Some animals’ bodies are so vulnerable to their surroundings that they need to be encased in hard shells to survive.
Dimora Artica presents Sea-Monkeys Cult by Tania Fiaccadori, a personal exhibition that reflects on the concept of survival (Nachleben) in relation to the symbolic power of objects and images and their eternal return through history. The works, inspired by the magical instruments of the ancient Italian traditions, reproduce a ritual expressive form seen through a contemporary filter, as if they were part of an alien cult.
In her third exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ, Marvin Gaye Chetwynd will present a series of ten new paintings wall-mounted structures which explode the distinctions between painting, performance, film and sculpture. The works mark a dramatic expansion of Chetwynd’s painting practice, substituting the miniature scale of her long-running Bat Opera series for a newly expansive and multifarious format.
Gianni Manhattan is pleased to present Procrustean Flatulence, Sebastian Jefford's first solo show with the gallery. Accompanying the exhibition is the second publication released by Gianni Manhattan Publishing, Sebastian Jefford's short story - In the City. This publication is dedicated to the memory of Mary Maclean.
This exhibition checks in on subjectivity in the postmodern era: challenged to remodel itself, its material existence as much as its ideas, it confronts powers both old and new that put their stamps upon it. It encounters the construction of political bodies and representations that have lately taken on something like the feudalist and anti-democratic cast of yore. Where power seeks to maintain continuity, it incorporates a human community’s collective body into a symbolically exalted subject: Long Live the King!
