Trish Clark Gallery is pleased to be exhibiting at Auckland Art Fair 2018, New Zealand's re-vitalised niche regional art fair. Now representing 23 artists, senior and emerging, Trish Clark Gallery has also introduced a number of renowned international artists to the Australasian region, including Anthony McCall, Alfredo Jaar and Kimsooja. While Trish Clark Gallery is strongly engaged with photography and moving image, the presentation for Auckland Art Fair will counterpoint these aspects with other more viscerally experienced (by maker and audience) aspects of contemporary art under the rubric of ‘the haptic’.

The past century saw ‘the death of painting’ (initially proclaimed by Rodchenko and other Russian Constructivists in 1921) and yet its contemporary continuation seems assured; the ancient arts of working in glass and stone retain, in the right hands, a deeply contemporary edge; the immediacy of the artist’s hand revealed in drawing is both the most ancient of humankind’s artworks and a contemporary delight. Trish Clark’s booth will employ this range of media in varied scale, delivering unexpected conversations between artists. (Image: Eemyun Kang, Donna, 2016, acrylic and oil on canvas 900 x 900 mm)

Private view: Saturday 20 September, 2 - 4 pm

Timothy Taylor Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new paintings by Eemyun Kang for the gallery's Project Room. It is the artist's first exhibition with the gallery.

Ably translating organic forms into lush abstraction, Kang creates complex natural worlds marked by energetic and fluid brushstrokes. While she avoids the use of defined figurative elements to create her narratives, Kang's seductive colour-fields are often punctuated by quasi-anthropomorphised forms. The paintings presented here evolve from the artist's attempts to visualise music, and in particular, human voices. The titles reference language and speech and are often derived from poetry - in this instance from Anne Carson's Autobiography of Red and Jane Gregory's My Enemies.

For Kang, the idea of myth has been a tool that operates through the creative imagination. Myth as transitional tale, legend and folklore is utilised as a starting point for the creation of narrative events in imaginary time. The viewer is invited to drift between the paintings' stories where tone, gesture and technique are revisited and redeployed culminating in an immersive and ever-shifting experience.

Alternating between abstract and figurative registers, she creates imagined hybrid worlds or mystic landscapes. The paint and canvas constitute transformative elements that mediate between subject and object, sub-consciousness and consciousness, abstraction and figuration.

Eemyun Kang (b.1981 in Busan, Korea) lives and works in London. She obtained a BA degree from Slade School of Fine Art (2006), completed her Postgraduate Studies in Fine Art at The Royal Academy Schools in London (2009) and received a Professional Doctorate in Fine Art (DFA) at the University of East London (2012).

Selected solo exhibitions include Fungalland and the Stranded Mother Whale at the Trondheim Kunst Museum, Norway (2012), Eemyun Kang / Kyung Jeon, Kukje Gallery, Seoul (2012) and Dozing River, Tina Kim Gallery, New York (2010).

Kang has participated in group exhibitions at Trish Clark Gallery, Auckland (2014), Artsonje Center, Seoul (2012), Korean Cultural Centre, London (2011), Bridgette Mayer Gallery, Philadelphia (2011), Union Gallery, London (2010), Old Police Station, London (2009), and the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2009).

From 16 December 2011 to 21 January 2012 the exhibition MUSE LONDON brings a showcase of Contemporary Media Art to the KCC.

The exhibition dwells more specifically on the artists' interior world as seen through the lens of a foreign world city. The artworks give highly personal reports of the 'London experience' told through interviews, documentary snippets, exotic fantasy, paranoia and studied reflections.

The exhibition has been guest curated by Jeremy AKERMAN and managed Ji Hye HONG (KCC UK).

At St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel
Euston Road, London, NW1 2AR

A Victorian masterpiece restored
This year we are thrilled to be holding the Schools Annual Dinner & Auction at the newly renovated St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, London. It will be the first event held there since 1935. Sir John Betjeman described this Gothic treasure as being “too beautiful and too romantic to survive”. After years of devoted restoration, the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is being hailed as London’s most romantic building. Its glorious Gothic Revival metalwork, gold leaf ceilings, handstenciled wall designs and grand staircase are as dazzling as the day Queen Victoria opened the hotel in 1873. Designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott RA (Gilbert Scott achieved great eminence, becoming Professor of Architecture at the Royal Academy of Arts from 1866 to 1873) to receive travellers through St Pancras Station, the former Midland Grand Hotel offers its guests a world of grandeur, luxury and fantasy behind its fairytale red façade. To reserve a room at the hotel on the night of the Dinner and Auction, at a discounted rate, please call 0800 221 222 or key in the special rate code ‘K6Y’ when booking online www.stpancrasrenaissance.co.uk. Please note that rooms are subject to availability.

