Art • GOSEE ART recommends : ‘The Devil’s Fuge’ art pop-up – presented by West Contemporary and ALBIVA

09.12.2019 •

Following the recent success of their art space at Kerridge’s Bar & Grill at Corinthia hotel, London – where those dining can buy art from the menu along with their desserts – contemporary art gallerists, West Contemporary are pleased to announce ‘The Devil’s Fuge’ art pop-up, a temporary art gallery just in time for Christmas and a collaboration with luxury award-winning, sustainably-focused and vegan skincare brand, ALBIVA. The art pop-up will take over the lower ground floor of ALBIVA’s first pop-up store at 18 Floral Street, Covent Garden, a stone’s throw from other designer brands such as Paul Smith, Agnés b, Jigsaw, and The Shop by Bluebird.

‘The Devil’s Fuge’ is another name for mistletoe, the plant we reserve for our Christmas kisses. Despite being poisonous to eat, mistletoe is known for its many healing and medicinal properties. Luxury skincare brand ALBIVA’s own plant-based products are also known for their many healing properties and have been designed using the latest technology so that the quality and purity of the natural ingredients isn’t compromised.

Art • GoSee loves ... Underneath the skin – artist and book designer Stefan Gunnesch with Vanitas-inspired collages as solo exhibition 'Hidden Identities' in London and in December at PULSE Art Fair Miami

23.10.2019 • The human body, its abstraction and its separate entities are expressed in the work of STEFAN GUNNESCH, who skillfully convinced the jury of the GoSeeAWARDS last year in the category ART PROJECTS (with 'ABSTRACT BEAUTY') as well as ILLUSTRATION with his collages. With ‘Hidden Identities’, The artist just presented his first solo show in London. In December, his works will be presented by Nadia Arnold Ltd. at PULSE Art Fair Miami. Plus, 'Stefan Gunnesch: Into the Vastness' was published this year, his first artist book. We present you photos of works and from the exhibition as well as the artist at work here on GoSee.

His main inspiration emerges from the vanitas genre, symbolic work from the early Dutch 17thcentury showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure and the certainty of death. Change, blossoming and withering are the starting point for his visual research. The collage technique demands that initially something has to be fragmented and destroyed before something new can emerge. In this sense, the method of cutting is directly related to the theme of...

Art • GoSee Book Tip : Oda Jaune 'Heartland' – A World of Her Own, visual worlds between beauty and disturbance, accompanying the retrospective of the artist at Hatje Cantz Publishing

11.09.2019 • 'As someone said, the only impossible journey is the one you never begin...' artist ODA JAUNE says about her project 'The Caress' 2018-2019. At first glance, 'The Caress' looks like a classic pietà. But at a closer look, the viewer recognizes two persons of the same age whose mouths flow into one another in a seemingly never-ending kiss. This monumental sculpture 'The Caress' was placed in a variety of places throughout Bulgaria, opening up an intense dialogue between art and nature in the public space.

In the newly published volume Heartland, appearing at Hatje Cantz, Paris-based artist Oda Jaune dedicates a retrospective of her work to the country of her birth, Bulgaria. The accompanying exhibition took place in the National Gallery in Sofia. Besides documenting the monumental sculpture 'The Caress', this extensive illustrated book bound in high-quality linen features a selection of works characterized by complex visual worlds that fluctuate between beauty and disturbance, with bodies dissolving, faceless creatures, mouths wide open, and protrusions.

Art • GoSee loves ... 'Belvédère – White Was the Snow – a photo project by Thomas Wrede on the Rhône glacier about a landscape in transition at Gallery Wagner + Partner

11.09.2019 • Our friends from Gallery Wagner + Partner in Berlin are now showing 'Belvédère - Weiß war der Schnee' (White Was the Snow) (13 Sept. – 19 Oct., 2019), a project by Thomas Wrede, photographed around Belvédère, a town at the edge of the Rhône glacier. The photo artist spent the last two years investigating issues related to the glacier and its transformation through climate change. For over 150 years, tourists have visited the glacier and its cave however; global warming is also endangering this natural spectacle. Nonetheless, by using fleece coverings, the phenomenon of glacial melt can be reduced. The gallery is pleased to premiere Wrede's new series with this solo exhibition.

Due to weathering as well as constant glacial drift, the fleece coverings age and have to be replaced regularly. Artistically, Thomas Wrede explored this fascinating interweaving of the natural landscape with human intervention. The results are beguilingly aesthetic images, which at the same time are documentation of an irretrievable process. On display at the exhibition are both interior and exterior...
