Pace London is pleased to present an exhibition of work by the Japanese artist Kohei Nawa. Nawa comes to London as part of She Inspires Art, an exclusive evening of installation, performance and fundraising on 16 September in support of Women for Women International’s work with women in Nigeria and Syrian refugees in Iraq, for which he will be creating a major installation at Bonhams, New Bond St, open to the public on 15 and 16 September.
Moving fluidly between media, Nawa’s work explores issues of science and digital culture while challenging viewers’ sensory experiences. Interested in industrial mass-production, Nawa often works with synthetic compounds, using them to mediate between ideas of the real and the virtual, perception and illusion. The artist has collaborated with Comme des Garçons in the past.
Pace London is honoured to present its first solo exhibition of work by Korean-born artist Lee Ufan. The exhibition will be staged at 6 Burlington Gardens from 15 September to 24 October 2015 and follows his 2014 solo exhibition at the Château de Versailles.
Lee Ufan’s work, in theory and practice, demonstrates mastery at crossing boundaries and initiating poetic dialogues between cultures, nature, material and space. A founding member of Mono-ha (“Object School”) Lee Ufan’s work meditates on gesture and nature, giving rise to new perceptions.
“Space means the infinite….Buddhism teaches that being is possible only because there is also nothingness, and appearance coexists with disappearance.” —Lee Ufan, 2011.
Pace London is delighted to present How Long is Now, Brent Wadden’s first solo exhibition in the UK. Presented at 6 Burlington Gardens, the exhibition will be on view from 25 September to 24 October 2015.
Wadden creates his paintings by weaving geometric forms that he then stretches over raw canvas, accumulating individual fragments into complete works that balance positive and negative space, textures and materiality with the artist’s woven forms. Influenced by First Nation, folk and Bauhaus textiles as well as painting movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Wadden complicates hierarchies of media and disciplines with his work, throwing the distinction between high and low into flux.
