This is the fourth solo exhibition at White Cube by Larry Bell, a leading exponent of the California &lsquo;Light and Space&rsquo; movement. The exhibition includes three early glass installations: <em>Gone but not Forgotten</em> (1969), <em>Corner Lamp SB 8</em> (1980) and a large, &lsquo;Standing Wall&rsquo; improvised sculpture (1994&ndash;2015) as well as collages on paper and new, kinetic &lsquo;Light Knot&rsquo; sculptures.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Throughout his career, Bell has focused on the properties of light and its interface with surface. He began as a painter in the 1960s, but soon made work with mirrors to produce three-dimensional constructions. It was through these initial investigations that he discovered an industrial vacuum plating process called &lsquo;thin film deposition&rsquo; and in the late-1960s, Bell acquired a large, walk-in vacuum chamber for his studio.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">During the &lsquo;70s and &lsquo;80s, Bell's glass works included monumental 6 x 8 foot, coated panel sculptures called &lsquo;Standing Walls&rsquo;. These panel sculptures are often installed as improvisational configurations on site. The evaporative metallic and quartz films that Bell deposits in a vacuum environment on the glass surfaces, as well as on paper and plastic, create light, interference, colours and reflectivity. For the viewer, these coatings appear as &lsquo;light on surface&rsquo; without changing the material characteristics of the surface.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Gone but not Forgotten installed at the entrance of the lower ground-floor gallery, consists of four thin strips of glass, coated with Inconel, a nickel-chrome based alloy. Direct illumination on the shelves produces the visual image of a three-dimensional drawing doubled by reflected coloured light on the wall. This work is one of the few surviving examples of Bell's first experiments with the plating process. Bell continued these projection-enhanced works by creating a series called &lsquo;Corner Lamps&rsquo;. &lsquo;Corner Lamps&rsquo; are a quarter of a circle of vacuum coated glass, installed in a wall corner and lit at a particular angle from the ceiling by a halogen lamp. The projected light transmits a dual triangulation of refraction and illusion in colour, above and below the glass. Bell states that corners are a &lsquo;most commonly ignored element&rsquo;.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">To coincide with a major presentation of a &lsquo;Standing Wall&rsquo; installation of thirty-two, six foot square glass panels (c.1989&ndash;2014) currently on show at the Chinati Foundation, Marfa, Bell has installed <em>6 x 8 An Improvisation</em>, in the centre of the lower ground-floor gallery at Mason&rsquo;s Yard. Of this work, Bell remarked: &lsquo;I wanted the work to operate in my peripheral vision as well as my direct vision.&rsquo; In so doing, he responds intuitively to the surrounding space, creating an environment which invites and envelops the viewer within a sequence of layered reflections and shapes, converging hues and densities and the illusion of volume.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The smaller lower ground-floor gallery includes three &lsquo;Vapor Drawings&rsquo; on coated paper from 2004. Bell&rsquo;s &lsquo;Vapor Drawings&rsquo; are created in the vacuum chamber by masking out areas, similar to a stencil. As in all the materials that Bell coats, the paper is bent, folded or crunched, or angled for gradient or other effects as the metals and quartz rake over the surface.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Upstairs in the ground-floor gallery, a new series of &lsquo;Light Knot&rsquo; sculptures suspended within transparent cases, create an inter-play of fluid, complex mirrored forms that appear gravity-defying and weightless, almost calcified in mid-motion. The sculptures, all titled &lsquo;3D VD&rsquo;, are made from pliable, vacuum coated, curvaceously-shaped sheets of polyester film absorbing and reflecting their surroundings, and ceaselessly shifting into a multitude of emergent shapes and colours.</p> </div> </div> Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:24:30 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Evren Tekinoktay - The Approach - September 3rd - October 4th Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:21:33 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Marcus Coates - Kate MacGarry - September 11th - October 24th Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:16:12 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Albert Irvin - Gimpel Fils Gallery - July 24th - August 28th Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:13:31 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Sasha Litvintseva, Hannah Catherine Jones, Idit Elia Nathan - IMT Gallery - July 23rd 12:00 PM - 9:00 PM <p style="text-align: justify;">Filmarmalade and Marmalade are proud to present a new film by Sasha Litvintseva, an operatic performance by Hannah Catherine Jones and a book launch by Idit Elia Nathan.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"><em>Kremlin and the Odyssey (Exile Exotic: part 1)</em> is the first iteration of Sasha Litvintseva&rsquo;s project , that explores and connects notions of exile, large-scale tourism, architectural nostalgia, Russian architectural history, contemporary politics and her own recent experience. The film will run from 12:00 noon until 9:00pm.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The soundtrack of Litvintseva&rsquo;s film, <em>a song of the sirens that seduces Odysseus to waiver on his long journey home</em>, is by Hannah Catherine Jones, who will perform her work for the film live at 8:00pm.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Additionally from 6:00-9:00pm Marmalade, Publishers of Visual Theory will present Idit Elia Nathan&rsquo;s new artists&rsquo; bookwork, <em>Please Watch U R You Head</em>, the title of which is the warning that greets visitors to the roof of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. For Nathan this warning seems like an apt metaphor for a city with its own psychiatric syndrome named after it: &lsquo;Jerusalem Syndrome&rsquo;.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Sasha Litvintseva has recently exhibited work at Union Pacific gallery, London, Carlos/Ishikawa gallery, London, Neues Museum N&uuml;rnberg, and at Image/Movement, Berlin.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Hannah Catherine Jones is the founder of the Peckham Chamber Orchestra.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Idit Elia Nathan has recently presented work at the Standpoint gallery, London, Aid &amp; Abet gallery, Cambridge and at the Parasol Unit for Contemporary Art, London.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">The event is free</p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Filmarmalade is an artists book work publisher and DVD label specialising in contemporary artists╩╝ film and video works.

