CHARLES AVERY 1973, Oban (UK)

GRIMM is pleased to return to EXPO Chicago with two presentations. In the main gallery booth we will exhibit a curated group show highlighting a selection of artists from our program, and for the fair’s Profile section a solo presentation by Charles Avery will be exhibited. Since 2005 Charles Avery has been describing a fictional Island in his drawings, texts, and objects. The Island is located at the centre of an archipelago of innumerable constituents. The gateway to the Island is the town of Onomatopoeia, once the arrival point of the pioneers who first came to discover the place, turned colonial outpost, turned boom town, bustling metropolis, depression ravaged slum, and regenerated city of culture and tourist destination. For EXPO Chicago’s Profile section which runs simultaneously with the Chicago Architecture Biennial, Avery presents a series of new architectural drawings and models of buildings for The Island.

At the centre of the Inner Circle of Onomatopoeia Zoo stands a great aquarium, atop of which is a swimming pool. The aquarium is encased in a tower constructed of rhomboid concrete blocks, and hexagonal prism forms. An inner and outer wall enclose a staircase which conveys one to various viewing platforms, and ultimately to a landing which leads to two smaller stairways by which it is possible to access the pool level.

In the Aquarium, the Islanders keep a leviathan, which they revere due to its size, and its mysterious nature. They fear the creature, which is why they have it so well contained, but they also gain a degree of frisson from feeling that they are swimming ‘with’ it. Therefore the pool is connected to the aquarium by a vertical pipe, far too narrow to imperil the bathers, but enough for both bodies of water to mingle.

The tower serves another purpose, which is to provide the water pressure for the whole complex. It is connected — by a series of pipes and gates — to a series of smaller aquariums and enclosures, concentrically arranged around the tower. By opening a series of valves and locks, the Islanders are able to move water around the zoo as they wish. This begs the question - “How do they fill the tower with water?” They do so by two means: the pool itself acts as a great catchment vessel thus capitalising on the Island’s frequent rainfall. Furthermore, the edifice is connected to a colonnaded underwater lake — navigable either by walkway or boat.

Within the reservoir there are six Islands, three of which support bovine beasts tethered to a great lever. As the animals plod after one another on the circular trajectory to which they are constrained, they move a piston which displaces water through a chamber and forces it up the pipes into the top of the aquarium. The pool-goers above — and it’s an exclusive club — have little notion or feeling for the toil that goes on in the belly of the zoo, as they disport themselves.

The Islanders live in world without time, which is regarded as a superfluous construct of their colonial Nemesis, Triangland. Instead , they organise the ideas of their world spatially. Their eras are defined by geometric terms, not by a chronology. For example a building would be identified as belonging to the era of the pentagon, or of the nonagon, or of the tetrahedron. The zoo belongs to the era of the hexagon. The drawings shown here are plans and elevations of the zoo and its centrepiece, describing the extent of the underground lake, the structure of the great tower and highlighting the geometries by which it was conceived. 202 BOWERY NEW YORK NY 10012

MATTHEW DAY JACKSON 1974, Panorama City, CA (US)

Matthew Day Jackson exhibits Destroyed by Fire (Painter on His Way to Work) (2017). The work is a direct reference to one of six paintings by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) that are classified as either missing or destroyed. Painter on His Way to Work by Van Gogh was painted in 1888 in Arles, France, and has been lost since WW II. Destroyed by Fire (Painter on His Way to Work), is the second work in a series that uses iconic lost artworks to reflect on ‘horriful’ events that make up our recent history; according to the artist everything we do has the potential to create both horror and beauty, and the artist investigates the consequences of both nuclear and technological advancement and its impact on society with these works.

GER VAN ELK 1941 – 2014, Amsterdam (NL)

In the main gallery booth, we will present three video works by Ger van Elk. Van Elk’s often rebellious as well as witty and playful expressions, rests on the premise that art is simultaneously a real and fictional construct. “What I want is a realistic representation of non-realistic situations,” Van Elk once said. This tension between reality and imagination, between presence and absence, is one of the leitmotifs behind Van Elk’s works. Constantly seeking for new applications to reinvent the media worked with, Van Elk was one of the pioneering artists using video. GRIMM will present three animated works that are innovative for the digital manipulation of the video image and for their picture-frame presentation.

NICK VAN WOERT 1979, Reno, NV (US) Me as Him 2017

C-print on panel, unique 25.4 x 19.1 x 4 cm | 10 x 7 1/2 x 1 5/8 in

Nick van Woert’s practice is rooted in his architectural background and reflects on modern day society, technology and progress. Van Woert works with contemporary materials that are ubiquitous in the environment around us, investigating the extreme polarity materials can traverse. Fascinated by the material language of art and what things consist of, he dismantles and strips down objects to examine what remains. At the fair we will exhibit They Lived Outside. Its title a direct reference to Henry Thoreau and others who propagandized a return to nature and who have influenced Van Woert’s ideas about re-claiming both our natural environments with a do-it-yourself mentality. Nick van Woert also shows at EXPO Sound and his solo exhibition DIRTNAP is opening at Patron Gallery on Friday 15 September at 6 pm.

LUCY SKAER 1975, Cambridge (UK)

Lucy Skaer is a multidisciplinary artist who makes sculptures, films and drawings mainly based on photographs sourced from newspapers and books as well as pictures taken from the Internet. Often assembling various source materials and presenting them as installations, her work deals with the meaning of reproduction and the influence of mass media. The transformation of her found material into pictures and objects is an elaborate, often manual process involving the collaboration of craftsmen. What results is a push and pull between representation and the still recognizable meaning and physical shape of the original subject matter.

Daniel G. Baird presents new sculptures that are a continuation of a series of work currently on view as part of his solo exhibition at the Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum. His work is a layered examination of the place mankind occupies within the inevitable passage of time. Baird is interested in the traces that symbolize our relationship to time and progress.

WILLIAM MONK 1977, Kingston Upon Thames (UK)

William Monk’s scenographic works tap into the rich tradition of painting. Monk paints enigmatic and vibrant works, using starkly divisional compositions. He investigates the application of various techniques and combines them on one canvas. His brushstrokes reminisce the style of ‘Les Nabis’, Pointillism and Symbolism. Monk often works in extensive series that gradually evolve over time. The canvases carry irregular intensities of detail, line, foreground and background, with are large abstracted color fields with only hints of figuration left on the surface. William Monk currently has a large solo exhibition at GRIMM’s New York gallery.

CAROLINE WALKER 1982, Dunfermline (UK)

Caroline Walker explores femininity in our modern, image-conscious age. Whether in the private interior of a minimalist home in California, or the more public space of a nail salon in London, she imbues her works with a voyeuristic perspective and a quiet tension that is sometimes social, sometimes psychological. Walker’s paintings set themselves apart through exquisite paint handling and technical virtuosity.
