An important sculpture by Joseph Beuys 'Backrest for a fine-limbed person (hare-type) of the 20th Century AD' (1972-1982) has been installed in the Chapel gallery of our new #London space. Through a poetic representation of the injury Joseph Beuys explores the healing capacity of art. The exhibition 'Joseph Beuys, sculpture and early drawings' opens next Thursday, April 27th at Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac London.
For the last day of @annabelleseldorf's #takeover take a glimpse of how art will converse with the unique architecture of the new London gallery. Here Gilbert & George's iconic work A Portrait of the Artist as Young Man, 1970 is projected in one of the delicate wall molding frames of the ground floor space. 'It has been such a pleasure to work on this project with our collaborators in London, Cowie Montgomery Architects. Ely House is such a special place and I’m thrilled to see it having a new life under the wonderful stewardship of the Ropac Gallery.' Annabelle Seldorf
One week before the #opening of our #London gallery, we are pleased to invite architect @annabelleselldorf for a #takeover of our #instagram account. Discover the new gallery day to day through her unique eye: 'Black fumed oak flooring was sanded and refinished to lighten the character and complement new oak boards installed in the galleries. The stair balustrade is from the 1909 renovation by Dunbar Smith and Cecil Brewer for the Albemarle Club, cleaned and polished to return it to its original luster. Restored clarity of original details around the windows was achieved by stripping away numerous layers of old paint before refinishing and repainting.'
