Jung Uk Yang: A Man Without Words

DOOSAN Gallery

Opening 2 July – 27 August 2015

Jung Uk Yang’s solo exhibition deals with the narratives of the people he encounters, probing the human sentiments that are revealed through storytelling. The title of the piece references the monotonous and mundane lives lived by unspoken people. Some works are in direct reflection of particular people he meets, such as the apartment security guards in South Korea who must fight to stay awake while everyone else is asleep in his work titled ‘A Fatigue Always Comes with a Dream’ (2013). Yang works with installation art, light art and kinetic art.

Conrad Shawcross: Manifold, in the Park and Gallery

New Art Centre

Opening 23 May – 26 July 2015

This is Conrad Shawcross’ first exhibition at the New Art Centre. His practice is embedded with scientific rationality and often takes redundant theories and diverse materials to create modular and sometimes mechanical structures that are ambitious and theoretically open to infinite extension. A series of sculptures on display are based on the fourth platonic solid, the dodecahedron. In this work he experiments with the solidity of planes and lines with varying configurations. His fascination with the Big Bang theory has inspired him in his ‘Plosion Series’. In this, he attempts to visualise what such an event would be like through sculptural form.

Sui Jianguo: Touchable

Pace Gallery

Opening 9 July – 22 August 2015

An exhibition of new works by Sui Jianguo at Pace Gallery’s Beijing branch. This is the artist’s first solo show in China since his Pace Beijing exhibition in 2012. Considered a leading figure in Chinese contemporary sculpture and hailed as ‘China’s first and most far-reaching conceptual sculptor’, Jianguo seamlessly integrates concept and form to explore ideas on creation, medium, form, technique and the human experience. His running area of research is on the nature of “things” and how they reflect our relationship between the self and our environment.

I Spy with My Little Eye

The Mosaic Rooms

Opening 11 July – 22 August 2015

A new group exhibition curated by Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, I Spy with My Little Eye explores a shift in artistic practice and concerns through the works of a fiercely new and independent generation of artists connected to Beirut. All the artists on show were born after the Civil War in 1975, not having experienced the time of peace prior to the war. What sets this group of artists out is their new set of semantic practices that is removed from the preceding generation’s focus on archives and documentation. The exhibition is broad in disciplines imbued with a sense of transience and fragility, including works in video, sculpture, photography and installation.
