Andréhn-Schiptjenko at FIAC : Art Fair

20 - 24 October 2021

Andréhn-Schiptjenko is pleased to present works by Dana-Fiona Armour, Uta Barth, Jacob Dahlgren, Elisabeth Frieberg and Siobhán Hapaska.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Grand Palais Ephemère in booth C05.

 

 

Dana-Fiona Armour graduated from the École National des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 2019. At the age of bio-editing and the Object Oriented Ontology movement – a movement that can to be summed up as a school of thought which rejects the privilege of human existence over the existence of non-human objects - she imagines a hybridization between the human and the object. By wishing to put the human and the object on the same level, she creates hybrids where the organic mixes with the rigid forms of minimalism and conceptual art. It could also be characterized by a fusion of medicine, science and art - she has collaborated with researchers and doctors for some of her projects.

 

Dana-Fiona Armour was born 1988 in Willich, Germany. She attended École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts, Paris, France between 2015-2019 and is currently a resident of Poush Collective, Clichy Paris. She had her first solo-exhibition at Andréhn-Schiptjenko Paris in September 2021 and is on view in the group show "Quandla Matière devient Art" at Espace Guerlain, Paris , between Oct 20 - Nov 14.

 

 

Uta Barth has in the past three decades come to occupy a truly singular position in contemporary photography. Having made visual perception itself the subject of her photographic work her images may appear empty as they, with blurred backgrounds and cropped frames capture incidental and ephemeral moments. By deconstructing the conventions of visual representation she draws attention to the periphery and to the limits of human vision. Her images trace light, time and optical afterimages, and they aim to ask us to become invested and conscious of our own perceptual awareness.

 

Barth was born in Berlin in 1958 and lives and works in Los Angeles. She was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2012. Her œuvre is well represented in a large number of public and private collections around the world. Uta Barth is as Professor Emeritus in the Department of Art at the University of California, Riverside.

In 2022, a large survey-exhibition "Peripheral Vision” of Uta Barth’s œuvre is to be presented at the J.Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.

 

 

Jacob Dahlgren’s work is concerned with a dialogue between the authoritative singularity of pure formal abstraction and its position within a variable, complex and social shared culture. Dahlgren’s repetitious collections of ubiquitous and ordinary objects, often domestic, industrially manufactured; stand in their gestalt form as proxy for High Modernist Abstract Painting and for all of the ideological territory that Twentieth Century Art Theory has staked out for it. The contributing objects, however, signify a collective and human aspect of society, each representing an individual choice, to be used or consumed in a unique way by its consumer. Together these objects stand for the group or community, and as such they become democratic rather than authored. This is evident in Dahlgrens’s social practice – a series of performance events around the world involving local communities – as well as in the large-scale sculptural installations in the public space for which he is well known.

 

Dahlgren was born 1970 in Stockholm where he lives and works. He received his MFA from the Royal College of Art in 1999. He has exhibited widely in institutions such as Stavanger Kunstmuseum 2020-2021, Copenhagen Contemporary 2019 Museum Ritter, Waldenbuch (2017), MAGASIN – Centre National d’Art Contemporain (2016), KIASMA Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki (2013, 2011 and 2010), Henry Art Gallery, Seattle (2010, 2013), Fundació Joan Miró, Barcelona (2010), Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt (2011) and Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2006). In 2007 he represented Sweden at the 52nd Venice Biennale.

 

 

Elisabeth Frieberg is a painter whose process is deeply rooted in the experience of nature, translating her observations from personally important places around the world onto canvas. The colours and temperament embedded in these surroundings, along with the exploration of scale, rhythm and time, all make for essential aspects of her investigative abstract painting. Her precise compositions are powerful yet lacking any visible action. Her canvases are primed with transparent gesso and the sometimes apparently bare surfaces are a deliberate part of the work, just as while some paintings imply the image continues beyond the physical constraints of the canvas, others are literally framed.

 

Elisabeth Frieberg, born in 1977 in Stjärnhov, Sweden, currently lives and works in Stockholm. In 2010 she obtained her Masters of Fine Arts at Umeå Academy of Fine Arts, Sweden. In 2016–18, Frieberg founded and led the painting workshop at Konstfack Stockholm. Frieberg’s work has been exhibited at Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art (private view), Stockholm (2017); Index –The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation, Stockholm (2016); Uppsala Konstmuseum, Uppsala (2015); Fondazione Cini, Venice (2015) and on view at Moderna Museet, Stockholm (2018, 2021); Her paintings are included in private and public collections such as Moderna Museet, Stockholm, The National Public Art Council Sweden, Tia Collection, and Magasin III Museum & Foundation for Contemporary Art among others.

 

Siobhán Hapaska has over the past almost three decades created original and formally complex work difficult to categorize. Moving effortlessly between abstraction and figuration the viewer is ultimately left with the space her sculptures and installations leave for the imagination, allowing for a more abstract reflection. Her practice has long been known and celebrated for its diverse vocabulary of organic and synthetic materials, its complex layering of narrative and its immaculately crafted, descriptive detail.

Without directly addressing political issues Hapaska’s work oftentimes references issues of territory and cultural identity, alienation and solitude, often with an element of humour and hopefulness and never with cynicism.

 

Hapaska (born 1963 in Belfast, Northern Ireland) lives and works in London and Rotterdam. Recent projects include a solo-exhibition at Kunstmuseum St Gallen, Switzerland as well as a permanent installation at Chateau Lacoste, France (both 2020), solo exhibitions at John Hansard Gallery, University of Southampton, UK, (2019) Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam (2015) and Magasin III Stockholm Konsthall, Stockholm (2013-2014).

In 1997 Hapaska participated in Documenta X and in 2001 she represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale.
