He is regarded as one of the leading exponents of the Chinese avant-garde and an emblematic figure in the field of international contemporary art. This exhibition provides a rare opportunity for London audiences to see at first hand the work of this exceptional artist.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Combining an intense sensitivity to material and craft with the humanist rationality of a philosopher, Chen Zhen&rsquo;s sculptural installations and constructions are at once physically grounded and mysteriously auratic. Through his own lived experience of the dichotomies of health and illness, and of cultural displacement and connectedness, the artist attained a heightened sensitivity towards the complex and fragile systems of human existence. After moving to Paris in 1986, he experienced constant changes in his cultural environment, which inspired him to incorporate the &ldquo;experience of assimilation and transcendence&rdquo; into his work to create an idiosyncratic style, combining traditional Chinese philosophy and Western practices.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A central theme in Chen&rsquo;s work is creating harmony through difference. Using the human body, illness, and medicine as metaphors, Chen explores the intricate and often paradoxical relationship between the material and the spiritual, community and individual, and interior and exterior. Using his concept of the organic whole, derived from Chinese medical theory, Chen constructs complete entities from disparate components, referencing the human body or an architectural model.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This exhibition presents a number of significant late sculptural pieces, including Lumi&egrave;re Innocente and Crystal Landscape of Inner Body as well the sound piece Instrument Musical and a number of wall-mounted Alters.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">***</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">A major exhibition of Chen Zhen&rsquo;s work &lsquo;Without going to New York and Paris, life could be internationalized&rsquo;, is currently on show at Rockbund Art Museum, Shanghai until 10 September 2015.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">With thanks to Galleria Continua, San Gimignano / Beijing / Les Moulins</p> Fri, 26 Jun 2015 19:04:25 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Ariel Narunsky - arebyte gallery - July 7th - August 7th <p>arebyte is delighted to present <strong>Judgement</strong> a solo exhibition by Ariel Narunsky.&nbsp;<strong>Judgement </strong>is an attempt to utilize the perception of stadiums as social monuments to create a mirror or monument to our contemporary society and the human condition.</p> <p>The project establishes concepts and views regarding motive, meaning, satisfaction, control, punishment and utopia, while all along grafting it with an internal monologue aimed towards the art world. The work offers a proposal for the UK&rsquo;s largest artwork, public or otherwise, that will be erected out of the existing infrastructure of the London 2012 Olympic stadium at the Queen Elizabeth Park.</p> <p>In the exhibition of Judgement the work of judgement is unveiled; the new work will offer a giant spiralled three-lane running track enveloped by a spiral wall. At its centre the track will continue underground through a tunnel, which eventually ejects you back on to the streets of London and back to your life. The construction, once erect, aims to be open around the clock for all to come and take part freely as a spectator or runner alike. Offering itself as a daily activity in the life of a community.</p> <p>The exhibition draws on the aesthetics and ideas of information centres and visitors&rsquo; centres and will be using these elements to form the basis of the installation. The installation will fill the gallery space with 3D printed models, as well as architectural plans and animated renderings; these are accompanied by what might be described as promotional posters, catalogues and screening of a film, &ldquo;Unknown Game With Ultimate things&rdquo; a video filmed in the stadium showing the early stages of construction of Judgement.</p> <p>This chosen language enables the ideas to shift between realms and fields, putting into question the parameters of the work itself. The manner of sincerity in which it is presented clashes with the idea it proposes; an idea, which sways between futility, humour, punishment and depth of heart; a joke, a critical observation or sincere solution.</p> <p>The gallery will have a small coffee table and some chairs, the installation will offer a place for the audience to sit and rest, have a drink and talk while immersing themselves in the work. From the sublunary to the phantasmal, salvation or hoax; this is our monument and our moment, this is Judgement and all of its derivatives.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Ariel Narunsky (born 1987) is a young upcoming artist. He graduated from Bezalel academy of art and design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. His work is not based in any specific medium; it is based on ideas by result of observation. Narunsky&rsquo;s works are often sparked by search for solutions, humour and his love for information. He deals with perceptions of society and existence; awakening issues of meaning, satisfaction, power and control; tackling the place of art in society, the artist as a prophet and the relation between artist, art and the public.</p> <p>His work is not limited in its fields of interest, and offers an accumulation of knowledge and concepts distilled into simple ideas. For his diverse body of work and thoughts he has been paired with many descriptions and nicknames that portray him as being medium-surpassed and a &lsquo;sweatless&rsquo; artist (an artist that does not sweat).</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p>---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p> <p>For press enquiries and images contact:</p> <p><strong>Tine Scharffenberg</strong></p> <p>Assistant Curator, arebyte</p> <p>E: tine@arebyte.com</p> <p>T: +44 7591 442106</p> <p>----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------</p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:05:32 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - Blain|Southern - London Hanover Square - July 10th - August 29th <p>Continuing its programme of exhibitions with notable curators, Blain|Southern is delighted to announce an exhibition of sculptural work curated by Tony Cragg.

