03.09.21 - Amie Siegel's 'Asterisms' premieres at the 34th São Paulo Biennial
Premiering tomorrow: Amie Siegel, Asterisms (2021) at 34th São Paulo Bienal
Amie Siegel’s expansive new work Asterisms explores geological and social displacement processes on a planetary scale, focusing on the specific context of the United Arab Emirates. Siegel leads us through the process of constructing artificial islands in Dubai; through migrant labor camps that supply manual work for gold factories and oil recovery; through the surreal landscape of a royal palace where Arabian horses are bred and trained for show; through an abandoned village almost completely submerged by the desert sand... Each of these segments unfolds in a different cinematic aspect ratio and is projected onto a shape that floats between a wall and a sculpture. Derived from the superposition of the various projection formats, the shape resembles a stylized star, or asterism – an informal group of stars and the lines used to mentally connect them, whose form we can identify in the night sky, if we look hard enough.
Siegel’s continuous slide projection Surrogates (2016) will also be shown as part of the Bienal. The relationship between the female body, the copy and its sculptural context is evoked in a dialogue between projected image and pedestal, as images of rupture and repair on the bodies of classical sculpture in the Naples National Archaeological Museum emerge and disappear in turn.
Exhibition dates: 4 September - 5 December 2021
25.08.21 - Caragh Thuring limited edition print now available
Caragh Thuring, ‘Island Fever’, 2021, a limited edition lithograph print produced on the occasion of work by her being acquired for Tate’s collection of British art.
‘Island Fever’ is Thuring’s first lithograph print and features many of the motifs that occur in her paintings, including a silhouette of a submarine, a brick wall pattern and, most prominently, an erupting volcano.
She explains “I’ve always been fascinated by their subterranean mystery, and the fact that they destroy themselves as well as build themselves from underneath”.

24.08.21 - Panel discussion with Michael Landy

Tickets for the in person event at Firstsite, Colchester are now sold out, but you can watch the discussion online via a live stream. Please book your ticket here.
The discussion takes place on Wednesday 25 August at 7pm.

13.08.21 - 'Ashes' at Turner Contemporary extended
Steve McQueen’s ‘Ashes,’ at Turner Contemporary has been extended until 26 September.
The two-channel video installation by Steve McQueen was filmed over ten years, on two separate visits to Grenada. A homage to the protagonist - Ashes, a young man and friend of McQueen's, who was killed by drug dealers - it is also a poignant rumination on life, death and lost potential.

29.07.21 - Phillip King CBE PPRA, 1934 - 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Phillip King, one of the most ground-breaking British artists of the last 70 years.
Phillip died peacefully with his wife Judy at his side.
We were blessed to have worked with Phillip in the last eight years of his life, during which time he re-taught us that art and sculpture-making should know no rules or limitations. His curiosity, joy, and sparkle were boundless and contagious, and we will miss him dearly.
Phillip was born in Tunis in 1934 to a French mother and English father. In 1945 he moved to London and went on to study modern languages at the University of Cambridge. He eventually enrolled at St Martin’s School of Art where he met Anthony Caro and the New Generation group of artists, who would go on to completely revolutionise sculpture from the 1960s onwards.
A real free-spirit and risk-taker, Phillip worked tirelessly throughout his life experimenting with materials, forms and colours, seldom repeating himself, as he moved from periods of working in steel, ceramic, polyurethane, found objects as well as bronze and stone. He would rarely make preparatory drawings, rather referring to shapes and colours that would appear to him in dreams. He was a modest man, entirely committed to his rigorous exploration, rarely missing a day in the studio right up to the end of his life.
Phillip loved to be surrounded by younger artists and loved to teach, taking up professorships in the UK, Europe and the US. In 1967 he was appointed a trustee of Tate, and from 1999 to 2004 he was President of the Royal Academy of Arts.
His works are installed in public spaces around the world, from Australia and Japan to Scandinavia, China and the US, and are represented in some of the most important museum collections including Tate, Pompidou and MoMA. His final major public project, La Ronde de Rennes, will be unveiled later this year in the French city of Rennes.

22.07.21 - Work by Cecily Brown to be auctioned for ClientEarth
