DONNA HUANCA – THE BELVEDERE MUSEUM

Peres Projects is pleased to announce the opening of Donna Huanca’s solo exhibition at the Belvedere Museum, curated by Stella Rollig.
In the Baroque chambers of the Lower Belvedere, Donna Huanca creates an artistic parallel world using sculpture, large-format painting, video works, and soundscapes. Models, whose bodies are transformed with colours and textiles, meditatively move about the space in deep concentration. They are dynamic components of a cosmos, in which visitors embark on a journey from artificial light to mythical darkness, much like superficial perception can lead to insight and recognition. Huanca’s ‘models’ interact with their own environment and the room on their own accord. The artist makes reference not only to the architecture of the palace, but to the exhibition Egon Schiele. Pathways to a Collection, which will take place simultaneously. The gaze upon the naked body, questions of ‘forbidden’ curiosity and sensual pleasure, as well as the relationships between artist, model, and public become as relevant in the face of Egon Schiele’s works as they are in the experience of Donna Huanca’s stagings. Continuous engagement with the human body, its presence in space as well as its use as material and medium of art, is a central aspect of Huanca’s multidisciplinary work.

Strange Messengers

Manuel SOLANO

With a Beard, 2018

Painting – Acrylic on canvas

154 x 180 cm (61 x 71 in)

 

September, 2018 update: the rise of right-wing nationalism still seeping across Europe, visible and banal as sweat stains on t-shirts after this ‘uncharacteristically’ hot summer (read: climate change). The energy that is spent on the daily task of filtering out what we are not able to emotionally handle has us drained. Every week there is a planet in retrograde. We are surviving so far.

Peres Projects presents Strange Messengers, a group exhibition presenting strategies and reflections on navigating contemporary life including works by Dorothy Iannone, Ad Minoliti, Donna Huanca, Rebecca Ackroyd, Manuel Solano, Jack O’Brien and Steffen Bunte.

Strange Messengers approaches the impossible task of interpreting the murky semiotics of contemporary life and the seven artists included act as messengers. Their role is both to relay as well as to enact. They are the strange and non-normative. The messages they deliver are vague, obscure, resisting categorization and slipping out from an often violent, patriarchic gaze. The message is at times unintelligible and frequently non-verbal. It depicts non-discrete and alien-like bodies, appendages and extensions of each other or disappeared entirely. Representations of the body in all of these artists’ work is a crucial reflection of the denudation not only of attire, but also of movements, expressions and societal conventions. They aim to disassemble and make visible the work that goes into being a body. These perspectives are vital in today’s unstable world, offering us not only modes of survival, but paths towards fulfillment.

With her erotic narratives, the work of Dorothy Iannone is the historic catalyst for the exhibition, out of which a larger and contemporary discourse emerges. Iannone’s work depicts women’s refusal of shame and states of ecstatic pleasure and through it, we are reminded of how we arrived at where we are now. The messages that pass across generations, between people involved in the same struggles that have lasted eons. Linear time is collapsed in order for us to listen forward and backward to our sisters.

These struggles are the continual confrontations of existing under the hegemony of a social context that demands that we be and love and work under the constraints of normative culture. Every motion therefore is a disruption within the contemporary context. These disruptions have now transcended categorical gender and sexual binaries in favor of more fluid, personal identities. These identities now challenge to push forward the hard won mainstream acceptance of feminism and homosexuality. The artists articulate this confrontation, act it out, and are created from it.

The works in this exhibition function both as objects and signifiers delivered by our strange messengers. The construction of these objects is a mode for the production of better spaces and futures, and the deciphering and interpretation of these new visual languages and signs are necessary in calling these futures into the present. As Iannone’s generation did in the 1960’s, we once again find ourselves at a cultural crossroads. Our messengers propose the road less traveled.

Rebecca Ackroyd – Mademoiselle, CRAC, Sète

Peres Projects is happy to announce Rebecca Ackroyd’s participation in the upcoming exhibition Mademoiselle, opening this Friday at Centre Régional d’Art Contemporain OccitanieMademoiselle, curated by Tara Londi, is a collective exhibition that brings together a new generation of international artists, exploring the stakes (and paradoxes) related to contemporary femininity, through a wide range of mediums and subjects. Referring to the recent ban on the title “Mademoiselle”, and inspired by the #Metoo movement, the exhibition exposes the manifold heritage, expansion and evolution of feminist art strategies and theories today.

It is with a candid or calculated disregard for conventions and taboos that the artists explore the convergence of diverse feminist histories with other aspects of identity politics and social critique, supplanting the concept of a singular feminist narrative and identifying contemporary obstacles for women’s emancipation.The artists elaborate on violence, prototypes of domestic bliss, maternity, social and personal relationships, collective rights, individual empowerment by hedonism and narcissism, media visibility and a general sexualization of culture. They reflect upon pervasive models of ‘youthitude and femininitude’ – embodied in the concept of the Young-Girl – as desirable ideals in consumer society and culture at large and as regulators of integration and success within it.

