MATERIAL MEXICO CITY 2018

SHERMAN SAM

VIP PREVIEW, THURSDAY, 8 FEBRUARY, 12-3 PM

8  FEBRUARY – 11 FEBRUARY 2018

Annka Kultys GalleryAnnka Kultys Gallery is pleased to participate in MATERIAL Art Fair in Mexico City for the first year.  The gallery will feature Together We’re Heavy a presentation of recently completed paintings by Sherman Sam.

For the past two decades, Sam has become known for abstract oil paintings and drawings that avoid facile explanations or recognisable visual associations. Instead, Sam uses colour, surface, light and intuition to create a textured abstract visual reality, “free from ideology”. There is no specificity, no place, no person. The work opposes typically Western notions of narrative structure altogether. At the same time, Sam takes his titles from song lyrics — Just a perfect day, Disco Heaven, Only move to the beat — however, this is just a testament to the artist’s playful nature. The titles trick the viewer into searching for a correlation between lyric and painting that does not exist, but this unreturned quest, when abandoned, leaves room for meditation. The work exists solely on its strength as art, allowing for a more liberated experience.

Born in Singapore in 1966, Sherman Sam has studied at Parson-in-Paris, Paris, and the Otis Art Institute of the Parsons School of Design, Los Angeles. He earned his BFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 1991 and a Master of Letters in History of Art from the University of Oxford in 1997. His work was featured at Annka Kultys Gallery’s 2015 group show Desire of the Other, along with Theaster Gates, Oscar Murillo and Danh Vo. In 2016, his first solo show, Together We’re Heavy, was Annka Kultys Gallery’s second exhibition with the artist.

Sam’s work has been exhibited internationally, with solo shows at: Ceysson & Bénétière Gallery, Luxembourg; Annka Kultys Gallery, London; Some Walls, Oakland; Rubicon Gallery, Dublin; The Suburban, Chicago; Centro de Arte S Joao da Madeira, S Joao da Madeira, Portugal; and the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford. He has also participated in several group exhibitions at: Annka Kultys Gallery, London; Feature, Inc., New York; Janet Kurnatowski Gallery, Brooklyn; The Drawing Room, London; Sue Scott Gallery, New York; Kunsthalle Centro Cultural Andratx, Majorca; and Model Arts and Niland Gallery, Sligo, Ireland.

SIGNE PIERCE

LIVE PERFORMANCE – REGENT’S PARK, LONDON

WEDNESDAY, 4 OCTOBER, 3-6 PM

Annka Kultys Gallery

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.

Pierce performances include BOOKLUB #10: Make America Great Again, Museum of Modern Art, MoMA, New York, US; Simulational Aesthetics, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, FR, NYNYHPHP, Rhizome Gala, New Museum, New York, US.

CODE ART FAIR 2017

31  AUGUST – 2 SEPTEMBER 2017

VIP PREVIEW

THURSDAY, 31 AUGUST, 11 AM-4 PM

Annka Kultys Gallery

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, NY; Annka 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.
