(9 August – 10 September, 2022) Heesoo Kim’s first solo exhibition with Unit London explores our shared contemporary experience through portraiture. In what the artist defines as an “expression of the mundane”, Normal Life is an accumulation of everyday observations. Surrounded by a society that constantly grapples for recognition and success, Kim’s body of work subtly engages with the mild sense of insecurity that is engendered by an achievement driven world.
Opening This Week
(9 August – 10 September, 2022) Matthew Stone’s debut solo exhibition with Unit London incorporates AI into his unique process for the first time. Virtual Paintings features a series of works on linen, 3D printed sculpture and hand-made wooden furniture. Using repeating imagery across these varying forms, Virtual Paintings charts a network of constellations all united by Stone’s unmistakable and poetic visual language.
Closing This Week
(1 July – 13 August, 2022) The Frith Street Gallery Summer Show Found Forms brings together work by gallery artists who start with a found object or material, transforming these objects or mediums into new and distinct forms. The exhibition will include Cornelia Parker’s Poison and Antidote Drawings, Tacita Dean’s Significant Form (Group Four), a group of Fiona Banner aka The Vanity Press’s Full-Stop Seascapes, a suite of ink drawings by Anna Barriball, a new set of prints by Raqs Media Collective, as well as two ‘mannequin’ sculptures by Daniel Silver. Found Forms highlights the sustained importance of the objet trouvé for contemporary artists.
(10 June – 13 August, 2022) This June, Daniel Sinsel presents a group of new and recent works – encompassing painting, assemblage and sculpture – marking his sixth solo exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ. Throughout the body of work, Sinsel mediates conventional notions of flatness and spatial tension, articulating unresolved scenographies that teeter on the threshold between illusion and reality. Meticulously rendered in alluring, near psychedelic fields of colour, the imagery is invested with a built-in tension of desire and restraint, through which Sinsel probes the manifold, often concealed narratives of queer experience.
(19 July – 17 September, 2022) Pilar Corrias is pleased to present Viridian Land, the Oslo-based artist Ragna Bley’s first solo show at the gallery. Presenting a new series of paintings, the exhibition draws from Bley’s longstanding interest in various narratives found within biology, literature and science-fiction.
(24 July – 3 September, 2022) BEERS London is extremely pleased to present the London debut solo exhibition of British artist Ross Taylor, entitled Time of the Season. Taylor’s dreamlike, whimsical landscapes link the fantastical and every day, through an extraordinary use of colour and his remarkable technical prowess – these landscapes, possibly located somewhere between his native Britain and his adopted home of Australia, present a nostalgic, sentimentalized view of the natural world.
(Opening 7 July) Through a Glass, Darkly’ features the works of three artists who make paintings that draw on but deliberately mis-remember, nudge and alter photographic source material that purportedly speaks of authentic cultural histories, memories and the ‘authentic’.
(6 July – 20 August, 2022) For the artist’s third exhibition with Lisson Gallery, Christopher Le Brun presents a comprehensive show that can be seen as a culmination of his work to date. The exhibition features some of his most ambitious work, including monumental triptychs and diptychs, providing an opportunity to see the development of modular compositions from singular pieces through to large and highly complex canvases.
(6 July – 20 August, 2022) The Italian artist Antonio Calderara’s career was marked by his gradual journey towards abstraction, although his earlier work was resolutely figurative, consisting of self-portraits, landscapes of the lake around the island of San Giulio in northern Italy and still life paintings. Lisson Gallery has, for the first time, gathered and loaned a number of these overtly representational, mid-century works, many of which have not been exhibited in public before, to chart the trajectory of his radical move towards a flattening and simplification of the world, while acknowledging that figures and objects – whether architectural, pastoral, domestic, personal or otherwise – would always somehow maintain a ghostly presence in his compositions.
(6 May – 25 June, 2022) TJ Boulting is proud to present our fifth solo show with Boo Saville. Ma is her most personal show to date, incorporating her renowned colour field paintings and detailed drawings with a narrative that draws on her own reflections on motherhood and journey of involuntary childlessness.
23 March – 15 May, 2022
