Marking the 50th anniversary of their partnership, What is Gilbert & George? by Michael Bracewell is an accessible exploration of the artists and their art.
The book’s publication on 2 November was celebrated by a launch at HENI Gallery, featuring a conversation between author Michael Bracewell and Gilbert & George.
The audience was privileged to witness an excerpt from Gilbert & George’s new work GODOLOGY.
The groundbreaking artists were kind enough to sign copies of their new book at the event and a limited amount of signed copies is now available on our website. Click on the image below:
King’s Cross focuses on the fast-changing landscape of the King’s Cross area. Bailey’s relatively recent photographs are a testament to the ever- changing city and the stories held within.
Bailey presents a striking yet complementary contrast to the street photography of King’s Cross, turning his famed portraiture to the people that live on those very streets. Initially commissioned by The Big Issue in 1999, these portraits of homelessness showcase Bailey’s unsurpassed talent in capturing unexpected aspects of his subjects, challenging preconceptions with a quiet immediacy.
“It’s only as the latest tides of change have swept around the same streets where Bailey used to amble that we see here that they have come into their own. Look at these now, only a few years old, and they might as well come from a generation ago.” — Francis Hodgson
Beautifully presented, this limited edition large format two-book set presents Bailey’s photography in stunning detail. Each book includes a newly commissioned text by Francis Hodgson, former photography critic for the Financial Times.
For every copy of this book sold a £10 donation will be made to a homeless charity.
The book is published to coincide with the King’s X exhibition, showcasing a selection of the photographs featured in these books at HENI, 6-10 Lexington Street, London W1F 0LB which runs from 27 September 2017– 29 October 2017.
Blondey McCoy presents: ‘Us and Chem.’
For his fifth solo show, British artist Blondey McCoy unveils Us and Chem. to us (and indeed them), an exhibition that intimately draws a parallel between art and therapy. Us and Chem. is a study in self reflection and the psychological manifestations of chemical imbalance. McCoy describes the 12-new mirror works as: ‘A product of disaster. Anti-drugs and pro art… the fruits of a project fuelled by hyper productivity as a means of combatting depression, rather than burying it the easy way’.
On account of his favourite magazine shop waving farewell to Soho’s square mile, Blondey has been forced to move away from his signature cut and stick photo montages of pre existing material and has collected, curated, photographed and then printed onto mirrors a London abode-ful of articles representing the joys and pains of interior and exterior London life. All works are original and unseen, with some presented in sash and leaded window frames of up to 4.5 feet tall.
The show will feature the artists debut collaboration piece, with British artist Damien Hirst: a painted then printed on one off five foot tall spin painting.
“In feeling blue, tragically, the natural thing to do is stay blue. The creating of these new works has proven to me, more than ever before, that expressionism and making artwork is a way of temporarily exorcising that feeling. The show was created out of a compulsion to create, not one to show off, throw a party or make money. It’s making has been a revelation in accepting the need to treat bipolar as a blessing rather than a curse, and to perpetually guarantee myself that from long hum drum periods of heightened sensitivity, my most genuine and life affirming artwork is born.”
Us and Chem. shows at the Heni Gallery, 6-10 Lexington Street, Soho from 27th July to 27th August, bring yourself.
Opening: 6-9PM, Thursday 27th July, 2017.
Pace London is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Brian Clarke. The exhibition, featuring paintings, drawings and glass works, is on view from 1 to 19 November 2016 at 6 Burlington Gardens.
It’s opening coincides with the release of a new monograph of Clarke’s work published by HENI Publishing. Introduced by an exclusive interview between renowned American critic Robert Storr and Clarke, Night Orchids is an elegant monograph of 267 of these works— varying from delicate white line drawings on black card to vivid bursts of watercolour— and each contributing to an apparently endless sequence of questions about the nature of beauty and the void in which it flourishes.
HENI and Pace London is delighted to announce Enclave, an exhibition of new paintings by Jonathan Wateridge. The exhibition will be on view at HENI, 6-10 Lexington Street, from 14 October to 13 November 2016. | Open Mon–Sat, 10am–6pm.
PRIVATE VIEW — Thursday 13 October 2016 — 6–8pm
In his first exhibition with Pace London and HENI, Wateridge presents his most expressive and personal body of work to date. As a starting point for the series, the artist constructed a large scale set of his childhood garden in Zambia and then worked with actors to develop the imagery for his paintings. Enclosed in an apparent world of poolside suburban sunshine, Enclave points to a protected yet fictionalised space that references both the artist’s childhood memories of a lost past juxtaposed with the wider issues of the West’s role in our post-colonial world.
HENI and Pace London are pleased to announce an exhibition of new work by Irish-born painter Conor Harrington. The exhibition, featuring ten new paintings will be on view from 15 September to 8 October 2016 at at 6-10 Lexington Street | Open Mon–Sat, 10am–6pm.
BOOK LAUNCH — Sunday 2 October 2016 — 11:30am–2pm — FREE