UNION is pleased to announce ‘The Mountain where Whales once Lived’ a group exhibition with artists Eemyun Kang, Alisa Margolis, Dolly Thompsett and Suling Wang. The title of this exhibition makes reference to petroglyths discovered in 1971- depictions of large whales etched into megalithic rocks found in a remote area of forest encircled by mountains near the East Sea. These ancient mythological or historical narratives, scenes of cetacean creatures and fishermen appearing and disappearing in and out of mountain faces perhaps say something about the enduring significance and timelessness of figurative mark making and painting. The paintings in UNION’s exhibition present a field of transmuting landscapes, preternatural colour, semi abstract and semi figurative forms – a suggestion of other times and other(worldly) places. Eemyun Kang, Alisa Margolis, Dolly Thompsett and Suling Wang have never shown together prior to this exhibition and will meet together for the first time for ‘The Mountain where Whales once Lived’ at UNION. Important to the exhibition’s concept is the idea that the artists should come together through a process of approbation and invitation. Dolly Thompsett has invited Suling Wang and Eemyun Kang has selected Alisa Margolis - each admirers of the other’s work.

Eemyun Kang (b.1981 Pusan, Korea) Lives and works in London. Kang studied Fine Art at The Slade School, London and The Royal Academy of Arts, London. She has recently had a solo exhibition at Tina Kim Gallery, New York 2010 and group exhibition at Vegas Gallery, London 2010 and Hangaram Art Museum, Seoul Arts Centre, Korea 2009. Personal narratives based on nature and mythology are a central theme in Kang’s painting. Her imaginary hybrid world of sensual and fluid mark-making in turn invites the viewer to form their own narrative – the incompleteness of her canvas charting nature's ongoing possibilities of change and transformation. Her current painting presented with UNION ‘The Mountain where Whales once Lived’ is based on the prehistoric site in southern part of Korea, Ulsan, where she spent her childhood.

Alisa Margolis (b. 1975 Kiev, Ukraine) Lives and works in Berlin. Margolis studied at Columbia University, NY and De Ateliers International Artists' Institute, Amsterdam. She has had recent solo exhibitions at Galerie Wilma Tolksdorf, Frankfurt, 2009 and Galerie Diana Stigter, Amsterdam 2008. Group exhibitions include Walker Evans and the Barn, Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam; Painting Codes, Galleria Comunale d'Arte Contemporanea di Monfalcone, Italy; The Triumph of Painting, Saatchi Gallery, London. Her work can be seen presently in the UCLA Wight Biennial in Los Angeles. In Margolis work, spontaneous mark making and action painting like spills of paint are counter-posed with classical and baroque references to vanitas and 17th century flower painting, NASA space imagery, arena rock concert and cinematic special effects: a meditation on the contemporary experience of the sublime. The work You Are One of A Thousand (Forest Nude 3) is one of a series, a larger project that culminated in an installation of paintings in the forest of Baden Württemberg, the former pleasure gardens of one of the last absolute Monarchs of Europe. A publication documenting this work is forthcoming in 2011.

Dolly Thompsett (b.1969, London) Lives and works in London. Thompsett trained at Byam Shaw MA Fine Art, 2000 and Goldsmiths College PhD Fine Art, 2004. She has had recent solo shows at Ritter/Zamet 2009 and Fred 2007 and is currently showing at ArtSway, a public gallery in the New Forest. Group exhibitions include The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2009, Golden Record, Aspex (touring) 2009 and Salon Nouveau Engholm Englehorn, Vienna 2007. Dolly Thompsett’s paintings are built up layers of paint interspersed with glossy resin laminates allowing images to radiate through the sleek surfaces of her work. Dark voids and phosphorescent sweeps allude to both Hollywood special effects and traditional romantic painting. Thompsett uses photographs as a starting point for her paintings, often of events where ordinary people are overcome by extraordinary circumstances.

Suling Wang (b.1968, Taiwan) Lives and works in London. She studied painting at Central St. Martin's College of Art and Design and The Royal College of Art. Her work has been exhibited internationally including exhibitions at The National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 2007 and The National Gallery, London, 2006. She also has work in permanent collections including the MOCA, Los Angeles and The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York. She is represented by the Victoria Miro Gallery, London. Suling Wangs paintings are influenced by the changing natural landscape and accelerated urbanisation of her native Taiwan. Characteristic of her paintings are gestural marks, bold strokes of colour and curvilinear forms flowing in and out of the visual field. Disparate visual elements feature alongside imaginary mountains and submerged islands relaying reality in a continual state of flux or dissolution, fragmenting and then becoming whole.

