The friezelondon Art Fair opened today in London.

Our presentation in Booth A18 features work by Mary Corse, Tracey Emin, Teresita Fernández, Shirazeh Houshiary, Klara Kristalova, Lee Bul, Alex Prager, Mickalene Thomas, Adriana Varejão, and Xiang Jing. See you at the fair.

Brazilian artist Adriana Varejão's work was recently selected as the cover of “Antologia de Textos Historias Mestiças” by Adriano Pedrosa, the co-curator of the 27th São Paulo Biennial, and historian Lilia Moritz Schwarcz. The anthology was created on the occasion of an exhibition, of the same name, at the Instituto Tomie Ohtake in São Paulo.
Much like Varejão’s work, the exhibition and anthology focus on anthropology and the notion of mestizaje—the mixing of races and cultures—an essential part of Brazil’s national narrative.

NEW BOOK PRESENTS AN INTIMATE VIEW OF DO HO SUH’S HOMES AS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN THEM BEFORE

Monstrous floating houses, “karma” drawings of spiraling, multi-colored auras, and paratroopers with some questionable parachutes tumble from Do Ho Suh’s imagination onto the pages of a new book. Do Ho Suh Drawings presents 180 reproductions of the artist’s work on paper, including never-before-published sketches from his personal notebooks.

The London based, Seoul native is best known for spectral life-size fabric sculptures of his former homes. For his latest series, currently on view at Lehmann Maupin, he traded in his usual materials of silk and nylon for paper. Revisiting his old residences in Korea and New York, he covered their walls with vellum, then rubbed the paper with graphite or colored pencil to create textured imprints of the surfaces and fixtures. 

Though his large-scale installations have attracted the most attention, Suh has also produced intimate works on paper for years. The book presents details of his massive architectural sculptures alongside the artist’s studies and pictures sewn with thread. Suh’s paper creations move from the two-dimensional to the three-dimensional and back again. They trace all the paths that lead him back home and all the ways he carries his homes with him.