All is questioned with a sensibility that is above all colored with an unprecedented brand of humor which seems not only to provide the critical distance to assess both the gains and the losses of feminism but also to serve as a winning strategy to negotiate new possibilities of feminist practices and ideology.

AD MINOLITI – DOLLHOUSE

 

OPENING: JUNE 29, 2018

THROUGH: AUGUST 03, 2018

Peres Projects is pleased to present Dollhouse, Ad Minoliti’s (b.1980, AR) first solo exhibition in Berlin. As implied in the title of the exhibition, Minoliti employs the symbology of dollhouses in new wall murals and paintings in order to understand and present non-binary alternatives to contemporary social hierarchies, specifically those based on gender roles and sexuality.

The western notion of dollhouse toys were introduced in the 17th century as both a display of the wealth contained in one’s home, and primarily as a pedagogic tool parents and institutions used to instruct girls on household management. Young girls were shown that their world revolved firmly around the home, a place where they could aspire to support the goals of their husband and children. In more contemporary times, though superficially stripped of these more literal pedagogic traditions, dollhouses are still typically introduced into the play of young girls to serve the same function.

Minoliti’s stacks of brightly colored acrylic paintings architecturally reference the backside of these dollhouse toys, allowing us to peer into the “rooms” of an alternative social narrative. At the same time, the gallery is populated by Minoliti’s printed paintings on canvas which present queer interiors inhabited by geometric cyborgs. These digital paintings are hung, juxtaposed on top of large scale, hand painted wall murals which conjure wall paintings in a child’s playroom.

Instead of the familiar feeling of visiting our childhood home where all of our favorite toys have shrunk, evoking a sense of nostalgic distance, the blown up scale and immersive quality of Minoliti’s installation presents us with these objects as if for use in our adult lives. This superimposition of these alternative childhoods onto our adult identities, challenges us to question the validity of binary logic and social hierarchies at large.

When I was a teenager, I would make photonovels with metaphysical and geometrical characters; it was a sort of critique of the repressive and conservative themes most commonly used by metaphysical painters to discuss essentialist truths. I would have legs and modern chairs involved in heterosexual tragedies, or scenes involving buildings and plants to represent, respectively, masculinity/rationality and femininity/the organic, until I finally understood that to really expand those relationships I had to try to extract the human from the equation: modernist thought handed down to us a binary logic of the world. Masculine/feminine, culture/nature, order/chaos, evil/good, are mere discursive constructions to disguise, perpetuate and legitimize domination. And so, if this discourse was behind the metaphysical paintings I was studying, what was left out of their reductive avant garde? Infinite possibilities.

Rebecca Ackroyd – The Mulch – Open for Gallery Weekend

Rebecca Ackroyd’s (b. 1987, UK) debut solo exhibition at Peres Projects, The Mulch, opens for Gallery Weekend Berlin. Ackroyd’s work is vital in today’s chaotic world, offering us modes of survival in dream-like fictional landscapes, informed by tough realities. This exhibition basks in a warm glow from the windows, which are colored red to change the quality of the light.

Ackroyd’s practice involves digging down into existing objects and memories and reconfiguring them into something new. In The Mulch, we see groups of shells and figurative sculptures made from chicken wire, plaster, collage, etc. The shells are giant in scale, yet skeletal, and burn with a fiery intensity next to the larger than life figures. These human forms wear spectacles, masks and motorcycle helmets, confronting us with their stark rawness, they present us with new notions of femininity and and power. In contrast to the self contained power-figures, the walls are peppered with paintings on paper which, having a soft, velvety surface and flowing lines, evoke a vulnerable tenderness and exquisite painterly quality.

Finally, the installation is anchored by a group wall sculptures which evoke shutters, most are battered and charred except for a metal shutter painted pink. Some of the shutters are collaged with black and white images of the rough texture of London streets, some cut from newspapers, and some photographed by the artist herself in the vicinity of her studio. These images are photocopied and layered to combine familiar urban textures with more personal responses to an environment.

Austin Lee – Tomato Can – Opens Friday 19 January

Austin Lee’s Tomato Can opens tomorrow. Join us from 6PM to be among the first to see Lee’s first solo exhibition in Berlin.

Tomato Can

Austin Lee

January 19  – March 2, 2018

Opening Friday, January 19, 6–8PM

Peres Projects is pleased to present Tomato Can, the first solo exhibition in Berlin of American artist Austin Lee. Lee’s impetus for making art capitalizes on his obsession with a digitally and technologically advancing world, the impact this has on contemporary culture, society, politics, and how it affects the way we look at art. Lee’s ambition in this body of work is to ask the viewer to question the relationship between digital manipulation and physical experience, and the exhibition functions as an intersection between reality and a surrealism driven by technological advancement.

In Tomato Can, Lee focuses on paintings which are executed based on digital sketches and painted on canvas with an airbrush. The works follow basic compositional forms, have a flattened spatial depth and are heavy on primary colors, a nod to Lee’s digital sketching process. Lee’s choice of color is based on the purpose of stimulating light and creating intense vibrations, reminding the viewer that the primary way of thinking about color today is in the context of the digital realm. However, the way our computers display color is only an imitation of the way we as humans biologically process it. The human eye is sensitive to three different wavelengths of light – red, green and blue, but by combining these three signals, the brain creates millions of different hues.

