David Maljkovic
Sprüth Magers London
Opening 10 April – 9 May 2015
 
Maljkovic’s work investigates the disintegration of memory and the extortion of information in relation to it’s effects from time and technology. The exhibition consists of a series of inkjet photo collages, a slide projection and a new edition of his HD video ‘Out of Projection (2009 – 2014)’. His use of collage is instrumental to his study of memory through methods such as joining photographs, films and projected images.

Anselm Kiefer: Im Gewitter Der Rosen (In the Storm of Roses)
Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac
Opening 28 March – 16 May 2015
 
A major exhibition hosting new works by Anselm Kiefer. Displaying a series of canvases characteristically heavy with paint, collages and including sculptures and watercolours, Kiefer explores the thematic dialectic of war and peace, love and pain, beauty and destruction. Among the study of these dualities are Keifer’s recent interest in the function of the iconographies of a variety of myths, that if the Christian, cabalistic and Germanic. These subjects are drawn from literary sources, among them is Ingeborg Bachmann’s (1926 – 73) poem ‘In the Storm of Roses (1953)’ from which Keifer coined the title of this exhibition.

Zheng Guogo: Visionary Transformation
Veneklasen/Werner
Opening 21 March – 25 April 2015
 
An exhibition of new works by Zheng Guogo. This is his first solo show in Berlin and features paintings, photographs, sculptures and his 20 minute film ‘Mind Acts Without Attachments’. Guogo is recognised as one of China’s most versatile contemporary artists heavily driven by his thematic approach. Tied together by a narrative line, the exhibition features works from a variety of series some which attempt to express the mental space of artists like Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Beuys as well as paintings inspired by Buddhist Thangka paintings. The structural effect and the psychological affects of mass commercial media are explored as with the conflation between fiction and reality.

Edinburgh-based Jessica Ramm is exhibiting a selection of her films, sculptures and performances which study the connections between humans, the environment and technology.
