Annka Kultys Gallery

FRIEZE LONDON  2017

SIGNE PIERCE

LIVE PERFORMANCE – REGENT’S PARK, LONDON

WEDNESDAY, 4 OCTOBER, 3-6 PM


Live performance by Signe Pierce:  Wednesday, 4 October, 3-6 PM

Annka Kultys Gallery is pleased to announce its debut at the 2017 edition of Frieze London.  The gallery will present the unofficial performance Living Booth by the New York-based artist Signe Pierce.  The intervention promotes the power of art as lived experience, transcending the confines of traditional gallery spaces such as the now ubiquitous art fair booth.  Pierce, who describes herself as “a reality artist” will circulate among corridors and communal areas of Frieze, like any other visitor to the fair, but for being accessorised with a handbag specifically designed for the performance which will feature a selection of video works by the artist on a display screen embedded in the fabric of the handbag.  For the duration of the performance, Pierce becomes a ‘living booth’ at Frieze.

Signe Pierce was born in Arizona in 1988 and currently lives and works in New York. She received her BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in 2011. Pierce arrived upon the art world’s periphery in 2015 when her performance in the short film, American Reflexxx (dir. Alli Coates), was uploaded to YouTube; reaching over two million views within the first week of its online release. Annka Kultys Gallery will host the artist’s second solo presentation in London in Spring 2018.

Previous solo shows include Faux Realities, Annka Kultys Gallery London, UK; Virtual Normalities, Galerie Nathalie Halgnad, Vienna, AT. She has participated in several group shows internationally, including ] [, Annka Kultys Gallery, London, UK; Secret Garden, The Untitled Space, New York, US; Zero Zero, Annka Kultys Gallery, London, UK; American Reflexxx, Nathalie Halgand, Vienna, AT.

CODE ART FAIR 2017

31  AUGUST – 2 SEPTEMBER 2017

VIP PREVIEW

THURSDAY, 31 AUGUST, 11 AM-4 PM


Press preview in presence of the artists:  Thursday, 31 August, 10-11 AM

Annka Kultys Gallery is pleased to participate in Code Art Fair for the first year.  An immersive installation relating to the theme of body and its intimacy within the virtual world will feature works by two Danish London-based artists Stine Deja and Marie Munk.

Stine Deja presents 4K ZEN  (courtesy Roskilde Festival), an immersive installation, a ‘stress diet’ that promises an escape from the complexity of modern life that combines the wisdom of meditation and infomercials. The experience requires the visitor to surrender themselves to the screen and its soothing imagery and passively enter a state more restful than sleep.

Stine Deja was born in Denmark in 1986 and currently lives and works in London. She received her MA in Visual Communication (Moving Image) from the Royal College of Art in 2015 and her BA in Interaction Design from Kolding School of Design in 2012.

A select exhibition history of the artist includes shows at Secret Project Robot, NYAnnka Kultys Gallery, London; Like a Little Disaster, Bari; Assembly Point, London; SixtyEight Art Institute, Copenhagen; Frieze, London; Concrete Lab, Copenhagen; Remisen, Copenhagen; Hockney Gallery, London; Fringe Film Festival, London; National Gallery of Denmark, Copenhagen; and No Man’s Art Gallery, Copenhagen.

For the CODE art fair, Marie Munk presents MAGIC WAND, a performance that hides a real body in a sculpture made of the background of Photoshop pattern, the grey and white checkerboard. While the body appears trapped in this sterilised digital scenario, the skin of the performer is simultaneously revealed through some opened sections.

Marie Munk was born in Denmark in 1988 and currently lives and works in London. She received her MA in Mixed Media from the Royal College of Art in 2016. Marie is working with artist Stine Deja on an exhibition called ‘Synthetic Seduction’, which will be shown in Denmark and at Annka Kultys Gallery in London in 2018.

Her work has been also shown at Found, Hockney Gallery, London; HAUT scene, Copenhagen, Denmark; Schwartz Gallery, London; Offprint London, Tate Modern, London, 2015.