With so much of our brain activity devoted to vision, Tomato Can is an effort to translate this activity into perceptual reality. Rooted in perception, interpretation, emotion and action, Lee’s latest exhibition is led by the question of how to take the invisible and make it visible.

Austin Lee (b.1983) lives and works in New York. He received an MFA in Painting from Yale School of Art and a BFA from Tyler School of Art.

Peres Projects’ opening hours are Monday through Friday, 11am – 6pm.

Beth Letain – The Company She Keeps

Peres Projects is pleased to announce Canadian artist Beth Letain’s first solo show at the gallery. Letain will exhibit a range of her most recent paintings, including the Every Other series, and never seen before large format works.

“The Company She Keeps” will open Thursday, 16th November 2017 at 6PM.

We hope you can join us.

The Weight of a Scale

In a recent translation of the Pentateuch, it was discovered that Jacob’s ladder is actually a ramp. This news was not all bad. The ramp, helpful when moving a couch, is useful because it displaces weight; a ramp is a shape for adjusting a burden.

The forms of Beth Letain, however, are mostly square, to use the term loosely. Her lines wobble. Her gravity is evasive. Letain’s paintings rearrange the metaphysical schema and her ladders, shoddy at the rungs, are not made for climbing.

Despite having ramps, ascension in ancient Egypt was tough too, and it was governed by a ritual called the Weighing of the Heart. In this ceremony a soul was appraised and given an afterlife if the heart was found weightless when measured against a feather.

In Letain’s pictures there is no such standard. Her paintings don’t ease the soul by satisfying taste. Instead her forms wander on and off the scale as if they’re trying to see what you are trying to weigh. Her pictures are curious about your measurements, curious about what you’re looking at. Letain uses the form of Painting to misplace the burden of gaze. Her pictures shy away from physical metaphor, words get slippery. And if her paintings hold any gravity, it’s probably equal to the weight of your scale.
– Aaron Weldon
Peres Projects is pleased to present Beth Letain’s first solo show at the gallery. Beth Letain (b. 1976, Canada) is a Berlin based, Canadian painter who graduated in 1999 from McGill University with a degree in biology. She later went on to study painting at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design from 2005, and completed her MFA at SUNY Purchase College, NY in 2008.

Melike Kara’s Köpek opens at Peres Projects

Peres Projects is delighted to announce Melike Kara’s second solo exhibition at our Karl-Marx-Allee gallery. Kara will exhibit a range of works in different media, including painting, sculpture, and unique digital prints.

Melike KARA (b. 1985, DE) lives and works in Cologne, Germany. Kara studied under Rosemarie Trockel at the Dusseldorf Art Academy. The artist has an upcoming solo exhibition at Yuz Museum, Shanghai, CN, and will take part in the group exhibition (X) A Fantasy, at DRAF, London, UK. 

We hope that you can join us for the opening of Melike Kara’s exhibition, titled “Köpek”, at 6PM Thursday, 7th September.

Press Release:

You can argue how migration stimulates the economy, or try to explain how structural racism happens anywhere. You can debate the validity of the nation state, and claim that identity is constructed like a flag on the moon. You might call for radical change, but that doesn’t change how people feel about these topics. How they feel depends on who they are, where they are, and how they’re able to relate their particular past. Our memories leave marks, and as the body remembers things it establishes habits. Even though everyone’s body and past are unique, many share a comparable experience. 

Aware of these complexities, Melike Kara’s work addresses the basic ideas of what it means to belong, and how people behave when they have to deal with each other. In her second exhibition at Peres Projects, Kara uses painting, sculpture and photography to explore questions of identity through those of anonymity. As before, Kara’s paintings depict figures which do not seem to belong anywhere but on the canvas they inhabit. Virtually bare, the works represent scenes of human interaction without any reference to gender, age or culture. They might be gods, or end up being monsters. The artistic choice to refuse any such allusions enhances the symbolic quality of the figures that have become emblematic for the artist. This refusal is used to create a pattern of potentiality, defying mere ambiguity. The point that the figures could be anyone isn’t necessarily interesting, rather it is their potential best or worst, the polar divide, which determines them. Like this, the usage of anonymity which characterizes the figures’ identity becomes ornamental, like jewelry, worn to seduce and daunt.

The figures are overtly acting out their function, displaying a wide array of conduct and social mechanisms. Behavior that happens anywhere, anytime. The artist looks at how people touch each other, how they love and fight. She throws them together and isolates them in the brutality of their own presence. As they are made to interact, individuals naturally oppose each other, this seems to exist universally. With analytical precision, Melike Kara tests the psychological breadth of her images, by juxtaposing her figures’ instability with the power which they conjure as a group. There is a fundamental humility to these paintings, as their core idea is rooted in the living body, embracing the chages of life as we live it.

