Our Highlights from The Armory Show 2015
Our selection shows a work from each medium: film, sculpture, painting, and photography. Within those respective categories, each chosen piece best represents our taste—this typically being a combination of the fiercely abstract and some photorealism.
Our Selection (Text written by Nina):
These sculptures are incredible. I would take them everywhere if I could. So delicate yet so strong. The contrast of the straight slash with the organic shape of the sculpture appealed to me.
To this day, I still think Hodgkin continues to produce the most beautiful work. I’d like to hang this particular print in my bedroom and fall asleep to it every night.
I thought this was such an unusual piece for Schütte, considering all the colour. It caught my eye immediately. I have always adored his series, as well as his sculptures, of course.
We just saw a wonderful exhibition of Kentridge’s in Johannesburg. I love his oversized tapestries, and I like that this particular work contains a series.
Pieces that comment on contemporary African society are always of interest to us. Claerbout does fantastic video work, and I adore his style.
This is a nice work on paper detailing Nash’s sculpture. Works on paper are sometimes more telling than the final piece.
Abramović is such a powerful artist of our generation, and this image speaks wonderfully to me.
