In this, the third chapter of an accruing “retrospective” in reverse, Zhana Ivanova (*1977) resumes her investigation of conditions in which unspoken social and power relations play out. The Bulgarian-born artist presents a newly commissioned performative constellation comprised of a script, film, and live components. The exhibition runs from August 31 to September 16, 2018 – please find more information here.

The lush, moody paintings of Sanya Kantarovsky (*1982) combine wry humor and the silhouettes of contemporary characters with the acrid hues and stylistic inflections reminiscent of painter Paul Gauguin. Here, a selection of new and recent paintings set the scene for the premiere of the Russian-born artist’s new animation film, his largest cinematic venture to date. Further information on the exhibition, which runs from August 31 to November 11, 2018, can be found here.