In this exhibition, Melike Kara approaches anonymity in different ways. On another layer, she installed photographic wallpapers which depict places in Germany and Turkey. The images are devoid of people, yet suggest at a human presence through architecture, collected flowers, and a gravestone. Whereas the paintings refuse to make reference to a place or time, the photography decidedly refers to the contemporary state of these worlds, which the artist calls her home. The pictures taken in Turkey are extremely personal, raising question of the self in light of one’s own family history. How much of the self is a composition of our background? Where does my family’s imprint end and where does my identity begin? The German photography, on the other hand, is not related to the artist’s biography. Here, she documented closed market stores owned by second or third generation Turkish immigrants, bringing up the topic of cultural integration and its economic value, how one can be immersed in another culture but never really belong, and how our visibility renders us invisible, denying us access.

The main problem of the concept of diaspora, is the general misconception that people belong to a certain territory when historically, people have always moved around. To claim territory is problematic in many ways and it can lead to jealousy and the fear of loss. However, claiming territory for the weak or marginalized can be an honorable thing to do. But what if those who are marginalized use the same strategies of exclusivity and marginalization of others? What if love always hurts?

David Ostrowski at The Blueproject Foundation

Peres Projects is delighted that The Blueproject Foundation in Barcelona will show David Ostrowski in a major new exhibition at the highly reputed foundation. His first exhibition inside Spain, BEI MIR GEHT ES IN DEN KELLER HOCH collects major works from David Ostrowski’s studio and a new installation that takes up the entirety of Sala Project space, the specially designated area for an artist to display a work or theme at The Blueproject Foundation in El Born, Barcelona.

BEI MIR GEHT ES IN DEN KELLER HOCH shows a broad range of David Ostrowski’s works in a personal exhibition that takes strong direction form the artist himself.

The press release for the exhibition states : David Ostrowski (b. 1981) has created an “oeuvre of paintings that comes almost eerily close to the idea of this kind of zero point, while simultaneously reminding us of the impossibility of ever truly getting there”, as Daniel Schreiber explains in a reference to Roland Barthes’ famous zero degree. “According to Barthes, every artwork always also conveys the illusions of the culture in which it was created and whose language it employs. The mesh of everyday myths is ineluctable, the thicket of codes impenetrable. And yet the desire for a zero point is vital. Without this desire, art would be inconceivable”, explains Schreiber.

Ostrowski became known for his characteristic gestural paintings, this exhibition creates a fantastic opportunity to discover the artist’s exploration of the surface of the canvas, and his experimentation with the picture plane.

BEI MIR GEHT ES IN DEN KELLER HOCH is at The Blueproject Foundation in Barcelona, July, 14 through October, 01.

FEEDBACK at Marlborough Contemporary, New York

We are delighted that not just one, but three of our represented artists are exhibiting at the Marlborough Contemporary summer group exhibition – titled FEEDBACK. The show, curated by Leo Fitzpatrick, asks us to consider what impact an artist’s connection to the wider world has on their creative output. Defying the long held idea that art is only made in the studio, FEEDBACK takes a fresh look at how the life of an artwork is shaped by the life of the artist. Fitzpatrick poses serious questions about art’s reoccurring motives, and the implications of an unspoken creative osmosis that challenges traditional notions of originality. FEEDBACK subverts expectations at every turn, while investigating the lifespan of artists collaborations, and suggesting that even the most short-lived collective create it’s own afterlife.

You can see work by Leo Gabin, Mark Flood, and Blair Thurman in FEEDBACK at Marlborough Contemporary, New York, until August 4, 2017

“What of those profound and puzzling interventions where an outside force permanently alters the way a work is seen, leaving the original artist faced with the choice of either accepting this intrusion on their authority, or denouncing it?” – quote from the press release of FEEDBACK at Marlborough Contemporary.

THE SECOND SELF

This summer’s group show explores the wide ranging implications of an ever growing digital world. The fine tuned precision of computer aided technology lends us the power to create with uncanny accuracy. The future promises a world with no margin for error, an environment that verges on perfection.

“The Second Self” addresses a paradox at the heart of the digital age, probing to discover what can be left when we do away with human error. Works from Ad Minoliti, Austin Lee, Beth Letain, Ce Jian, and Donna Huanca address this topic in unique ways, creating a group show with a powerful diversity that stands as testament to humankind’s enduring individuality…

Peres Projects is pleased to present The Second Self, a group exhibition featuring a series of works by Donna HUANCA, Ce JIAN, Austin LEE, Beth LETAIN, and Ad MINOLITI exploring the similarity and slippage between the human and digital mind.

“The Second Self” takes its title from Sherry Turkle’s 1984 book which looks at the role of computers in our social and psychological lives. Computer technology has served as a great catalyst for society, impacting our awareness of ourselves, of each other and our relationship to the world. We endeavour to humanise technology, to create it in our own image, and a fresh aspect of this challenge is to create room for human error and emotion within technology. The works by the artists in this exhibition explore the notion of replicating individuality, with all of its flaws, in technology and provide different perspectives on the psychology of computation, allowing us to view our relationship with technology with fresh eyes.

