Deutsche Bank Collection LIVE - Meet the Artist: Adriana Czernin

Adriana Czernin, Selbstportrait II, 2018

Adriana Czernins has lived and worked in Vienna, the capital of fin de siècle and opulent Art Nouveau ornamentation, for decades. Thus, Czernin’s early works of nude female bodies, floral patterns, and intricate ornamentation are akin to journeys into the depths of Austrian modernism. However, Czernin has long since reduced and geometrized her formal language. In the process, she drew inspiration for an entire series from a work in Vienna’s Museum of Applied Arts: a tableau of wooden ornaments from the pulpit of Cairo’s Ibn Tulun Mosque from 1296. Whereas previously the female body was enmeshed in ornament, in Czernin’s work the ornament is a metaphor for social and personal entanglements. The artist breaks with the strict symmetry of the over 700-year-old work. She removed ornamental elements, creating a dynamic composition of seemingly free forms that spread out across the pictorial space. Friedhelm Hütte, the curator of the exhibition, talks [...]

Chisenhale Gallery presents Wasted Mud, the first solo exhibition in a UK institution by Shanghai-based artist Yu Ji. Comprising sculpture, video, print and performance, Yu Ji’s work often responds to a specific context or location to examine the interplay between the human body and its surrounding space.

Motivated by an acute sensitivity to materials, Yu Ji’s work explores a tension between physical matter and energy. Recurring materials used in her work, such as cement, wood, metal, plastic and organic matter all have their distinctive characteristics, tactility and ‘temperatures’. In her installations, these materials oppose, rub and strike against one another; proposing by their proximity how they might merge, combine or absorb one into the other.

Influenced by research conducted during a residency at our exhibition partners Delfina Foundation, in 2019, Yu Ji’s new commission sees London as a site to explore the body in [...]

Yu Ji: Spontaneous Decisions II

Centre Pompidou x West Bund Museum Project, Shangahi, China, 27.04.–08.08.2021

Yu Ji: Spontaneous Decisions II

Yu Ji, Spontaneous Decisions II, Centre Pompidou x West Bund Museum Project, 2021

After “Remain Calm”, the project by Nile Koetting presented in 2019-2020, Gallery 0 is hosting Shanghai based artist Yu Ji, whose artistic research over the past ten years has focused on the work of time in the face of the rapidly changing urban world. Her work evokes sculpture as a perpetual project in which mass, texture, materials and form compose a temporary landscape. Working in situ using each specific location and context, she creates a liminal space between two worlds, a sensitive field to host opposing forces and produce fertile accidents.

Yu Ji’s practice is based on the techniques of sculpture, a traditional medium that she reinterprets through installations, performance and video. The duration and manual transformation of materials are central to her work. Her Flesh in Stone series, begun in 2012, places particular importance on the sculptural process and relates to the principle of imprint through the direct contact between the object and its [...]

Nilbar Güreş: Le Salon Turc, part of ULAY WAS HERE

with Pierre Bal-Blanc, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam

Nilbar Güreş: Le Salon Turc, part of ULAY WAS HERE

Nilbar Güres, Under the Skin, 2019

Upon invitation from the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, in the framework of Ulay Was Here (21.11.2020 – 30.05.2021), de Appel presents:

Here is Ulay with

Georgia Sagri (20.11.2020 – 18.01.2021)
Pierre Bal-Blanc ft. Nilbar Güreş a.o. (19.01. – 30.05.2021)
Lotte Reimann (02.03. – 30.05.2021)

Working at the intersection of curatorial and artistic practice, Pierre Bal-Blanc proposes Le Salon Turc, a ‘conversation score’, written in response to Ulay’s own notation of his 1976 action Irritation: there is a Criminal Touch to Art. By reading the conversation score as it appears right below this text, viewers can find out more about the sculptural contribution of artist Nilbar Güreş as well as the selection of a painting from the Stedelijk’s collection by Jean Brusselmans and a musical theme by Camille Saint-Saëns.
