Olivia Erlanger

Olivia Erlanger Work from Material Studies. “Vivid, warm light fills the room and spreads over the desk as I sit and work at my computer. Daylight disappears slowly, burning, falling, bathing the Hudson River in washes of gold and rose. And while I am sure the sunset is spectacular, I keep my back turned, ignoring […]

Sven Lukin

  Sven Lukin Work from his oeuvre. “Lukin’s steady move into actual space culminated at the end of the 1960s in what is probably his best known work—an undulating 120-foot long wall relief in green, pink, and orange, permanently installed at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, New York. The next 30 years of Lukin’s […]

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. She questions how forms and formless structures sit together, juxtaposing material forms through processes and playing with shapes that relate to architecture. She works with heavy industrial […]

Niels Trannois

Niels Trannois Work from B (hands in a chinese cookie jar) at Valentin. “Niels Trannois’s paintings can be understood as fragments of the fictional scenario of what could happen if reality were to absent itself, no doubt the submerged side of a world in abeyance overrun by figurative resurgences, ready to hide away or be […]

Ethan Cook

Ethan Cook Work from Lobstee. “It seems only right that Ethan Cook would choose to title this exhibition after a one-word poem by Aram Saroyan. Like Saroyan, Cook tends to lean towards the minimal, favoring an approach centered on visible process, understated gesture, and economy of form. Keen to find aesthetic potential in unassuming sources, […]

Nick Relph

Using a four-harness floor loom, Relph has fabricated a series of weaves using materials including polyester, rayon, silk, monofilament, latex and paper. The weaves are presented at Chisenhale as part of a specially conceived […]

Laine Godsey

Laine Godsey Work from Pruning Tips. “The pleasure in Godsey’s work lies in the sensation of losing my sense of the outer boundary of my body in relation to the figures she creates. It is like viewing my pink, internal ductwork in a sun-lit, public space. As I write this, I am embarrassed that I […]

Felix González-Torres

Felix González-Torres Work from his oeuvre. “González-Torres was known for his quiet, minimal installations and sculptures. Using materials such as strings of lightbulbs, clocks, stacks of paper, or packaged hard candies, his work is sometimes considered a reflection of his experience with AIDS. In 1987 he joined Group Material, a New York-based group of artists whose […]

Alex Fischer

Alex Fischer Work from Dry Pixels and Wet Molecules at O’Born Contemporary. “Alex Fischer’s latest body of work counter-poses the primordial origins of biology against today’s dominant technology-based vernacular. In earnest, the artist acknowledges through his practice elements peculiar to the time of his being. Put in alternative terms, Fischer concedes that the acts of […]

Rana Begum

Rana Begum Work from Manifold at Christian Lethert. “We are very delighted to present Manifold, Rana Begum’s first solo-exhibition in Cologne. The London-based artist is exhibiting a new body of work comprised solely of white folded steel sheets, which originate from studies in paper. The vivid colours that Begum applies on the back of the […]