Donna HUANCA (b.1980, US) studied at Städelschule, Frankfurt and was the recipient of the DAAD Artist Frankfurt and a Fulbright research grant. Recent exhibitions include the Zabludowicz Collection, London, Peres Projects, Berlin. In 2017, Huanca takes part in the group exhibition Jaguars and Electric Eels at the Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin and currently has a solo exhibition at Travesia Cuatro, Madrid.

Ce JIAN (b.1984, CN) graduated from the Berlin University of the Arts in the master class of Georg Baselitz, Daniel Richter and Robert Lucander in 2008. She studied at Goldsmiths College, London and was a PhD candidate in Art and Visual History at the Humboldt-Universität, Berlin. Currently working and living in Berlin and Beijing, recent exhibitions include The Grand Illusion, White Space, Beijing (2016); I’m not a robot, Galerie Philine Cremer, Düsseldorf (2016); Our Painting, Yang Art Museum, Beijing, China (2016).

Austin LEE (b.1983, US) lives and works in New York. He received an MFA in Painting from Yale School of Art and a BFA from Tyler School of Art. His most recent solo exhibitions include shows at Postmasters Gallery in New York, Carl Kostyal in London and Stockholm, Kaleidoscope in Milan, New Gallery in Paris and BANK in Shanghai.

Beth LETAIN (b. 1976, CA) studied at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and SUNY Purchase College, graduating with an MFA in 2008. She has exhibited recently in Montreal, Brooklyn, and Boston. She currently lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Ad MINOLITI (b. 1980, AR) obtained a BFA from the National Academy of Fine Arts Pueyrredon, Argentina in 2003. Recent solo and duo exhibitions include Disjecta Art Center, Portland; Agustina Ferreyra, Puerto Rico; Recoleta Art Center, Buenos Aires; Nuevo Museo Energía de Arte Contemporáneo, Buenos Aires; Galerie Crèvecoeur, Paris, and Eden Assanti, London. Minoliti has recently taken part in numerous group exhibitions including Aichi Triennale, Nagoya; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Montreal;  Bienal do Mercosul, Porto Alegre; and FRAC Des Pays De La Loire, Nantes.

Donna Huanca in group exhibition ‘Dialogues’

Peres Projects is please to share that Donna HUANCA will exhibit works alongside nine other Berlin based artists from Germany and the US in a new group exhibition, curated by Dr. Jeni Fulton and Dr. Barbara Jenner. The exhibition, titled Dialogues, is a collaborative project between Sleek and Verband der AutomobilindustrieDialogues aims to bring together different artistic positions while initiating an examination of the frameworks, structures and reoccurring concepts present in the exhibition. The curators intend this dialogue to form the basis of a conversation “between material and medium, between art and the economy”.

Donna HUANCA studied at Städelschule, Frankfurt and was the recipient of the DAAD Artist Frankfurt and a Fulbright research grant. For Huanca, the body and skin are an ongoing focus and she employs them as both pure surface and material. The performers’ presence both activates her studio works and relate to dissimulation, fusion, and camouflage, furnishing the beginnings of a poetic narrative on the fragmentation of identity. Recent exhibitions include the Zabludowicz Collection, London, Peres Projects, Berlin. In 2017, Huanca takes part in the group exhibition Jaguars and Electric Eels at the Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin and has had a solo exhibition at Travesia Cuatro, Madrid.

Dialogues opens May 19, and runs through June 16, 2017 at VDA, Behrenstr. 35, 10117 Berlin.

Brent WADDEN (b.1979, Nova Scotia, CA, lives and works in Berlin and Vancouver), has worked from Berlin since 2005. His paintings and weavings range from colourful displays of symmetry to subtle monochrome motifs of repeating forms. There’s the visual rhythm of a machine, but the disruptive trace of the handmade.  Recent shows include Peres Projects, Berlin, Almine Rech Gallery, Brussels Mitchell-Innes and Nash, New York and PACE London. Wadden is currently exhibited at the Rubell Family Collection and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Peres Projects at Frieze New York

Peres Projects is pleased to announce our participation at Frieze New York 2017, where we will present new works by Brent Wadden, Blair Thurman, Dean Sameshima, Donna Huanca, Mark Flood, and Melike Kara.

Frieze has been a prominent art fair since its inception in the early 2000s, and has regularly welcomed Peres Projects as an exhibitor. Frieze art fair is staged by Amanda Sharp and Matthew Slotover, the publishers of Frieze Magazine.

In the past six years Frieze has expanded from its birthplace in London, where we will present later this year, and has jumped across the pond, to set up shop on Randall Island, New York.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Blair THURMAN’s (b.1961, US) practice connects diverse cultural and symbolic facets of Americana with Pop Art and abstract geometric art of the 50s and 60s. Drawing on influences such as his passionate collecting of model cars and other personal imagery, Thurman’s shaped canvases exist on the periphery of both painting and sculpture simultaneously. Recent solo exhibitions include Peres Projects, Berlin, Gagosian Gallery, New York and Geneva, The Centre National d’Art Contemporain, Grenoble as well as the Oklahoma City Museum of Art.

