Balconia @ Swimming Pool, Apr 25 – May 31

23 April 2015

Bulgarian art space Swimming Pool is opening its inaugural exhibition Balconia at their Sofia location, running from April 25 to May 31.

The premise of the space —a terrace pool atop a modernist building at the heart of Sofia —works swimmingly with the themes of its inaugural exhibition: a vacation spent at home, on one’s balcony. A “dated domestic setting — infused with fragmented memories” marks the exhibition, which invites not a change of geography and a redefinition of it.

The group exhibition brings three different artists contributing work: Stefania Batoeva expands on a new exploration of a fictional Club Caligula in dense paintings; Emanuel Röhss presents synthetic sculptures composed of found objects; and Yves Scherer plays with simulacrum and privacy in his latest works.

See the exhibition page for details. **

Olivia Erlanger + Morphing Overnight @ Seventeen, Feb 26 – Apr 18

26 February 2015

Seventeen Gallery will be hosting two concurrent exhibitions – a solo show by Olivia Erlanger and a group show titled Morphing Overnight – at their London space, both running from February 26 to April 18.

Erlanger’s solo show, titled Meat Eater, begins with a transcript between a TL and an MH. “How should it begin?” asks TL. “It should begin with ‘do you remember’,” answers MH. From there, the two characters meander through what could be an art space, discussing symbolism and subjectivity, the “architecture for a history”, ending full circle with “I don’t remember.”

The Morphing Overnight group show – which invites six artists, comprised of Julieta ArandaDora Budor, Debora Delmar Corp.Yuri Pattison, Josh Harris and AIRBNB Pavilion with Emanuel Röhss – is curated by Attilia Fattori Franchini.

The opening on February 26 will be followed by an afterparty by AIRBNB Pavilion and  Life Gallery and hosted by [ space ] called Poppers in Dalston.

Emanuel Röhss @ Project Native Informant, Apr 16 – May 17

16 April 2014

Emanuel Röhss is presenting his exhibition, Knut Ljungfelt, at London’s Project Native Informant, opening April 16 and running to May 17.

Announced with a look into the bleak reality of modern bourgeois living, a press release follows the exhibition title with text illustrating the story of one Knut and his fiancee Beatrice as they traverse an awfully Bret Easton Ellis-esque landscape of violent nothingness.

Just as Knut’s “Jacuzzi of French sparkles” of Dom Perignon 1996 flows and his “black Volvo limousine V90S” glides, Röhss paints a bleak picture of the upwardly mobile middle that rings like Knut’s iPhone 5SX into a void of emotional emptiness: “I cannot discuss this right now – I’ve got business to pursue!”
