TURSIC & MILLE: STRANGE DAYS
June – July

Click to enlargeTURSIC & MILLE : STRANGE DAYS
Jun 22 - Aug 7, 2021
“The question of images does not interest us as such, nor does the subject, which is perhaps always the question of painting itself. But what is a painting? Images are simply references to an era — physical or digital stigmata of our time. As such a portrait can become, once transformed into a painting, a still life. Our painting develops empirically, according to the times, the general climate, in short, according to the weather. ”
– Tursic & Mille
 
Galerie Max Hetzler is pleased to announce Strange Days, Tursic & Mille’s first solo exhibition in the UK. Featuring twelve paintings and two sculptures, each of the works represents one month out of the past twelve. Serving as a kind of calendar, the exhibition emphasises that painting is always about time, and its absurdity.

Click to enlargeMY HEAD IS A JUNGLE: MANJIT THAPP
Jul 20 - Oct 31, 2021
This Summer, NOW Gallery will be consumed by a jungle conceptualized by Birmingham born illustrator Manjit Thapp. The Camberwell college of art graduate is NOW Gallery’s young artist of the year 2021. Her painterly, iconographic style will be lifted from the page to create her first immersive commission. Explore a combination of large- scale murals and sculptural exotic spaces.
 
Thapp is known for depicting a broad range of proud women, and in particular a young Asian protagonist who is a central character in her work. Symbols of a red sun, snakes, tigers, tropical flora often reoccur in her renderings.
Using the jungle as a vehicle for exploring the scrapbook of collected emotions in our minds from overgrowing thoughts, tangled feelings, hidden fears and wild growth. Thapp will be creating work that has a fragmented narrative, acting like pages in a diary that documents the contemporary female experience. Set out in a maze-like structure that mirrors hitting dead ends, moments of light, dense shadows and working your way through your own feelings.
 
“Bringing to life everyday feelings, musings, reflections, inner thoughts and conversations with yourself highlighting how art can be used to channel emotions.” Manjit Thapp
 
“Thapp’s drawings are gentle, yet confident and empowering. The exhibition will question how creative processes can be used to focus and distill thoughts.” Kaia Charles

Click to enlargeIS THERE SPACE FOR EMPATHY : ENNI-KUKKA TUOMALA
May 21 - Aug 8, 2021
The Nunnery Gallery is proud to present the first UK solo exhibition by the Finnish artist Enni-Kukka Tuomala. Tuomala’s artistic practice is focused on empathy. Through her works she aims to transform empathy from an individual feeling to a collective and radical power.
 
Tuomala’s exhibition this summer will examine what empathy means in 2021, in post-Brexit, post-Covid, post-colonial Britain, and what role it should play in helping us re-enter public life and re-discover physical closeness with each other. Her immersive works make empathy – an often abstract and intangible feeling – into something physical and tangible we can touch, see and feel. Tuomala will ask us to consider:
 
Is there any space left for empathy?
How could we re-learn to be physically close again?
What will it take to make us feel safe with each other again?
How could we practice being together?
What’s the process of re-entry into physical public life?
What does public + private space stand for in 2021?
 
For years Tuomala has been exploring the spaces between people: investigating the public, social, personal and intimate distances between us and how they influence our abilities to meaningfully connect with one another. In trying to understand why the unoccupied space between us is primarily defined as “negative space” through the absence of physical entities – as oppose to “positive space”, defined through the existence of emotional entities – Tuomala hopes to reframe how we occupy and share space.

ALMUTH TEBBENHOFF: WHO WILL BUY MY DARK DARK WORLD
Oct 17, 2020 - Aug 14, 2021
Almuth Tebbenhoff presents an exciting new ceramic installation that explores feelings of darkness and hope during the pandemic.
 
‘Who Will Buy my Dark Dark World’, consists of a group of sculptures that she started making during the autumn of 2019, as the world was heading towards the pandemic.
 
The pieces veer between bleakness and hope, greedy for life, anticipating eventual death. The rusty steel boxes in Inferno have been landscaped and populated with groups of little hollowed out clay cubes, contrasting with the fresh green patch of paint foreseeing hope and change.
 
Tebbenhoff explores the idea of emptiness, whether as loss of life or just being lost in space and wondering how to find one’s way home. Dwellings is a formation of clay boxes with open sides that aren’t real boxes, rather just suggestions of them. Whether aiming to protect like an open cage with no constraints, or just defining an invisible volume – they are both precious and strong.

TERENCE COVENTRY: VITAL IMAGE
Mar 31 - Aug 14, 2021
Inspired by an interview with Terence Coventry exactly 10 years ago, this exhibition explores sculptures and works on paper whose vital images convey both great power and tenderness. Coventry’s work is charged with energy and life, capturing the essence of an animal or human figure – whether on the move or in quiet contemplation.
 