Brent WADDEN (b.1979, Nova Scotia, CA, lives and works in Berlin and Vancouver), has worked from Berlin since 2005. His paintings and weavings range from colourful displays of symmetry to subtle monochrome motifs of repeating forms. There’s the visual rhythm of a machine, but the disruptive trace of the handmade. Recent shows include Peres Projects, Berlin, Almine Rech Gallery, Brussels Mitchell-Innes and Nash, New York and PACE London. Wadden is currently exhibited at the Rubell Family Collection and the Vancouver Art Gallery.

Donna HUANCA studied at Städelschule, Frankfurt and was the recipient of the DAAD Artist Frankfurt and a Fulbright research grant. For Huanca, the body and skin are an ongoing focus and she employs them as both pure surface and material. The performers’ presence both activates her studio works and relate to dissimulation, fusion, and camouflage, furnishing the beginnings of a poetic narrative on the fragmentation of identity. Recent exhibitions include the Zabludowicz Collection, London, Peres Projects, Berlin. In 2017, Huanca takes part in the group exhibition Jaguars and Electric Eels at the Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin and has had a solo exhibition at Travesia Cuatro, Madrid.

Dean SAMESHIMA’s (b. 1971, Torrance, California, US) subject matter deals in the currency of nostalgia, vindication and accumulation, yet his works speak the language of seriality and the subversion of power structures. Sameshima starts with the object, with the capacity of obsession it embodies and its imperative to be possessed. His works represent an existential reflection on the evolution of gay sexuality in the social sphere. Recent exhibitions include the Tacoma Art Museum, New York; Jacob Lewis Gallery, New York; and Peres Projects, Berlin.

Mark FLOOD has been mining the cult of celebrity since the early 1980s, physically and literally distorting publicity images in every imaginable way through collage, reprinting and over-painting celebrity portraits and advertising. In 2016, Flood had a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston. Recent museum exhibitions include the Staatliche Kunsthalle Baden-Baden, Contemporary Art Museum, St Louis, and a solo exhibition at the Rubell Family Collection.

Melike KARA’s work explores a highly unique and personal approach to figuration that’s informed by diverse interests ranging from 20th century German figurative traditions and a deep interest in social hierarchies, as well as both her familial history of migration and the realities of straddling two cultures. Tapping historically Ottoman mystical traditions and self-indulgent decadence, we often see her characters in dream like trances, unaware of each other, consumed by their own existence, their dreams and hopes. In 2016, Kara had a solo exhibition at Peres Projects, Berlin as well as a solo presentation in the feature sector at Art basel Miami Beach. Recent solo exhibitions include Open Forum, Berlin, and Salon Kennedy, Frankfurt a.M.

Melike Kara and Mark Flood at ‘MIDTOWN’, Lever House

Peres Projects is please to share that two of our represented artists will take part in MIDTOWN, a group show at the historic Lever House, organised jointly by Maccarone Gallery and Salon 94.

Mark FLOOD and Melike KARA offer thought provoking contributions to MIDTOWN. Works from Flood’s Lace Paintings series blend intricate painting and collage with handicraft, while Kara’s monumental paintings describe scenes of complex group interaction.

MIDTOWN delves into the areas in which art, design and commerce share common ground, while investigating the relationships between value, function, high brown and low brow culture. The venue is special, a restored mid century commercial building, constructed in the International Style of architecture, New York’s Lever House is a testament to the enduring legacy of Mies van der Rohe, and has been a designated landmark of New York city since the early 80’s. Lever House holds an impressive collection of early twenty first century art. 

The exhibition takes a special look at craft and the place of handmade artworks in the world, while treating all works on display as the foremost output of our creative culture.

Peres Projects at Independent Brussels

Peres Projects is pleased to announce our participation at Independent Brussels 2017, where we will present works by Austin Lee, Donna Huanca, as well as Classic African sculptures from Javier Peres’ private collection.

The theme of the Peres Project booth at Independent Brussels this year is one that resonates strongly with our owner and director, Javier Peres. Our presentation places the focus on the meaningful juxtaposition of contemporary artworks with Classic African art. This idea is well established with a longstanding history, with roots winding back well into the early twentieth century to the dawn of Modernism.

Peres Projects offers a presentation that draws intellectual links to our recent group exhibitions, Wild Style (2016) and Group Spirit (2014). The decision to display these works of art side by side is intended to parallel the early Modernist exhibitions with a similar experimental composition.

You can buy our publication detailing these group exhibitions here.

Austin LEE merges abstraction and figuration, humour and pathos, in his expressive paintings and sculptures. Working from small- to large-scale, he covers every inch of his canvases with colour, utilizing acrylic and vinyl paint. The latter is known for its matte finish and brilliant hues, which make elements of Lee’s compositions appear to pop and glow.

Donna HUANCA studied at Städelschule, Frankfurt and was the recipient of the DAAD Artist Frankfurt and a Fulbright research grant. For Huanca, the body and skin are an ongoing focus and she employs them as both pure surface and material. The performers’ presence both activates her studio works and relate to dissimulation, fusion, and camouflage, furnishing the beginnings of a poetic narrative on the fragmentation of identity. Recent exhibitions include the Zabludowicz Collection, London, Peres Projects, Berlin. In 2017, Huanca takes part in the group exhibition Jaguars and Electric Eels at the Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin and will have a solo exhibition at Travesia Cuatro, Madrid.

