ARTPIL Profiles of the Arts
Known Unknowns
Through Jun 24, 2018 / Saatchi Gallery

Theo Ellison

Saatchi Gallery is pleased to present Known Unknowns, a major new exhibition featuring the work of 17 contemporary artists.

Known Unknowns showcases an international selection of artists, born between 1966 and 1990, from the Saatchi Gallery’s collection. The title refers to the artists’ status in the mainstream art world – while the group is largely unknown, their respective practices are greatly admired by their artistic peers and seen as breaking new ground. The exhibition features a diverse range of art forms including painting, sculpture, video and mixed media, with a particular focus on the craft of art-making.

 

Stuart Middleton

Ben Schumacher

Saskia Olde Wolbers

Rannva Kunoy

Kirstine Roepstorff

The works deal with a myriad of themes that relate to the visual conditions of contemporary life, such as the exponential flow of images, the representation of the body in the Internet age, and the ethics of viewing versus voyeurism.

 

Alida Cervantes

Francesca Dimattio

Stefanie Heinze

These artists are not afraid to explore new media in thought-provoking ways, and each pursues a highly individualized practice. They are a seemingly disparate group, yet together reflect the diversity and breadth of contemporary art in a globalized and increasingly digital age.

While Known Unknowns does not offer an obvious unifying theme or ideological point of view, it presents its audience with a group of artists that are worthy of wider exposure.
