Simon Buckley at the Living Art Museum, Iceland

The Living Art Museum presents Nothing Really Matters (except me), artist Simon Buckley’s first solo exhibition in Iceland.

Preview 25th September at 5pm in Bankastræti 0, 101 Reykjavík.

For his exhibition in Núllið, Buckley has rendered a series of pen and ink drawings directly onto the space’s walls. The images show a medieval torturer attempting to extract a confession from his victim. Sprawled around the two protagonists are quasi-schizophrenic dialogues between two characters: ‘Simon 1’ and ‘Simon 2’.

Throughout their metaphysical and meta-fictional exchanges they strive to find purpose for their/his being, and the necessity and worth of their/the work’s existence. The dialogues are never explicit; they could be both an internal debate of the artist as he considers the implications of producing artwork for his audience; but he could also be talking to you (after all, he did do this for you)

The exhibition will run until 18th October, opening hours Thursday – Sunday, from 2 – 6pm and by an appointment.

Simon Buckley (1984, UK)
, lives and works in Glasgow. Buckley completed an MFA at The Glasgow School of Art in 2013 and an MA in Analytic Philosophy in 2010 at Bristol University. Recent shows include ‘All You Need’, Riverside Space, Bern, ‘Village of Hope Trees’, Part 1, Koln, ‘Paul Scholes (A Design For Life), The Tip, Frankfurt am Main and ‘Blasted’, Harbinger gallery, Reykjavík. Forthcoming projects include ‘As You Were, As We Are’, Spreeze, Munich.

Katie Schwab in the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015

Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015
September 18–October 31, 2015

Venues across Nottingham

From September 18, this year's Bloomberg New Contemporaries launches in Nottingham across artist-led spaces Backlit, One Thoresby Street, and Primary before it tours to the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London from November 25, 2015 to January 24, 2016. The exhibition is supported by a programme of talks, events and tours in venue and at Nottingham Contemporary, New Art Exchange and Nottingham Castle Museum & Gallery.

From a record number of applicants, 37 artists have been selected from open submission by a panel comprising Hurvin Anderson, Jessie Flood-Paddock (New Contemporaries 2006) and Simon Starling (New Contemporaries 1994). These artists now join an illustrious roster of New Contemporaries alumni that includes Tacita Dean, Mona Hatoum, Damien Hirst, Mike Nelson and Laure Prouvost amongst many others.

Selected artists for Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015 are: Sïan Astley, Kevin Boyd, Lydia Brockless, U. Kanad Chakrabarti, James William Collins, Andrei Costache, Julia Curtin, Abri de Swardt, Melanie Eckersley, Jamie Fitzpatrick, Justin Fitzpatrick, Hannah Ford, Sophie Giller, Richard Hards, Juntae T.J. Hwang, Jasmine Johnson, Tomomi Koseki, Hilde Krohn Huse, Pandora Lavender, Jin Han Lee, Hugo López Ayuso, Beatrice-Lily Lorigan, Scott Lyman, Hanqing Ma & Mona Yoo, Scott Mason, Oliver McConnie, Mandy Niewöhner, Hamish Pearch, Neal Rock, Conor Rogers, Katie Schwab, Tim Simmons, David Cyrus Smith, Francisco Sousa Lobo, Aaron Wells, Morgan Wills and Andrea Zucchini.

Explorations of scale, materiality, form and process play a critical role in the selected works. Abject materials such as car parts, wax, expanding foam and plywood, as well as craft methods of production such as crochet and embroidery are used to question the value of labour and social hierarchies.

The exhibition also includes works that explore the legacy of conceptual art practices alongside others that draw upon painting's rich history of colour and composition. Whilst still and moving image works shown this year explore and challenge the expectations and perceptions of gender and socio-economic circumstance.

Scott Rogers at Collective, Edinburgh

Endling is an exhibition of new work by Scott Rogers (MFA 2012) developed as part of Satellites Programme 2015. Endling is a term used to describe the last remaining member of a species that will soon become extinct. Incorporating sculpture and text, the exhibition is the culmination of research developed from Scott’s interest in processes of decay, mutation and disappearance. The artworks focus on ideas of extinction and the relationships and contradictions between preservation and collapse.
Central to the exhibition is a text work developed between the artist and cultural anthropologist Shirley Lindenbaum on the subject of kuru, a neurological disorder experienced by the South Fore people in Papua New Guinea. Similar to Mad Cow Disease and often referred to as ‘Laughing Sickness’, the disorder spread predominantly due to the consumption of human brain matter and was eventually eradicated through the introduction of western cultural practices. Concentrating on Shirley’s fieldwork with the South Fore people the text considers the link between the epidemic and cultural change, particularly in relation to colonialism.

Hardeep Pandhal at Drawing Room, London

Visit Hardeep Pandhal’s Studio
3 –5 September, 12 - 6pm daily

Recent MFA graduate, Hardeep Pandhal has been selected for Drawing Room's 2015 Bursary Award. The award reflects Drawing Room’s commitment to supporting the development of artists’ practice by providing opportunities for risk taking and experimentation.

Pandhal experiments with non-linear modes of story-telling, parodic language and his own autobiographical content to reflect upon the displacing effects of acculturation: in coming of age, initiation and reformatory practices. He says: “I am interested in how degrees of political correctness shift over time, and how these shifts expose seemingly permissible forms of inhumanity. Not without risk taking, I believe art can both confront and sublimate the tragic to convey otherwise unrepresentable ideas, address situations of compromise and articulate marginalised positions.” 

This is a chance to see the new work that Pandhal has made throughout August during his residency at Drawing Room.