KT&G 상상마당 갤러리 1 (2F), Korea Seoul

윤영규 (상상마당갤러리 큐레이터) 현대미술에서 작가는 개념미술이 도래한 이후 많은 정보의 수집과 분석을 통하여 개인이기도 하지만 시대의 현상과 증상의 통합적 대표자로 위치하였다. 이에 따라 전시 공간은 더욱 관념적 공간으로 변모하게 된다. 여기서 미술의 자료는 단순히 작가의 데이타만을 말하는 것이 아닌 시대적 배경, 사회적 환경, 역사, 일상 등이 조합된 통합의 메신저 역할을 하기도 한다.

이번 전시에서 우리는 “Bibliothèque: 접힘과 펼침의 도서관”을 통해 전시장이 갖는 자료의 생성과 소멸, 그 보존에 대한 물음을 던지며 전시뿐만이 아닌 예술에 대한 연구가 함께 마련되는 공간성을 제안한다. 이와 더불어 전시의 부제인 접힘과 펼침의 도서관은 정보의 열림과 닫힘의 반대적 성격이 아닌 정보의 상호 유연성을 말한다. 이는 선의 일부가 점이 아닌 것처럼, 접힘은 펼침의 반대가 아닌 또 다른 접힘에까지 접힘을 따라가는 무한성을 요청하기도 하는 것이다.

본 전시는 비블리오테크란 무엇인가?의 질문을 너머, 현 미술계가 당면한 자료로서의 기능과 이것이 전시공간에서 어떠한 역할을 하게 되는지에 대한 실험의 전시이다. 우리는 이 실험을 통해 ‘갤러리’라는 공간의 역할 가능성과 그 가능성의 시간을 탐구하여 볼 것이다. 작가의 작품이 선보여지는 전통적인 공간의 성격 이전의 것인, 예술 정보의 군집을 이루는 공간들이 어떻게 자료를 수집하고 보존하는지, 또한 어떠한 정보를 어떻게 남길 것인지에 대한 질문을 던지고 해답을 추적해 가는 과정적 전시가 된다.

Bibliothèque: A Library of Folding and Unfolding
Yoon Youngkyu (Sangsangmadang Gallery, Curator)

Since the introduction of Conceptual Art in contemporary art, through rigorous collection and analysis of vast amounts of information, an artist, as much as one is an individual, has come to the position oneself as a representative of the phenomena of the times. Following such conditions, an exhibition space has evolved into a conceptual space. Here, art material does not merely imply the artist’s information, but it also works as an integrated messenger covering the era, social environment, history, and the everyday lives of people.

In this exhibition, through Bibliothèque : A Library of Folding and Unfolding, we propose an extensity created not just by the exhibition, but also the research on art, exploring the investigation on the creation and withering of materials harbored by the exhibition space and the preservation of such. The subtitle of the exhibition, A Library of Folding and Unfolding, implies that folding and unfolding of information are not of contrary nature, but one of mutual flexibility. As folding and unfolding are not contrary concepts, this calls for an infinity where folding is followed by another folding, like the way one a part of a line is not a dot.

Going beyond the question of “What is Bibliothèque?,” this is an experimental exhibition looking into the true function of an exhibition space as an instrument in today’s art world. We will explore the various roles and possibilities and the time of possibility offered by the space of the gallery through this experiment. The exhibition serves as a procedure for throwing out questions and finding answers on the nature of the exhibition space beyond just a mere space to display artists’ works, on what such space collects and preserves this information, and on how some information to be preserved.

Appropriate Modernism
Curated by Ken Pratt

‘Appropriate Modernism’ is a thematic presentation. It offers something of a nod to the location of a hotel room revamped over the skeleton of a building dating from the dying days of a certain modernist vernacular, yet it is not ‘site specific’. The presentation concerns itself with a cohort of very different artists whose work directly references or appropriates modernist visual and operative languages, simultaneously engaging with the political modalities contained in notions or the residues of modernism (or, indeed, Modernism) and its readings.

In the work of some of the artists the feminist issues relating to Modernism are addressed; others engage with the poetics of its ideologies. And others still use its aesthetic structures as an opening for a discussion of the ethics of science. Some even continue its formal tradtions, albeit with a practice informed by much more recent developments since the advent of conceptual art.

The tendency to revisit Modernism in art works has gained increasing visibility in recent years, particularly for a certain generation of artists. ‘Appropriate Modernism’ aims to offer something of a counterbalance to cast of ‘usual suspects’, focusing its attention on artists whose practice has addressed the topic for years and/or artists whose work approaches the topic from less direct routes.