Appropriately it has the architectural features of a garret. For all of Neil&rsquo;s streetwise credentials, and his political allegiance to the working man, he knows that painting must happen in a special space, away from the public gaze. Painting is not an entertaining performance. Again, this makes Neil unfashionable. But what has become integral to Neil&rsquo;s practice is painting as material alchemy, and in these paintings he has used an array of unconventional materials, from concrete to ground glass.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Let&rsquo;s be specific. &ldquo;In Bloom&rdquo; is a triumph of Neil&rsquo;s relentless experimentation. We can trace his painting of blossom back through this show. It is always a poignant symbol of loss as much as of regeneration. Neil has his own reasons for the subjects he chooses but it is never the role of the viewer to question what motivates an artist, only bear witness to what they have made. More importantly, what distinguishes painting from illustration is a distance between the origins of the subject matter and what it subsequently is transformed into. It is the difference between an image being of something, and a painting being a new reality.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Excerpt from the catalogue introduction by Clive Head</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> Tue, 07 Jul 2015 10:17:24 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Thomas Eggerer - Maureen Paley - July 17th - August 23rd <p>press release <br /> <br /> <strong>THOMAS EGGERER <br /> <em>OZONE</em></strong><br /> &nbsp;<br /> <strong>17 July &ndash; 23 August 2015 <br /> <em>private view: Friday 17 July 6.30 &ndash; 8.30pm</em></strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><br /> &nbsp;<br /> Maureen Paley is pleased to present the second solo exhibition at the gallery by New York-based artist Thomas Eggerer. </p> <p>Thomas Eggerer was born in 1963 and studied at the Art Academy in Munich, Germany before moving to the US in the mid 90s where he eventually became a member of the artist collective Group Material. By the late 1990s his focus returned to painting and he has been exhibiting this work extensively over the last fifteen years. </p> <p>Using a pictorial language between abstraction and figuration, Thomas Eggerer&rsquo;s paintings are inhabited by anonymous figures that are absorbed in degrees of action or exchange. They are observed from an elevated perspective and choreographed into arenas of colour. Forms of currency such as money, cigarettes or cans of beer are held and gestured towards, suggesting modes of social transaction with intent.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The work 'evokes a contemporary condition of internal splitting or dis-location' as discussed by&nbsp;David Joselit in his essay <em>Time Zones</em> published in Artforum in January 2014. He identifies Eggerer's application of paint using processes of sketching, stuttering, dripping and staining that make his subjects appear at once dismantled and stitched together. </p> <p>Thomas Eggerer&rsquo;s work has been selected by Ralph Rugoff to be included in the 13th Biennale de Lyon: La Vie Moderne, France, that opens this September.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><br /> <br /> Solo exhibitions include Richard Telles, Los Angeles, 2014; <em>Gesture and Territory</em>, Petzel Gallery, New York, 2013<em>; In der Pyramide</em>, Galerie Buchholz, Cologne, 2011; <em>The Rules of the Fence</em>, Friedrich Petzel Gallery, New York and <em>Fence Romance</em>, Galerie Buchholz, Berlin, 2010; <em>Thomas Eggerer in conversation with Jacob van Ruisdael and Pieter Saenredam</em>, curated by Karel Schampers, Frans Hals Museum, The Netherlands, 2008; Atrium, Kunstverein Braunschweig, Braunschweig, 2003; <em>Matrix 148</em>, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, 2002. </p> <p>Selected group exhibitions include <em>13th Biennale de Lyon: La Vie Moderne</em>, Lyon, France (forthcoming 2015); <em>Painting 2.0: Expression in the Information Age</em>, Museum Brandhorst, Munich, Germany (touring to MUMOK Vienna, Austria), 2015; <em>Abandon the Parents</em>, Statens Museum for Kunst, Copenhagen,&nbsp; Denmark, 2014; <em>Tell It To My Heart</em>: Collected by Julie Ault, Museum fur Gegenwartskunst, Basel, Switzerland; Kultergest, Lisbon, Portugal, 2013; <em>Compass in Hand: Selections from the Judith Rothschild Foundation Contemporary Drawing Collection</em>, MoMA, New York, 2009; <em>Passageworks:</em> <em>Contemporary Art from the Collection</em>, SFMOMA, San Francisco; <em>Idle Youth</em>, Gladstone Gallery, curated by Russell Ferguson, New York, 2008; <em>Eggerer, Baer, von Wulffen</em>, Augarten Contemporary, Galerie Belvedere, Vienna, 2008; <em>The Painting of Modern Life</em>, Hayward Gallery, London and Castello di Rivoli, Turin, 2007; <em>The Undiscovered Country</em>, UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, 2004; <em>Baja to Vancouver &ndash; The West Coast and Contemporary Art</em>, traveling exhibition: Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Vancouver Art Gallery, CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, Seattle Art Museum, 2002-3; and <em>Painting on the Move &ndash; Nach der Wirklichkeit</em>, Kunsthalle Basel, 2002.</p> Tue, 07 Jul 2015 10:08:19 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Holly-Anne Buck, Collagism, Shuby - Scream - July 4th 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM Sun, 05 Jul 2015 10:58:59 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list http://www.artslant.com/lon/Events/list Luca Manini, Holly-Anne Buck, Collagism - Tate Britain - August 1st, 2014 - August 31st <p>Six themes will be explored for each month of the duration of&nbsp;<em><a href="http://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/display/bp-spotlight-source" rel="nofollow">Source</a></em>&nbsp;Spotlight Display, at Tate Britain in August 2014 exploring&nbsp;<em>Texture and&nbsp;Collage.</em></p> <p>Collage has been practiced as an artists&rsquo; technique since the early twentieth century.
