Rosemarie Trockel
Why gravel, Ms. Smith?
January 25–March 19, 2022
London

The solo exhibition Why gravel, Ms. Smith? presents new works by Rosemarie Trockel at Sprüth Magers, London. On view are new and recent ceramic works, a previously unseen Cluster consisting of digitally reconfigured photographs, as well as two new variants of key themes and forms, including the debut of a new series consisting of photographic prints rendered as oil paintings.

In her practice, Trockel investigates questions that emerge from artistic processes as well as societal issues by integrating the reinterpretation of “feminine” techniques and crafts (such as ceramics), the ironic shifting of cultural codes, and the refusal to conform to the commercial and institutional ideologies of the art system.

Heart Overture
February 2–March 12, 2022
Los Angeles

Sprüth Magers is thrilled to announce Heart Overture, an exhibition of new paintings by Lucy Dodd, the artist’s first presentation at the Los Angeles gallery. This body of work marks a culmination of a seven-year cycle of paintings, as well as announces a new collaborative method of picture-making that has pushed her canvases into new aesthetic territories. Produced with myriad natural materials, Dodd’s new paintings teem with life and movement, relaying moments of spontaneous fun, chaotic action and alchemical energy.

Song wordpress announcement

Hyun-Sook Song
February 12–March 26, 2022
Berlin

Sprüth Magers is delighted to announce the gallery’s first exhibition of South Korean artist Hyun-Sook Song. In her practice, Song has developed a distinctive style and technique, using tempera, a type of paint consisting of pigments mixed with egg, as the main material. Despite having lived in Germany for fifty years, Song’s artistic outlook has been strongly influenced by Eastern philosophy and calligraphy as well as by her approach to nature and the body. A reduced formal language, each brushstroke represents one unique movement and documents the artist’s inner state of mind—thus locating her firmly in the Post-Dansaekhwa movement. Reaching a state of utmost concentration and meditation, Song considers painting a performative happening.
