These consist of ‘hits’ and ‘misses’ made by heating a 400 year old iron meteorite until glowing hot and then using it to burn the map at six mythic locations in of the American South.

Missing:  Waco (Texas); Roswell (New Mexico) [SOLD OUT]; Truth or Consequences (New Mexico) [SOLD OUT]

COLOURED WORKS ON PAPER, a David Shrigley solo exhibition at Galleri Nicolai Wallner, Copenhagen until 15 March

A solo exhibition of new works by David Shrigley titled COLOURED WORKS ON PAPER is currently on show at Copenhagen’s Galleri Nicolai Wallner (installation shot shown here courtesy of the gallery). The press release describes the show as follows:

Each work holds a specific focus. Some confront the viewer directly, with messages like “Attend more events”, “Fight the nonsense” and “I am afraid to make mistakes and it hinders my progress”, while some go at step beyond and ask questions like “Is this ok?” with another work answering “It’s ok”. Others are more demonstrative, with eggs, doors, sky, windows, body parts, signs, mirrors, birds, clocks, floating shapes and rubbish all capture our imagination along with their written descriptions.

For more information on this exhibition click here.

David Shrigley’s edition with The Multiple Store is ‘Brass Tooth’, an edition of 80 sculptures made of solid brass.

With ‘Brass Tooth’ Shrigley plays on our fear of the dentist’s chair by hugely exaggerating the size of the common molar, but confounds us by making it in solid, heavy brass. For more information and to buy this edition (which is now nearly sold out) click here.

Extra Terrestrial: Tess Jaray and Alison Wilding at the East Gallery, Norwich (26/Jan-19/Mar)

Extra Terrestrial is a new exhibition presented by the East Gallery at Norwich University, in collaboration with Kartsten Schubert and features works by two prominent artists, Tess Jaray and Alison Wilding and runs from 26th January to 19th March.

The title of the exhibition, ‘Extra Terrestrial’, is not, according to the press release, ‘an homage to popular film culture, but speaks in relation to both artists work, of their uniquely conceptual occupations with landscape, perspective and ontological objecthood. The works of Jaray and Wilding occupy physical and reflective space and offer the viewer an intervening layer of realised ‘otherness’, above and beyond either the picture plane or the physiognomy of sculpture –Wilding’s ‘Terrestrial’ being the specific reference in point.’

Image: Liliane Lijn’s LOST KOAN at Jubilee Park, Canary Wharf, September 2015.

.

As part of the exhibition The Multiple Store @ Canary Wharf that takes place from 21st September to 13th November at the Lobby of One Canada Square, visitors will also be able to see large  sculptures at Jubilee Park (Monday to Sunday, daylight hours). More details, as well as installation images, below.

All inquiries: please contact The Multiple Store: info@themultiplestore.org or +44 (0) 7760 666518.

Grenville Davey: House 2008 Steel and oak

The circle or disc is a recurring motif in Grenville Davey’s sculpture. House, an industrially spun steel vessel inverted, rusted and polished to a mahogany sheen, has a wooden handle set centrally, angled parallel to the dome.

Kenny Hunter: Black Swan 2013 Resin

Black Swan typifies Kenny Hunter’s use of anthropomorphic symbolism, the swan evoking human qualities of enduring partnership and love, while also alluding to ‘Black Swan theory’, a term used to describe inexplicable or unexpected events rationalised with hindsight, deriving from the fact that black swans were thought to be an impossibility. The piece exemplifies Hunter’s practice of transmuting historical ideas through sculpture.

Liliane Lijn: Lost Koan 2007 Glass-reinforced polyester, Perspex, fluorescent lights

A relatively recent version in Liliane Lijn’s series focusing on the shape of the cone, Lost Koan  has its parallel in the space above the earth’s poles where the solar wind meets with the earth’s magnetic field, referred to by astrophysicist Dr Stephen B. Mende as the ‘lost cone’.

Peter Liversidge: Interstate 2001 Aluminium (3mm), stove enamel, reflective materials, fixings (Edition of 10, published by The Multiple Store)

Interstate is a true-to-scale, reflective, American road sign produced using (federal approved) US Interstate Green and font, also called Interstate. Like my other watercolours and text pieces on the North Montana Plains, a real place which I never visited, ‘Interstate’ is about regret, imagination and hope. The sign to a place I never saw makes it a place I can always imagine. (Peter Liversidge)

Simon Periton: The Hanging Debtor 2013 Spray paint on powder-coated steel
Courtesy of the artist and The Modern Institute/Toby Webster Ltd, Glasgow

The Hanging Debtor is typical of Simon Periton’s decorative ‘cover’ for more serious issues such as politics, popular culture and history. The figure, hanging upside-down, is based on a German illustration from 1438, in which bags of coins in the cloak appear to defy gravity.

Tom Dale is at the TRIO Bienal in Rio, Brazil and at the Centre d’Art, Neuchatel, Switzerland

Tom Dale: The Mighty Crowns

Artist Tom Dale is having a busy 2015. After his solo show at the John Hansard gallery, Southampton that is due to tour to NIMAC in Nicosia, Cyprus, Tom is currently participating in the TRIO Bienal in Rio de Janeiro Brazil as part of ‘Reverberations – Crossed Borders of Three-dimensionality’ where he is also showing his edition with The Multiple Store ‘The Mighty Crowns’, illustrated above.

For The Mighty Crowns, which takes its name from a set of rockets that illuminate the sky with crown-like formations, he has performed a simple substitution by casting them in bronze. The weight of the bronze from which they are made tells us that (like strange sceptres) these rockets will never fly, nor will they explode to light up the night-time sky.

“I see these attempts to reach the infinite as rituals that try to fix meaning, just as the grand memorials and monuments in bronze try, but ultimately fail, to fix memories in time.”

Tom Dale, 2014

Tom’s work is also included in The Thousand-Thigh Hospice:experiments in healing a six-week long programme of exhibitions, performances, concerts, conferences, workshops that run until 3 October 2015 in Neuchatel, Switzerland and that celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Centre d’Art Neuchatel. For The Thousand-Thigh Hospice:experiments in healing a Tom has created a new sculpture ‘Last Night Was Different’ (image below, courtesy of the artist) is the latest in a line of inflatable objects produced using unconventional materials.

KALEIDOSCOPE by Yinka Shonibare MBE has been unveiled!

We are delighted to announce that our latest edition by YINKA SHONIBARE MBE was unveiled on October 2nd at the artist’s studio in Dalston, London. Created in an edition of only 45, KALEIDOSCOPE will have its public launch at MULTIPLIED, the editions fair that takes place at Christie’s South Kensington from the 17th to the 20th of October.

Yinka Shonibare's KaleidoscopeIf you are interested in acquiring this edition, note it is already available for purchase here.

About Kaleidoscope

Shaped as a phallus, KALEIDOSCOPE‘s body is beautifully decorated in the Dutch wax batik patterns the artist is known for, and the head is made of highly polished brass.

Through the opening at the head of the phallus a distorted image of Sandro Botticelli’s ‘Birth of Venus’ can be seen. Botticelli’s original image depicted the birth of Venus, the goddess of the sea, standing on a shell, the female ideal as the object of mythology and desire. Subverting this familiar image, Shonibare has replaced the female nude by a well-endowed photographed naked male.

KALEIDOSCOPE performs an act of reverse objectification, as the erect phallus and the male nude take the place historically occupied by the female body and therefore take it beyond the familiar realm of the male gaze. Click here to read the full press release.