The Reliquary Guardian Figure has a marvellous velvety dark patina, almost resembling a lacquer, and is an outstanding examples of Classical African sculpture. Particular attention must be paid to the figure’s expertly curved head, complete with haircrests, which has been hollowed out in the shape of a heart.

The Helmet Horned Mask is thought to be just one of just three existent examples of this style of mask. The ‘lyre’ composition of the mask’s horns, curving gently upward and inward marks this sculpture as quite unique among the corpus. It’s proportions and sculptural qualities are an indication towards the mastery of the mask’s maker.

Donna Huanca in ‘Jaguars and Electric Eels’ at the Julia Stoschek Collection, Berlin

Opening February 5, 2017

On view until November 26, 2017

The largely media-based works in the collection of the same name on show at the JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION in Berlin describe a reality that no longer distinguishes between naturalness and artificiality but sees things as a whole and as equals. As the various artists’ contributions to the exhibition illustrate, our modern life science questions both the line between naturalness and artificiality and the ontology of objects of all kinds.

Dorothy Iannone: ‘Lineage of Love’ at KIOSK, Belgium

KIOSK presents Lineage of Love, the first Belgian solo exhibition by Dorothy Iannone (°1933, Boston, USA). A self-taught artist focusing on issues of emancipation, sexuality, politics and spiritual awakening, Iannone has been developing a singular body of work for over half a century. From 1967 she lived with Swiss-German artist Dieter Roth for a number of years, starting a thorough intertwining of her personal (and amorous) life with her artistic work. This emphatic autobiographical and narrative aspect of her work is expressed in paintings, drawings, graphic novels, sculptures, artist’s books, text-based works, collages and photographic works.

Peres Projects is pleased to announce the exhibition Paintingat Espacio 1414. The focus of this exhibition is painting, and how it has evolved in the 21st century. Artists are using technology to transform the act of painting into what we like to think of as Painting2.  Some artists are using printing or film as their method of painting while others are using new venues such as the internet and social media as material for their paintings, for imagery and/or conceptually. Meanwhile there are artists who are focused on pushing the limits of what can be created through traditional painting. In Painting2, we display a group of works that bring into question: what is painting? For more information, please visit the Espacio 1414 website here.

Alex Israel at Astrup Fearnley Museum

alexisrael_logo3_0_0049d49d275275

Alex Israel – #AlexIsrael
June 10 – September 11, 2016
Astrup Fearnley Museum
Oslo, NO

In recent years the American contemporary artist Alex Israel (b. 1982, Los Angeles, USA) has attracted considerable attention in the international art scene, both for his paintings and sculptures and, not least, for his infamous interview show As It Lays.

In many ways Israel’s art can be understood as emerging from his Los Angeles-based life, and it is often referred to as a portrait of LA. This Californian city, with its vibrant film and pop culture, serves as source material, subject matter and muse for his art, in which he appropriates, transforms and comments on elements of the city’s aesthetic and spirit.

Israel draws inspiration from the American media and film industry, and creates paintings, sculptures and installations that also include elements from talk shows and performance art. In his iconic interview show As It Lays the artist, always wearing his trademark sunglasses, interviews B-listed or passé Hollywood celebrities, from Melanie Griffith to Paul Anka. In a profoundly monotonous manner he asks them questions ranging from the banal to the existential, generating situations that are both ambiguous and revealing, alternating between authenticity and parody. As a contemporary successor of pop art and Andy Warhol’s all-encompassing and revolutionary interpretation of the concept of art, Israel has a studio at Warner Brothers, where he takes advantage of the grandiose production potential of the film industry to create his works, from paintings and sculptures to his talk show and commercial sunglass collections. As a spillover effect between commercial products and artworks, his activities in the sunglass industry are also transformed into sculptural works that appear as hybrids of eyeglass lenses and the aesthetic and surface fetishism of Californian West-Coast minimalism.

Israel’s painterly production includes both his characteristic self-portraits and series of paintings based on stage panels and backdrops from the film industry, as in the Flats and Skyline Backdrop paintings. Self-portraits in fibreglass are cut in the shape of the artist’s recognisable, sunglass-clad profile, and are repeated in endless colour variations like a logo – as a parallel to the artist’s obsessive focus on branding and the persona, which is also reflected in the contemporary construction of identity in the profile pictures of social media. TheSkyline Backdrop paintings consist of attractive colour-graded surfaces that imitate pastel-hued Californian sunsets. The result is an aesthetic that hovers at the borderline between neo-abstraction and a theatrical representation of reality. Like the city of their origin, they are experienced as an interface of attractive surfaces and underlying hollowness and simulation. In their circling around such themes as the film industry, celebrity culture and the American dream, their mechanisms are both embraced and, at the same time, exposed in all their ambiguity.

