Hang-Up Gallery Presents their Hang-Up Collections Autumn Edition 2018
Hang-Up’s Autumn Edition Collection promises to be their strongest yet. On show is a varied selection of vibrant originals and limited editions from some of the world's leading urban and contemporary names. Artists exhibited include Banksy, Harland Miller, David Shrigley, Shepard Fairey, Mark Powell, Giles Walker, Magnus Gjoen and Bonnie and Clyde. They are also delighted to be showcasing, for the first time, works by the critically acclaimed Nina Saunders.
Ever wanted to fall down the rabbit hole? Enter the world of Nina Saunders, where armchairs melt to the ground, deers wait at the salon and teacups are too heavy to lift.
Saunders is a multi-media Danish artist who lives and works in London, and is known for her uncanny sculptural transformations of reclaimed furniture. By meticulously manipulating and distorting the shapes of her found materials she turns each previously owned household item into a redundant object. Her ambitious creations are not only extremely witty, but also boast an elegant and mysterious character.
Saunders’ works can be found in the collections of various UK institutions including the Hayward Gallery, Saatchi Gallery and Victoria & Albert Museum, as well as numerous international museums and galleries. Saunders has worked closely with Hermes fabrics for many years, and continues to collaborate on large-scale projects including London and Paris Fashion Week.
Hang-Up are honoured to be the only UK gallery currently exhibiting Nina Saunders. In time for the biggest month on the London arts calendar, the artist will be releasing her first ever limited edition print exclusively with Hang-Up Gallery this October.
Hang-Up Collections Autumn Edition is on at Hang-Up Gallery from 15 Sep – 2 Dec 2018. In celebration of London's busiest art week of the year, a collector’s champagne reception will be held at Hang-Up Gallery on the evening of 4 October from 6 - 8 pm | T +44 20 3667 4550 | Opening Hours: Tues – Sat 11–6pm or by appointment | Admission: Free
‘Hang-Up Collections’ promises a varied selection of vibrant originals and limited editions from some of the world's leading urban and contemporary names. The revolving exhibition showcases brand new releases and exciting rare finds from the Hang-Up collection. Adopting a slightly unconventional approach to the traditional exhibition format, new work is added and removed throughout the exhibition duration allowing it to evolve and change over the weeks.
