The Israel Museum, Jerusalem acquires work by William Mackrell

The Israel Museum, Jerusalem acquires Peak (2018) by William Mackrell from the recent exhibition Bodyscapes curated by Dr. Adina Kamien at the museum.

Bodyscapes studied the concept of embodiment and the corpus as an organizing structure. Examining the relationship between nature and culture through the prism of the body, this exhibition brings together historical sources and artworks ranging from prehistory to contemporary art in a variety of media: works on paper, photographs, sculpture, paintings, video works, and installations. Artists including Tracy Emin, Jenny Saville, Micha Ullman, Maya Zack, Karam Natour, Sigalit Landau, and Ori Reisman explore questions of proportion, the relationship between human beings and nature, and corporeal and mental boundaries in order to make personal, social, and political statements.

86 Princess St, M1 6NG
12th July - 13th August 2021

PINK is delighted to present Acting on Behalf of Thinking (AOBOT), a group show bringing together an assemblage of works that explore sculpture as a performative site of critical inquiry.  

AOBOT plays host to five sculptural contributions that explore performativity in its many forms and understandings; using this concept as a reflexive encounter that enables us to redefine how material and physical thinking can be viewed as a site of inquiry between the artist, artwork, viewer and setting.

British Museum acquires work by Stuart Brisley

The British Museum acquires State Occasion from The Museum of Ordure (2020) by Stuart Brisley from his recent exhibition Recent Paintings from the Museum of Ordure at the gallery in October 2020.

Brisley writes in his statement that accompanies the exhibition 'In the second painting and drawing she is similarly caught but this time in an 18th Century carriage taking her to and from the Houses of Parliament with the calculation of exposure.

In these images colours have been altered by using the cheap reproduction process of photocopying. By copying and altering the newspaper print the image is further veiled revealing the technical process thus distancing its relationship to the original source which had previously gone through another transcription in order to be printed in a newspaper'.

Images of the exhibition and a copy of the statement are available to view online here.
