2 November 2002 - 26 January 2003Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Michal Rovner.
Michal Rovner was born in Tel Aviv in 1957 and has lived and worked in New York since 1988. Rovner works with film, video and photography and her subjects confront issues of identity, memory and existence. The images she uses undergo a reductive process in the original recording, rendering them residues or shadows of the original subjects. For this exhibition, figures were filmed in a desolate Russian landscape and used as a starting point in the work.
23 October 2002 - 23 November 2002Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Swedish artist Mamma Andersson. This is the artist's first solo exhibition in London. Mamma Andersson's paintings of haunting landscapes, strange interiors and mysterious people are at once magical, ominous and compelling. Scandinavian trees such as birch, pine, aspen and spruce feature among Andersson's motifs together with animals, children, classrooms and libraries. In Andersson's paintings, adults look disorientated, interiors are disordered and the environments portrayed are unstable.
SFG: Gaia Alessi, Richard Bradbury and Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen
10 July 2002 - 3 August 2002Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present SFG, a new work disguised as a summer show, by London-based artists Gaia Alessi, Richard Bradbury and Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen. Proposing themselves to fill the summer show slot from their respective positions within the structure of Stephen Friedman Gallery, Gaia Alessi, Richard Bradbury & Nikolaj Bendix Skyum Larsen have developed a work that uses the gallery not as an inert space, but as one already charged with material, spatial and social potential.
30 May 2002 - 29 June 2002Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by New York-based artist Corey McCorkle. McCorkle makes meticulously crafted objects and formless interventions that blend the grammar of Minimalism and the Baroque. Cosmically inclined, much of his work comfortably holds its place within the fields of interior, urban and orthopedic design.
19 April 2002 - 18 May 2002Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new paintings by Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes. Beatriz Milhazes's works are layered with elements of both local Brazilian popular culture and modernist pictorial language. Her eccentric and elegant paintings are intricately constructed and recall the exuberance, excess and energy of the Brazilian carnival.
8 March 2002 - 13 April 2002Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by American artist Tom Friedman. Tom Friedman relentlessly invents intricate objects out of a range of household materials, such as Styrofoam, masking tape, pencils, toilet paper, spaghetti, toothpicks and bubble gum. His work is obsessively and painstakingly crafted, beautiful and playful. It connects to 1960s Conceptualism and Minimalism, although Friedman's vision and working method goes beyond these historical precedents, creating his own unique visual language.
1 February 2002 - 2 March 2002Stephen Friedman Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of new works by Brazilian artist Rivane Neuenschwander. With intellectual roots in the Neo-concretist movement of the 1970s, Neuenschwander's objects and installations display an intense interest in the life cycles and processes of a wide range of materials, such as dried flowers, snails, rice paper, desiccated insects, pepper and soap bubbles.
