Closing in

Esther Schipper is pleased to announce Once Upon a Who?, Simon Fujiwara's second solo exhibition with the gallery.

 

Once Upon a Who? presents new works from Fujiwara's latest ongoing project – a body of work centered on the fictional character Who the Bær.

Who the Bær is a unique cartoon character in the form of a denim wearing bear with a golden heart and an uncontrollably long tongue, that seemingly has no gender, race, sexuality or even a clear design. Without an identity, Who exists only as an image, a status that allows them the freedom to roam a world of online images, appropriating characters, identities, aesthetics and guises in a greedy search for a ‘self’.

    Ways of Seeing Abstraction – Works from the Deutsche Bank Collection

    with Karin Sander

    Through February 7, 2022

     

     

    Aspects of contemporary abstract art, coupled with historical reminiscences, are the focus of the third exhibition showcasing works from the Deutsche Bank Collection at the PalaisPopulaire. The selection includes some 168 works from 1959 to 2021.

     

    Karin Sander's work Wandstück / Wall piece is created by removing an extremely thin layer of paint with all its irregularities, about one-tenth of a millimeter thick, from the wall surface. By sanding the wall down numerous times using increasingly fine sandpaper, the wall beneath, which is covered with emulsion paint, is polished to a high gloss. The picture is created not by applying material but by removing it. The polished surfaces of the wallpieces mirror sections of their surroundings and alter their composition according to the position from which they are contemplated.
