Do Ho Suh: Passage/s at Victoria Miro


Do Ho Suh’s first exhibition with Victoria Miro will feature new fabric sculptures conceived especially for the gallery, including a walk-through configuration of Hubs, and a range of his works on paper. Exhibited for the first time will be works created by a new process in which Suh’s signature architectural pieces are compressed into two-dimensional ‘drawings’.

Urs Fischer at Sadie Coles HQ


Urs Fischer’s 2017 exhibition at Sadie Coles HQ will centre on a large-scale replica of Auguste Rodin’s The Kiss, cast in white Plasticine. The famous image of embracing lovers will morph and fragment over the course of the exhibition through the interventions of visitors, who will be free to remould the Plasticine at will. The image of an entwined couple also appears in a group of four new paintings, in which the artist uses classic movie stills.

This will be the artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery, developing research that has been ongoing for over 30 years, revealing a renewed focus on painting, questioning what constitutes a painting exhibition and how we can experience it.
