Johan Rosenmunthe

Johan Rosenmunthe Work from Enlargements. “Johan Rosenmunthe’s installation utilizes an image taken from the Empire State Building down on the roofs of Manhattan and shows printed crops and zooms into that single image. Part of the exhibited images are posters pasted directly to the wall, others are ‘framed installations’ of images. The master image is […]

Gedi Sibony

Gedi Sibony Work from his oeuvre. “With his sensitive handling of hollow-core doors and commercial carpet, Gedi Sibony is one of several young Biennial artists doing exciting things with sculpture. “I have a family history with these materials; my father was a contractor,” says the 32-year-old New Yorker. His playful transformations of crude elements—like foam […]

Jerry Birchfield

Jerry Birchfield Work from his oeuvre. “Back and fill is a term that refers to a series of small movements for maneuvering a sailboat through a narrow area. It is also an idiom that refers to reneging on a previous statement or promise. It is appropriate here for describing the work of Jerry Birchfield, as […]

Mateo Tannatt

Mato Tannatt Work from his oeuvre. “Tannatt tends to circle complex political or sociological themes and then deliver works that are open and unstable, never unlocking the problems at their centre. For ‘Rendezvous Vous’, Tannatt reprinted the building’s notice of abandonment but, erasing the central chunk of its text, drew keyholes over it. He also […]

Carla Scott Fullerton

Carla Scott Fullerton Work from her oeuvre. “Carla Scott Fullerton is deeply engaged with sculpture, investigating materials process involved in construction and deconstruction, those being old and new.

Chris Wiley

One is you feel like you’re walking along at a particularly quite time of day in a suburban/urban area, noticing all the odd, mundane, but strangely beautiful detritus around the streets. Second is the Japanese concept of […]

Erika Vogt

Erika Vogt Work from her oeuvre. “Vogt arranges groups of sculptures throughout the space, reiterating the vocabulary present in the videos and drawings. These sculptures invite tactile engagement, and derive their form both from found objects as well as invented ones. There are, for example, knobs, a jig, a window sash, wood scraps, a guide, […]

Gabriel Kuri

Gabriel Kuri Work from “punto y línea en el altiplano“. “Galleria Franco Noero announce the opening of its new exhibition space in Turin, with “punto y línea en el altiplano,” an exhibition of new works by Gabriel Kuri. This is the third solo show of the Mexican artist for the gallery. Shown in the former […]

Magali Reus

Magali Reus Work from her oeuvre. “Through the way the works are presented, by the appropriation of objects, and thanks to the use of colour, two identifiable thematic series thus gradually come to the fore: on the one hand, sporting imagery, with training sessions and gym equipment (rings, wall-bars and wallbrackets, and various training mats), and, on the other, the […]

Cady Noland

Cady Noland Work from her oeuvre. “Michèle Cone: Practically every piece I have seen of yours in group shows or in your one-person shows projects a sense of violence, via signs of confinement — enclosures, gates, boxes, or the aftermath of accident, murder, fighting, boxing, or as in your recent cut-out and pop-up pieces — […]
