina de Erauso, a 17th-century nun from the Basque Country who travelled to the New World, where s/he lived under male identities and became a ruthless lieutenant in the Spanish colonial army. Azpilicueta's show presents newly-commissioned Jacquard tapestries alongside a new body of sculptures, costumes and props.
 
Mercedes Azpilicueta’s exhibition is commissioned and produced by Gasworks.
 
Gasworks commissions are supported by Catherine Petitgas and Gasworks Exhibitions Supporters.
 

 
Mercedes Azpilicueta is an artist born in La Plata, Argentina. She was an artist in residence at the Rijksakademie, Amsterdam in 2015-16, and received the Pernod Ricard Fellowship in 2017. Solo exhibitions include Museion, Bozen (2020); Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2019); CentroCentro, Madrid (2019); and MAMBA, Buenos Aires (2018). Her work has been featured at Villa Vassilieff, Paris; REDCAT Gallery, Los Angeles; MACBA, Barcelona (all 2018); CA2M, Móstoles (2017); Onomatopee, Eindhoven (2016); TENT, Rotterdam (2015); and the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin (2014).

KALLIOPI LEMOS
Permanent
One of the most beloved pieces at FRIEZE Sculpture in London’s Regent Park last November has found a permanent location. Kalliopi Lemos’ giant steel sculpture The Plait has been acquired for the
public sculpture collection Rotterdam. At a height of no less than six and a half meters, The Plait will be unveiled on International Women's Day. The Plait is the title of the slender steel sculpture by the London-based, Greek-born artist Kalliopi Lemos (1951). The Plait, made in 2020, is an upright cut off plait of dark brown hair of monumental proportions. Kalliopi Lemos is best known for her large -scale public installations of everyday objects, sometimes of colossal size. The Plait raises questions about the role of femininity in modern society and rebels against patriarchal coercion. The Plait is the first work by a female artist on the sculpture terrace. The sculpture terrace was founded in 2001 during
Rotterdam European City of Culture. The Plait connects to the theme of the human figure of which the sculpture terrace displays examples. Ranging from modern classical bronzes by Auguste Rodin
(l'Homme qui Marche, 1907) and Henri Laurens (La Grande Musicienne, 1938) to more abstract works by Fritz Wotruba (Reclining Figure, 1969) or Joel Shapiro (Untitled, 1999). Today, the international
ensemble on the sculpture terrace forms the centerpiece of a much larger collection that can be found throughout the city. After the devastating destructions in May 1940, when the historical city
centre was destroyed by heavy Luftwaffe bombing, Rotterdam was rebuilt and contemporary public sculpture was regarded a vital component for the inhabitants of the new city. Works by renowned artists such as Ossip Zadkine, Alexander Calder, Henry Moore, Marino Marini and the Rotterdam-born Willem de Kooning a.o. were purchased or commissioned. This collection has grown over the
years and will now be enriched once more. The Plait is the first addition to the terrace since 2001. Twenty years later, Monday, March 8, 2021, The Plait will be unveiled.

Mila Askarova (founding director) says, “we are very proud to have an international platform to showcase important artists from Azerbaijan and give voice to the region’s history in the UK. ” The exhibition will debut a new series of artworks by Salakhova.

FRANK BOWLING
May 21 - Jul 31, 2021
Over the course of six decades, Bowling has relentlessly pursued a practice which boldly expands the possibilities and properties of paint, resulting in works of unparalleled originality and power which have redefined the course of abstraction. Bowling‘s inaugural exhibition at Hauser & Wirth in London reveals a new body of works by the British artist. In July 2021, Arnolfini, the International Centre for Contemporary Arts in Bristol (UK), will open a solo exhibition of Frank Bowling’s work as part of the institution’s
60th anniversary.

May 21 - Jul 31, 2021
Hauser & Wirth in London is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Ellen Gallagher opening on 28 May 2020.Drawing on ostinato architecture of jazz, the social experimentation of science fiction and the syntax of Minimalism and Conceptualism, Ellen Gallagher has created a body of work over almost three decades that transforms found figurative imagery and abstract forms into what the writer Greg Tate has called ‘chiaroscuro roadmaps,’ charting the maze of postmodern representation, race, beauty and belonging. Over a highly multifaceted career, Gallagher’s work has been united by what she calls a ‘jitter’, an intellectual approach in which aesthetic possibilities are shook loose from seismic cracks beneath the surface of cultural entities normally thought to be unshakable and impermeable.

MATTHEW BARNEY: REDOUBT
May 19 - Jul 25, 2021
Matthew Barney: Redoubt reveals a major new direction in the work of a renowned artist and film-maker.
 
It features a series of imposing and intricate sculptures cast from fallen trees and over 40 engravings and electroplated copper plates.
 
The film follows a sharp-shooter in her pursuit of wolves across the winter wilderness of Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains. She is accompanied by two dancers moving in dialogue.
 
Barney appears in the film as an artist in the employ of the US Forest Service. He tracks and observes the hunter while making a series of copper etchings.
 