After studying at Stourbridge School of Art and then at the Royal College of Art, Terence Coventry was posted to North Devon on National Service. It was following his discharge from the army that he decided to put his artistic pursuits to one side, setting up home, and farm, on the Cornish coast. For the following thirty years Terence Coventry’s natural talent as an artist lay dormant while he worked the land and watched the animals that surrounded him.
 
Year after year the shapes and forms of his environment embedded themselves deep in his psyche. Living and working in an isolated environment, he could fully absorb the textures, sounds, rhythms, movements and vibrance of the natural world with no distractions. He developed an acute awareness of animal behaviour, and continuously stored images of them in their natural habitat – from gulls gliding down on the thermals, to the bulls in the surrounding fields bursting with energy and power.

Jun 25 - Sep 26, 2021
The 2021 shortlist presents four highly individual artists, whose bold wide-ranging projects cover geographical territories from Algeria to China and explore issues affecting both the local and the global.
 
From Poulomi Basu’s uncompromisingly complex depiction of conflict in Central India, Alejandro Cartagena’s scathing critique exploring the repercussions of homeownership and developments in northern Mexico, to Cao Fei’s dystopic multi-media fabrications that consider the enormous impact of technologies on lived experiences and Zineb Sedira’s generous auto-fictive exploration of memory, culture and belonging. All of the nominated projects use photography as a means of challenging political realities to convey subjective truths.

THE PICTURE LIBRARY
Jun 25 - Sep 26, 2021
The Picture Library, organised in collaboration with The Guardian Foundation, delves into the legendary Guardian picture library, to explore photojournalism across the 20th Century and the various ways in which a liberal press employs images to elaborate themes such as feminism, nationalism, post-colonialism, racism, industrial relations, immigration, class and the climate crisis.
 
Featuring over 300 images, the exhibition mirrors the non-hierarchical nature of the library itself. Images are filed according to ‘subject’ and ‘personality’; individual photographers are accorded no particular status and images once deemed significant or newsworthy alongside the obscure and forgotten. It also offers unique insights into the daily workings of a traditional picture editor, and features rarely seen working press prints, contact sheets, editing notes and other newspaper ephemera.

LIGHT YEARS: THE PHOTOGRAPHERS’ GALLERY AT 50
Jun 26, 2021 - Feb 1, 2022
Light Years is a special four-part exhibition series in celebration of TPG’s 50th anniversary.
 
Arranged around four thematic displays each ‘chapter’ draws on rarely seen materials from the Gallery’s archive to explore key moments or movements in both the Gallery’s history and the Photography landscape more widely.
 
The Photographers’ Gallery was founded in London’s Covent Garden in 1971 by Sue Davies, OBE as the first publicly funded gallery in the UK dedicated to the exhibition, exploration, education and development of the photographic medium. From the outset it has been instrumental in promoting photography’s value to the wider world and ensuring its position as one of our most significant art forms.

Click to enlargeGUY HADDON GRANT : MIND'S EYE
Jul 13 - Aug 14, 2021
Singled out by renowned critic, writer, and broadcaster Lucie Edward Smith as an “influential” sculptor who is outpacing established authorities in the contemporary art world, Haddon Grant (b. 1986) continuously demonstrates impressive dexterity in his inspired approach to concept, material, and process.
 
Enter Guy Haddon Grant’s studio with us. His monochromatic sculptures and drawings occupy a space between abstraction and figuration. His sculptures ascend with casual spontaneity and disruptive force; his drawings, ephemeral in nature, grapple with the tension between density and lightness. Caught in between the traditional and contemporary worlds, Haddon Grant loosens his stroke, abstracting natural forms, prefencing dynamism and emotion over surgical accuracy. At this intersection, classicism bleeds into contemporaneity.
 
In this upcoming exhibition, we encounter a new body of work driven by explorations around memory and space. Take for instance the Blackboard Studies. On hand made chalkboards, Haddon Grant chose to draw a litany of bones and vertebrae that have been strewn throughout his studio space for years. Magnifying and rendering their familiar yet alien forms, he records a history of his creative environment with these ossified remains. This line of aesthetic investigation interrogates and rearticulates personal tropes that define a decade of his artistic practice.
 
The exhibition space amplifies the highly dialogic environment of the studio which informs Haddon Grant’s practice. Sculptures in a familiar totem format speak to large scale cloud drawings, flirt with small charcoal studies, and bounce off newer chalk drawings. Mediums intermingle, sculptures begin to inform drawings and vice versa. The works move seamlessly between abstract motifs that are figurative in aspect and visceral structures that seem to follow an internal psychic schema. Mother, a figurative totem sculpture, explores Haddon Grant’s new curiosity with archetypal groupings, universal symbols, and other primal human individualities. Harnessing the collective unconscious as an ephemeral medium, Haddon Grant captures complex yet familiar human stories in sync with our times and balanced with historical precedence.
