Andréhn-Schiptjenko at Chart Art Fair, Copenhagen, August 26-28, 2016
Andréhn-Schiptjenko at Chart Art Fair,
Copenhagen, 26-28 August, 2016
We look forward to welcoming you in our booth no. 15 at Chart Art Fair in Copenhagen, where we will present works by José León Cerrillo, Francesca Woodman and Cajsa von Zeipel.
José León Cerrillo (b. 1976 Mexico)
José León Cerrillo’s œuvre is multidisciplinary, using language – as system of meaning with inherent flaws and implied power structures – as a starting point and drawing from graphic ideologies, linguistic systems, constructivism, geometric abstraction and modernist iconography as a point of departure. He explores the possibilities of genuine abstraction through a wide range of media, from printed posters to sculpture and performance, often combining all of these into compelling installations. His installations as a whole could be a way of analysing the transformation from the abstract to the concrete and the necessary representations of it through language.
José León Cerrillo (born 1976) lives and works in Mexico City. He received his BFA from the School of Visual Arts and MFA from Columbia University, both in New York. Having exhibited in Mexico and the US he had his first European solo-exhibition at Andréhn-Schiptjenko in 2014. Earlier this year he did a solo-exhibition at LIGA in Mexico City. Recent group-exhibitions include the 2015 Triennial, Surround Audience at the New Museum in NY, curated by Lauren Cornell and Ryan Trecartin, Registro 04 at MARCO in Monterrey.
Francesca Woodman (1958 – 1981 USA)
Francesca Woodman, was an American photographer known for her large and singular body of work that explore issues of gender and self, Using herself as the prime subject of her photographs these are not self-portraits in a conventional sense but rather dialogues with the self and an exploration of representation of the body in relations to its surroundings.
Woodman’s work has been widely exhibited and also the subject of extensive critical study. Recent significant solo presentations include On being an angel, Moderna Museet Stockholm (2015-2016), touring to Foam Amsterdam (2016) and to Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris (2016).
Andréhn-Schiptjenko will present a solo-exhibition of Francesca Woodman’s work in November 2016.
Cajsa von Zeipel (b. 1983, Sweden)
Since graduating from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden in 2010, von Zeipel has become known for her white large-scale plaster sculptures. Her main subject has been young androgynous women and teenage girls that challenge both the viewer and traditional conventions by referring to contemporary subcultures as well as to the classical tradition of sculpture.
In her exhibition at Andréhn-Schiptjenko earlier this year, she introduced new characters and forms. With the work presented at Chart Art Fair, Stranger at the corner of Canal, von Zeipel challenges the classical form and has partly removed the pure humanlike anatomy.
Cajsa von Zeipel, born 1983, graduated from the Royal Institute of Art, Stockholm, Sweden 2010. She has recently been shown at Sven Harrys konstmuseum, Stockholm, Artipelag, Stockholm, Mitchell Algus Gallery in New York. She has been the subject of solo-exhibitions at Millesgården, Lidingö, Västerås konstmuseum, Växjö konsthall, Eskilstuna konstmuseum and Göteborgs konstmuseum, Sweden.
Permanent installations by von Zeipel can be found in public spaces such as outside MOOD-Stockholm, the roundabout in Hackefors, Linköping and in the University Park, Campus Valla, Linköping.
