Furthering Gray’s decade of working with marble, this series pushes the possibilities of the artist’s sculptural practice into novel territories of physical and psychological expression.

Pace Gallery is delighted to present an exhibition of new work by Kevin Francis Gray at 6 Burlington Gardens.

At the core of Kevin Francis Gray’s practice is an interrogation of the intersection of traditional sculptural techniques and contemporary life. Rather than working towards classical ideals of beauty, Gray relies on textural surfaces as opposed to facial or bodily expressions to imbue his sculptures with psychological realism. Furthering Gray’s decade of working with marble, this new work pushes the possibilities of the artist’s sculptural practice into new territories of physical and psychological expression. These works are intimately linked to a period of intense self-reflection in the artist’s life, which imbues them with a sense of both serenity and fragility.

    Muzeum Susch
    Susch, Switzerland

    Anu Põder (1947-2013) is one of Estonia’s most revelatory voices of the last five decades. Her work has stood out since the 1970s as uniquely crafted, originally conceived, and deeply personal. Yet, because it was somehow out of sync with the then established art landscape in Estonia, it has been overlooked for many years. Põder is known for exploring the human body, highlighting the fragility, impermanence, and ephemerality of life (more…)

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG
    Publication
    MACK

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
