'Vanacular' – Gavin Turk - Venice Biennale, 2013

1 June -24 November, 2013, 10am -6pm daily except Mondays

The Gervasuti Foundation, Fondamenta S.Ana, Via Garibaldi , Castello 994, 30122 Venice, Nearest Vaporetto stop Giardini

Site-specific installation of a continuous silk-sreen painting based on Turk's 'Transit Disaster Series' inspired by Warhol's 'Death & Disaster' series (1962-3) and Raushenberg's 18mlong silk-screen 'Currents' (1970). The title is a pun on 'Van' and "Vernacular', a metaphor implying the social connotations that the iconic white Ford Transit van of the 90s represents in British society and a paradoxical play on the Venetian urban context, a city without roads.

'Hunting Song' -Whitney McVeigh',at the Venice Biennale, 2013

The Gervasuti Foundation, Fondamenta S.Ana, Via Garibaldi , Castello 993/A, 30122 Venice, Nearest Vaporetto stop Giardini

Site-specific installation where McVeigh has created a fictional curiosity shop with a diverse selection of objects from her own 'collection' together with 'found' objects located on site at the Gervasuti Foundation. These have been carefully chosen and painstakingly arranged and ordered. Her own objects have been accumulated from junk shops and flea markets from her extensive travels over the last 20 years and have a profound significance to her. They include an old typewriter, artifacts from Syria and Africa, old letters, diaries, Encyclopaedias, ledgers, neglected photographs and tintypes from New York and numerous other books.Some of McVeigh's monotypes are also integrated with the other found objects and discreetly mounted in old frames including one that incorporates a cover of a book of vintage sheet music entitled Hunting Song which also provides the show's title.

Miroslaw Balka - The Freud Museum/White Cube Gallery

20 Maresfield Gardens, London NW3 5SX

March-May 2014

Wednesday-Friday - 12-5
"Contemporary time does not exist, we cannot catch the continuous. As we move ever into the future we are always based in the past. This is the state of my sculpture, there is heat from this pillow, and its impossible to catch, this continuous flow. As soon as you touch it, it's colder than it was at its source. Everything we touch is coming from the past, it's our access to death. For me the important thing in art is to try to catch that consciousness of life." Miroslaw Balka lives and works in Poland and has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions internationally.