Through transforming the premises into an environment of acousmatic sounds, Hardy brings forward an imagination driven encounter. The recordings, she has collected, cut and layered are results of physical and material processes that she engages with while producing work in her studio or installing work. Through merging accidental sounds such as the sound of wet cement being poured into a mould, wood being split, or metal reinforcing bar bouncing on the hard road as she carries it back from the builders yard to her studio with sounds with discarded parts of sculptural processes, Hardy instigates feelings of familiarity and unusualness, igniting illusory and at times descriptive images.<br /><br />Please join us for the weekly&nbsp;<a href="http://fig2.us9.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=dfce69bf07b544d85339211cf&amp;id=79fc751c3f&amp;e=aee357223d" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Curatorial Tour</a>&nbsp;on Wednesday and the&nbsp;<a href="http://fig2.us9.list-manage.com/track/click?u=dfce69bf07b544d85339211cf&amp;id=4433cd2fc3&amp;e=aee357223d" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Last Chance Exhibition Tour</a>&nbsp;on Sunday.</p> Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:37:10 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Robert Motherwell - Bernard Jacobson Gallery - June 25th - August 29th <p style="text-align: justify;">*<em>Book Launch and Private View on Wednesday 24th June from 6.30pm onwards</em></p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The book launch of "Robert Motherwell: The Making of an American Giant" by Bernard Jacobson at Hatchards Piccadilly is now fully booked.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Please join us for the private view of the exhibition at the gallery.</p> Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:29:32 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Marc Quinn - White Cube, Bermondsey - July 15th - September 13th <div class="expandable"> <div class="text ff"> <p style="text-align: justify;">White Cube is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Marc Quinn. This exhibition, Quinn&rsquo;s first at White Cube London since 2010, includes two new bodies of work and is the culmination of two years of investigation into natural phenomena and our distanced and complex relationship with the environment.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">&lsquo;The Toxic Sublime&rsquo; series are distorted, three-dimensional seascapes that blur the boundaries between painting and sculpture. They begin with an inherently contradictory artistic gesture whereby Quinn submits a photograph on canvas of a sunrise to a process of aggressive alteration. The photograph is first sanded and taped, then spray-painted through various templates comprising flotsam and jetsam gathered from the beach. Once this process is complete, the artist takes the canvas out onto London streets and introduces the impressions of drain covers into the surface of the work. This intrusion is suggestive of how water, which is free and boundless in the ocean, is tamed, controlled and directed by the manmade network of conduits running beneath the surface of the city.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The degraded seascapes are finally bonded to a sheet of aluminium, to be pummelled and contorted by Quinn to create sculptural hybrid objects that not only exhibit the formal elements of classical landscape painting but also are suggestive of something wrecked, as if a pictorial remnant discarded from some kind of physical disaster. Moreover, while all the works originate from the same image of an orange-tinted sunrise, they each emerge inherently unique, the result of a distinct physical and material manipulation.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Alongside these paintings, a new series of sculptures, minimal arcs in stainless steel and white concrete, including one measuring over 7m long, form part of a body of work titled &lsquo;Frozen Waves&rsquo;. These primal, gestural shapes originate from the remnants of shells, eroded by the endless action of the waves. In the moment before they disappear and become sand, all conch shells end up in a similar form &ndash; an arch that looks like a wave, as though an unwitting self-portrait by nature. With titles referencing the science of fluid dynamics, Quinn captures this ancient action of time and tide using the most recent three-dimensional technology. Copied and extracted on different scales, and then cast in stainless steel or concrete, the result appears like a sculpture of a wave yet also something primordial and ambiguous, mined from the depths of time; a reminder that the forces that shape nature are more powerful &ndash; and will last longer &ndash; than us, however much we interfere with the planet. Elegant and minimal, they point to a magical material transformation: the crystallisation of movement into form.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>In Broken Sublime (The Hunger)</em> (2015) and <em>Broken Sublime (The Invention of Tools) </em>(2015) the artist presents us with two stainless steel sculptures modelled from real shells which have been broken into by people, to extract the flesh within them &ndash; a reminder that our relationship with nature is, and always will be, shaped by our basic human urges.</p> </div> </div> Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:22:52 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Michael Samuels - Rokeby - August 26th - October 16th <p style="text-align: justify;">Michael Samuels new installation at the gallery reacts to the immediate architecture and space whilst responding to the wider context of the gallery. For his first show at the new space Samuels intends to create an immersive and contemplative environment, which nods to the domestic, and the materials from which his work derives, whilst providing a meeting place and site of enquiry for the audience.<br /> <br /> New work will be hung alongside collected ephemera and furniture, which has been sourced by the artist with the exhibition in mind. Materials will be available to handle alongside carefully selected books, which provide access to Samuels working process and modes of thought. In questioning the usual structures of display audiences will be encouraged to utilise the exhibition as an informal environment for sharing knowledge and immersing themselves within the work itself.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Michael Samuels' practice can historically be characterised as a form of contemporary bricolage. He utilizes industrially produced Modernist furniture, domestic objects, and most recently cast concrete, which through their displacement and reconfiguration into abstract forms disrupts any functional reading of the elements. However in his new installation the artist may still maintain the notion that abstraction is only ever possible in relation to function but introduces functional objects from which the work is created to once more question the boundaries of form and function.<br /> <br /> Michael Samuels has most recently been included in NGORONGORO at Lehderstrasse 34, Berlin and In Sch&ouml;nheit Auferstehen, Galerie Patrick Ebensperger, Berlin. He has had solo exhibitions in public spaces including Spacex, Exeter and Villa du Parc, Centre d&rsquo;art Contemporain, Annemasse, France, Kunsthal KAdE, The Netherlands, The Zabludowicz Collection, London, The EDF Foundation, France, LABoral Centro de Arte y Creaci&oacute;n Industrial, Spain.

Curated by Hana Noorali and Lynton Talbot, the exhibition features performance, film, painting and sculpture and points towards a way of working informed by the vernacular of technological landscapes and an openness to collaborative exchange.&nbsp;Establishing a timely discourse that asks questions about the dissemination of information and the use of language as artist material, <em>The boys the girls and the political</em> encourages a fluid and immersive reading of the way in which these artists work.</p> Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:13:19 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list - Hales Gallery - July 7th - August 8th Wed, 24 Jun 2015 07:01:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list
