  • Sean Kelly Gallery - Mapplethorpe: Neoclassicism - Press Release
    with an exhibition at the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum Robert Mapplethorpe and the Classical Tradition Photographs and Mannerist Prints which also opens July 1st and continues through August 24th This exhibition of nearly 60 images reveals Mapplethorpe s work through a radically fresh interpretation The selection of silver gelatin prints represents several areas of Mapplethorpe s aesthetic interests including still lifes portraits figure studies body fragments and classical statues which facilitate the unique opportunity to see Mapplethorpe s work through the matrix of Neoclassicism A style of the late 18th century Neoclassicism was exemplified by Jacques Louis David s paintings and the sculptures of Antonio Canova Neoclassical artists in homage to the Greek and Roman Classical tradition crystallized their subject matter to a pure harmonious form with a sober clarity and a subdued sense of color The static rigorous frontal view of a figure in the shallow picture plane of Neoclassical practice was often also utilized by Mapplethorpe with striking and beautiful results Mapplethorpe s photographs exemplify classical ideals of form and proportion with their controlled relationships between light and shadow balance and asymmetry beauty and obscenity while at the same time clearly reflecting both a Classical and highly contemporary

  • Sean Kelly Gallery - Antony Gormley - Press Release
    imploding as a black hole It seems to allude to the rays of gold that might surround a baroque saint here made black and charged although it is not clear whether they are a sign of transcendence or of suffering where the multiple arrows of a St Sebastian are turned into a fetish In Gallery 2 a number of new sculptures from the variable block series pictured above are installed Comprised of a rising canon of four block sizes each eight times the size of the former they translate the place of the body into a massive matrix organized on algorithmic principles in which the void mass relationship is held in a precise tension each block a self contained element in the whole The sculptor calls the process making the pixel physical although it could also be a reversal of the neo platonic ideal of the city in the form of a man The works in this gallery placed axially condense the architectural definition of space into the body Whilst these sculptures evoke the work of Minimalist artists such as Donald Judd it is perhaps more accurate to reference the early installations performance and instructional works of Bruce Nauman In contrast to the compressed energy of the block works Clearing a three dimensional drawing in space is five kilometers of arcing metal rod which turns the Main Gallery into a vast energy chamber contesting the architectural definition of space and making the viewer its subject The totality of the works in this exhibition extend Gormley s interest in the body as a place exploring the universe that exists inside the body as well as the relationship of the body to the immediate space it inhabits both in the built environment and the elemental world Antony Gormley is without question one

    on Georges Bataille directly onto the surface of the paintings integrating language with his iconic images The texts outline Foucault s thoughts on Bataille s idea of transgression The works in the exhibition extend Sarmento s continuing fascination with the transgression of boundaries and the dichotomies those transgressions often illuminate such as spirituality and eroticism sexuality and morality Transgression as articulated by Foucault and interpreted by Sarmento is not merely rebellion or a break down of limits but also the self being pushed to its own limits where it uncovers new boundaries in an infinite progression that instead of liberating the self from its confines imposes new strictures that must again be transgressed Julião Sarmento was born in Lisbon in 1948 and has exhibited extensively worldwide since 1979 Sarmento has been included in two Documentas and three Venice Biennales His work is represented in public and private collections worldwide such as The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden Washington D C the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art San Francisco The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum New York The Museum of Modern Art New York the Musée National d Art Moderne Centre Georges Pompidou Paris France the Stedelijk Van Abbemuseum Eindhoven The