Curated by Bright Treasure Art Projects

Bright Treasure Art Projects (BTAP) is delighted to announce a group exhibition of 'young international artists'. Bringing them from London to one of the most promising art galleries in the centre of the famous 798 Dansanzi Art District in Beijing, China. This group exhibition is all about three artists' views and interpretation of the world they exist in. Their close observation of their surroundings and the passing of time is individually and uniquely interpreted on their canvases. Our existence and the fundamental workings of the universe that are intermediated through 'creation' and 'transformation' in their works. Eemyun Kang's main themes are rooted in Korean mythology. To Kang, mythological metaphors are not only a way to lead macro discourse on historical traditions and individuals but also a way of discovering the origins of humanity. In this body of recent works, she experiments with the possibility of transforming living creatures and landscapes derived from her previous mythological themes. For Gorka Mohamed, his paintings are deconstructions of messages hidden in the world around him. His works whimsically combine his self-awareness as a contemporary artist with many of the traditions of Spanish Old Masters. His distinctive visual interpretation of his journey through the world lead us to the greater understanding of the contemporary art world where real 'masters' no longer exist and other genres supercede their positions as 'art'. His own position in the politicized struggle of contemporary art is an underling theme which is not immediately obvious in his work, but is constantly revisited in different layers. Jill Mason's rotated landscapes at first sight are secrets waiting to be unlocked by the viewer. Her signature vertical landscape and cryptic titles suggest fresh views of emotionally translating the world. More works on the same theme will be presented at the British Art exhibition “New Speak” organized by the Saatchi collection at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. Mason's hope for her work is that it will remain as pure paintings in physical existence before imposed theories, references and academic jargon. Her titles are often used as means to evoke a particular emotional interpretation upon highly interpreted images. This breathtaking simplicity is a wonderful way to escape from the overly self-conscious contemporary art world today. In this show, discerning connoisseurs can enjoy the unique experience of understanding the way the artists perceive the world around them. 'Code of Being' or 'riddles' in these paintings reveal a secret of life that we have not yet seen.

Travellng Light
London/Venice Biennale 2009
Travelling Light is an exciting collaborative project between a dynamic trio of female East End director/curators, Sophie Wilson of Pharos Gallery, Chiara Williams and Debra Wilson of WW Gallery. Intending to stretch the imagination of their artists through imposing size and weight constraints, the brief demands that work arrives by post for the London exhibition before being transported to Venice for the Biennale. The dogma has encouraged lateral thinking and some interesting responses: artists used to working on a larger scale have had to challenge their usual practice and leave their comfort zone, often to surprising, silly and outright creative ends. ---------------- London dates: 15 May - 28 May 2009 Press: Thurs 14 May 6-9pm Private View: Fri 15 May 6-9pm Opening times: Sat-Sun 12-6pm or at other times by appointment only.

Eemyun Kang & Ben Pritchard
Cafe Gallery at Royal Academy of Art, 1st May-29th June
The Café Gallery is pleased to exhibit works by two painters from the Royal Academy Schools: Eemyun Kang and Ben Pritchard.

Eemyun Kang (Pusan, Korea) previously studied at Ewha University, Seoul, Korea and The Slade School of Fine Art, London. From the Imposing, large-scale to the intimate small-scale the beautiful oil paintings investigate the relationship between nature and mythology.  Gestural brushwork allows imagery to remain in flux between abstraction and figuration, in a dramatic state of perpetual becoming and metamorphosis.

Ben Pritchard (Detroit, USA) previously studied at School of the Art Institute, Chicago. Referring to the development of gestural abstraction in painting, Pritchard also acknowledges the impact of the everyday, visual cacophony that surrounds us.  His paintings vary from diminutive to monumental; these shifts in size reflect the ever-changing parameters of responses, ideas and intuitions that inform his poetic interest in colour, line and form.

They are both final year postgraduate students and will be exhibiting comprehensive solo presentations in the annual exhibition of students' work from 17 - 28 June 2009 in the Royal Academy Schools. Established in 1768 as an integral element of the Royal Academy, the Schools' environment is unique. This distinguished heritage provides a rich setting in which the students can develop their individual practices, with each tightly knit year group adding a new chapter to the Schools' history and the possibilities of contemporary art making.

The Royal Academy Schools final show profiles the high quality work of 18 exciting new artists that has been developed over the three-year period of their intensive studies. The spectrum of work this year ranges from luscious expressive painting, through graphic pop sculpture to darkly ominous photography. The show provides visitors with a rare opportunity to view exceptional work from an ambitious generation of international artists that rigorously questions what it means to be producing visual art in 2009.
