Lara Almarcegui in Frieze Art Fair




One of our many highlights of the manic Frieze week–last week–was finally meeting up with artist Rotterdam-based Spanish artist Lara Almarcegui. She was presenting a new work for Frieze Projects that listed all the weights of materials that made up the fair's tent structure (see above).

We have been working with Lara as one of the contributors to LAND, ART: A Cultural Ecology Handbook (with pages documenting her wasteland projects), and she will also be presenting at the Arts & Ecology conference No Way Back? in London in December.

London: Christoph Büchel, Hauser & Wirth Coppermill

Copenhagen trip. 'Woman with 24 problems' by John Kørner


A 3-hour train from Copenhagen is the ARoS Art Museum in Århus, where the John Kørner's exhibition 'Århus Bank' finished 17 September. Paintings, ceramics and a video 'My favourite seven paintings': a great opportunity to be immersed in all things Kørner. In his video he presents some of his paintings to different audiences (kids, old folks, his art professor, birds, etc).
 
One of the works he presents in the video is this mural, commissioned by the Copenhagen City Hall. We are working with John on the publication for his upcoming show at Victoria Miro Gallery, London which opens at the end of November.