Mark Flood: Gratest Hits at the Contemporary Arts Museum of Houston

MF_EATHUMANFLESH89_46x58_L

MARK FLOOD: GRATEST HITS

On View: April 23 – July 17, 2016

Opening Reception: Friday, April 22, 2016 | 6:30-9PM

Gratest Hits is a survey of 30 years of Flood’s work from the 1980s to 2015.  Never has an exhibition enjoyed so many moments of extreme visual beauty, cheek my jowl with crude humor and aggressive, roughly rendered texts to create a visual roller coaster ride.  For most of his artistic career, Flood has created collages, paintings and sculptures, and altered found ephemera that serve to critique and highlight consumer culture and the perversity of the art world.Gratest Hits presents the deep wisdom and humor of three decades of work while ultimately revealing the true achievement of an artist who has produced many highly praised works and had an active career despite remaining barely visible at the museum level. For more information, please visit to CAMH website here.

Mike Bouchet in Group Show <em>Prototypology</em> at Gagosian Gallery, Rome

c7213c5e3ecf1c57ba910ec183157ead

Opening January 14, 2016, Prototypology explores research and development in the work of thirty contemporary artists, tracing the evolution from idea to finished artwork through drawings, archives, maquettes, and bricolage. In doing so the exhibition establishes a typology of diverse drafts.

The studio is a liminal zone for sourcing, modifying, and testing. Derived from the Italian word schizzare (splash), a “sketch” represents the initial impulse from mind to hand, the developmental process whereby form begins to emerge. In the laboratory of the studio, bricolage is often used as an instinctual method in the construction of prototypes.

Artists: Vladimir Arkhipov, Richard Artschwager, Nina Beier, Will Boone, Mike Bouchet, Chris Burden, Jason Dodge, Aleksandra Domanović, Dan Graham, Loris Gréaud, Michael Heizer, Carsten Höller, Thomas Houseago, Allan McCollum, Takashi Murakami, Albert Oehlen, Claes Oldenburg, Steven Parrino, Giuseppe Penone, Kirsten Pieroth, Ry Rocklen, Nancy Rubins, Arcangelo Sassolino, David Smith, Rudolf Stingel, Robert Therrien, Mungo Thomson, Tatiana Trouvé, Cy Twombly, Rachel Whiteread

Sightings: Alex Israel at the Nasher Sculpture Center

12029647_1172508819444038_1413088375379938699_o

Peres Projects is pleased to announce Sightings, a solo show by Alex Israel at the Nasher Sculpture Center.

The work of Alex Israel deals in the images and cultural eccentricities of his native Los Angeles. From his sunglasses company Freeway Eyewear to his YouTube talk show called As It Lays, wherein he interviews famous and not-so-famous Hollywood personalities, Israel is always plumbing the surface of the iconic pop culture of L.A. to better understand its global influence.

For his Sightings exhibition at the Nasher, Israel will combine new sculptural objects made in the vernacular vocabulary of Hollywood movies to make a quasi-narrative installation related to a film that Israel is soon to release.

Mark Flood in Theories of Forgetting at Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles

Screen Shot 2015-07-28 at 17.59.41 copy

“Theories on Forgetting” maps evolutions of cultural symbolism through the work of 18 contemporary artists. Questioning how popular images originate, gain importance, obsolesce, and renew, the exhibition surveys a broad range of artworks with source amnesia: strange relics and personal figments reveal the emergence of new languages fertilized by previous ones. These diverse cultural apparitions engage individual and collective memory as subject, action, and material.

Artists: Mark Flood, Piero Golia, Douglas Gordon, Mark Hagen, John Houck, Christian Jankowski, Oliver Laric, Ana Mendieta, Cady Noland, Richard Phillips, Sterling Ruby, Thomas Ruff, Ed Ruscha, Analia Saban, Max Hooper Schneider, Taryn Simon, Mungo Thomson, Jonas Wood

MARK FLOOD – ANOTHER PAINTING

CAMSL

Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis
September 5, 2014 – January 3, 2015

The first solo museum exhibition of Houston-based artist Mark Flood, Another Painting features key examples of the artist’s recent text, lace, and corporate logo paintings. With a deadpan and confrontational tone, Flood’s work interrogates the verbal, visual, and written language of institutions—such as government, Wall Street, and the art market—that influence everyday life. Appropriating the vernacular of these establishments, Flood seeks to reveal what he believes to be their inherent absurdity and desire to control.

For more information, please visit the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis website.

BRENT WADDEN: THE DECLINE AT ALMINE RECH GALLERY

41_brentwaddenthedeclinealminerech2014

The Decline

April 23 – May 25, 2014

Almine Rech Gallery, Brussels, BE

Brent Wadden takes “The Decline of Western Civilization” as inspiration for “The Decline,” his first exhibition in Brussels’s Almine Rech Gallery. The Canadian-born and Berlin-based artist’s new paintings from his ongoing “Alignment” series embody the counterculture rejectionist spirit documented by Penelope Spheeris for her 1981 chronicle of Los Angeles’s punk scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s.  Spheeris, however, recorded a subculture dedicated to destruction.  By contrast, Wadden’s resistance takes shape through renewal, revision and attention to sustainability.