A hoop dance by an indigenous contemporary choreographer is the catalyst for the wolf hunt’s dramatic conclusion.
 
The film has been hailed as ‘breathtakingly beautiful’ by the New York Times.
 
It uses choreography to weave together the story of Diana and Actaeon, cosmology and modern American political narratives.
 
Barney explores the dynamic relationship between humanity and the natural world, and the role of artistic creation.
 
The etchings featured in the exhibition were produced on location. The large-scale sculptures are cast from the burnt remains of trees from the region.
 
Barney combines traditional casting methods and digital technology to create artworks of formal and material complexity that reflect on the story told in the film.

IGSHAAN ADAMS: KICKING DUST
May 19 - Jul 25, 2021
Adams' cross-disciplinary practice combines aspects of weaving, sculpture and installation whilst exploring concerns related to race, religion and sexuality.
 
Drawing on the material and formal iconographies of Islam, his intricate textile works also reference the socio-political histories of creole communities.
 
The exhibition takes the form of a single immersive environment. It consists largely of new works that have been produced for the occasion.
 
Each work, and the exhibition as a whole, is composed of multiple patterns. These explore the potential of woven material to reflect the multiplicities of Adams’ own identity and of broader cultural interchange.
 
Throughout the exhibition, Adams builds on this sense of movement and journeying. Visitors encounter pathways through the gallery created by the placement of weavings on the floor.
 
The pathways resemble tectonic forms, like the nature of the weave itself. They evoke ‘desire lines’, paths that pedestrians take intuitively rather than following set routes.
 
For Adams, desire paths are human traces in a terrain that represent both freedom and transgression. This sense of ‘desire’ comes across strongly in Adams’ practice as he seeks to liberate himself from homogenous constructs of identity.

“Mirror” is the first solo exhibition of works by Scottish painter Alan Rotz. The show consists of large-format canvases and a special edition artist’s book featuring a previously unpublished series of eight female erotic photographs taken by the artist alongside the documentation of the corresponding eight paintings. Installed in a confined space the canvases divide the interior into two equal intimate narrows, where it is impossible to move away from the paintings further than the touching distance. All of the included works were made to be shown their rectos or versos or both sides to the viewer. For the occasion of the “Mirror” exhibition artist has chosen specifically to present only the backsides of the paintings, censoring the front images and making them accessible to the public only via printed and digital reproductions.

UNTITLED 2019
Jun 7, 2019 - Jun 6, 2021
The Institute of Contemporary Arts is proud to present a newly commissioned permanently sited work by Rirkrit Tiravanija.
 
Tiravanija is known for a practice that overturns traditional exhibition formats in favour of social interactions through the sharing of everyday activities such as cooking, eating and reading. Creating environments that reject the primacy of the art object, and instead focus on use value and the bringing of people together through simple acts and environments of communal care, Tiravanija’s work challenges expectations around labour and virtuosity.
 
Open to the public and situated within the ICA’s lower bar, untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) comprises a sake bar with communal seating and tables set within a painted sunrise and sunset. Purpose-built for the ICA, the work includes crockery hand-crafted in Tiravanija’s Chiang Mai studio and lighting created in collaboration with artist Rafael Domenech.
 
untitled 2019 (the form of the flower is unknown to the seed) marks Tiravanija’s return to the ICA, following his participation in the landmark exhibition Real Time in 1993.

KATRIN FRIDRIKS: A CERTAIN BLUE ENTERS YOUR SOUL
Apr 12 - May 9, 2021 FINAL WEEK
From 12 April until 9 May 2021, A Certain Blue Enters Your Soul will present Fridriks’ newest body of work which focuses on the centrality of blue to our universal histories and aims to underline JD Malat Gallery’s role as an encompassing space for the London public to reconnect after the lockdown period.
 
Composed of 14 new major works and accompanied by a text by the writer Sebastian Di Giovanni, this exhibition highlights the significance of blue throughout the world and its history.
 
Inspired by the multifaceted symbolism of blue, from its representational and material value in art to its ubiquitous presence throughout the world, this new body of work seeks to emphasise the encompassing and connective power of blue in terms of its natural, cultural and historical
significance.
 
The title of the exhibition recalls the work and words of the French artist Henri Matisse (1869 – 1954). Renowned for his intense colourism and use of blue, Matisse pioneered the revolutionary use of colour as an index of emotion or expression. By framing her work under Matisse’s wellknown phrase “a certain blue enters your soul”, Fridriks strives to emphasise the perduring role of blue within a wider discussion concerning the unity of being.
 
Crediting her influence to key figures such as the Persian poet Rumi (1207 – 1273), the English writer and philosopher Aldous Huxely (1894 – 1963) as well as the American astronomer and Katrin Fridriks, Cosmic Stargate - Portal Activation, 2021, Acrylics on canvas, 100 x 165 + 5 cm
cosmologist Carl Sagan (1934 – 1996), Fridriks’ work to date has presented a unique fusion between art and their diverse branches of research. Informed by their different discussions about natural and otherworldly forces, as well as their theoretical discussions concerning the unity of being, Fridriks takes a meditative approach to the creative process.
