Liverpool Biennial 2018: Beautiful world, where are you?

14 July - 28 October 2018

Paulina Olowska's work for the Liverpool Biennial is titled ‘Grace, Charles and the Sunflower’, a mosaic that references the socialist belief that through the creation of a public work one can influence and present optimistic visions of a better world. The idea is based on a Polish mosaic from the 1960s situated on the side of a public school in the village of Raba Zdroj, where the artist lives.

For more information prlease visit the Liverpool Biennial website.

LEELEE KIMMEL: WORMHOLE

Opening Tuesday 3 July, from 6 – 8 PM.
Viewing Room | Simon Lee Gallery, London.

Alongside paintings, Kimmel presents 3D printed sculptures that have been manipulated and painted. A natural progression from the paintings, the biomorphic objects appear to have leaped out of the canvases and exist as living, breathing organisms or planets within the gallery space.

HOLLY COULIS

Showing in the Viewing Room at Simon Lee Gallery, London, until 30 June 2018.

The oil on linen works on view depict simple scenes of quotidian life - familiar objects and foodstuffs arranged precisely and playfully on tables and countertops. Reminiscent of early modernist and cubist still life painting, Coulis’s domestic scenes are flattened, and the objects and surfaces are broken down into distinct areas or planes of unvariegated colour that represent different viewpoints.

LEELEE KIMMEL: WORMHOLE

Opening Tuesday 3 July, from 6 – 8 PM.
Viewing Room | Simon Lee Gallery, London.

The large-format paintings feature graphic shapes clustered in thick multilayered pools of bright acrylic paint, which weave across fields of solid white or black. The paintings are imbued with a restless energy and freedom that is intrinsically linked with how the artist creates her works. The resulting compositions deliberately move in and out of representation, sensuous and strict, gloss and matte, tangled and full.

PAULINA OLOWSKA: 7 INGREDIENTS OF PAVILIONESQUE
A performance presented at the opening of the Sculpture Biennale of Geneva, 8 June 2018.

Polish artist Paulina Olowska invited visitors to discover, in a building within the Parc des Eaux-Vives Geneva, the second issue of a journal entitled “Pavilionesque”, produced with students of the HEAD Geneva. Through a collective performance, Olowska transformed the pavilion into a Surrealist theatre and the nearby chalet into temporary sculptures. The event was organized in partnership with the HEAD, where the artist is teaching.

Pavilionesque 2 will be available for sale on www.simonleegallery.com soon!

Angela Bulloch ‘Elliptical Song Drawing Machine: Peacock Blue’, 2018.

Following some external impulse, such as any kind of noise visitors of the exhibition make, these machines draw lines on the walls, conjoining modernist concerns of the grid, monochrome and colour field through a concept of interaction.

The work was installed at Art | Basel 2018, Simon Lee Gallery: Booth M26.
