Unit London – Heesoo Kim: Normal Life

(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.

Kristin Hjellegjerde (London Bridge) – Forrest Kirk: Temple Run

Hannah Barry Gallery – Sholto Blissett: Ship of Fools

(2 July – 13 August, 2022 ) Presenting a new body of work that pushes the physical and psychological stature of his visual language, this exhibition continues his exploration of the aesthetics of “Nature” and how our contemporary moment continues to challenge the ways in which we have historically chosen to understand our place in society and in the natural world. Composed of twelve paintings spread across each floor of the gallery, the exhibition draws from and evolves his previous work to create a rich vision of shifting imaginary landscapes, inhabited by a detailed and uncanny mosaic of architectural, marine and topographical forms. Together these images trace the manufactured and spectral relationship that society continues to have with nature and its place in the natural environment; and with deeper, more profound questions of home, identity and nation.

Sadie Coles HQ (Davies St) – Katja Seib: Old World New Thoughts

(29 June – 13 August, 2022) Katja Seib’s second exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ comprises a group of new paintings and works on paper. These reveal a newly autobiographical focus, featuring depictions of her partner, their child, and other people from her life. And yet, throughout Seib’s latest works, ‘real life’ is poised to slide into a dreamlike register – refracted by symbolism and historical imagery.

Frith Street Gallery (Golden Sq) – A Summer Show: Found Forms

Cecilia Brunson Projects – Paulo Pasta

(1 July – 12 August, 2022) Paulo Pasta is widely regarded as one of Brazil’s most prolific and accomplished contemporary painters. Over a nearly four-decade-long career, he has committed himself wholeheartedly to the medium of painting. Traversing landscape and abstraction, Pasta has consistently demonstrated his mastery of colour and form on the two-dimensional plane. He is spoken of in Brazil as an artist’s artist. His name will often surface in conversation when speaking to a wide range of current Brazilian painters. They will typically reference him as a mentor, a teacher, or a foundational influence on their generation. Many speak of him as the torchbearer of the country’s strong tradition of artistic pedagogy – a particularly Brazilian expectation that knowledge, technique, and thinking should be passed from one artist to another.

Gazelli Art House – Khaleb Brooks: Can I Get A Witness

(1 July – 13 August, 2022) Through a multi-faceted approach, Can I Get A Witness depicts Brooks’ childhood within a black, female-led home. The intimate display features medical scans memorialising the artist’s body before undergoing gender affirming surgery, alongside mixed media imagery grappling with the historical policing of black women, and empowerment as a subsequent tool of survival. Through these elements, the artist simultaneously weaves themes such as femininity, girlhood, queerness, family and the black church.

Sadie Coles HQ – Daniel Sinsel

(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.
