For Frieze 2016, Ingleby Gallery will present a focussed presentation of new works by gallery artists who will have enjoyed a significant national and international presence in recent years.
Jonathan Owen has been described as an artist who 'takes away to reveal more'. He is interested in making by reducing and removing, and in the controlled collapse of existing images and objects as a method of production and reactivation. Following his 2014 presentation at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Jonathan Owen has unveiled a major new public sculpture, commissioned by the Edinburgh Art Festival in the summer of 2016, and is one of the invited artists for the Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2016-17. For Frieze, Ingleby will present this newest sculpture - a dramatic re-carving of a 19th century white marble nymph - presented beside a group of ‘Eraser Drawings’ the process of which Owen has likened to a kind of two-dimensional carving.
Katie Paterson’a work combines a Romantic sensibility with a research-based approach and coolly minimalist presentation, her work collapses the distance between the viewer and the most distant edges of time and the cosmos. This year Katie Paterson was confirmed as one of eight artists to create a major new work celebrating the 70th Anniversary of the Arts Council Collection. Her resulting work 'Totality' was installed in Somerset House in early 2016. Paterson's new public commission for the University of Bristol, 'Hollow', was unveiled in June 2016, and her largest ever museum retrospective opens at Biel in Switzerland in September 2016. For Frieze, Ingleby will present Candle (from Earth into a Black Hole); a scented candle which burns down over 12 hours creating a journey through space via smell; as if taking off from Earth, journeying to the Moon, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter, the stars, and all the way into a Black Hole.
In 2015, a survey exhibition of Richard Forster’s meticulously realised drawings entitled 'Modern' toured from Ingleby to the Whitworth Museum in Manchester, this was followed by his 2016 exhibition of new work at the De La Waar Pavilion, Bexhill. Across one of the walls of our Frieze Stand a single drawing will hang against a backdrop of Forster’s own wallpaper, inspired by the designs of the former DDR.
In addition to these highlights of the Ingleby booth we will also present a wall of new large-scale glass-works by Kevin Harman a series which was recently surveyed in Harman's solo exhibition at Ingleby earlier in 2016 in the context of his wider practice. Also featured on the booth will be lightworks by David Batchelor, Polaroid-pair diptychs by Peter Liversidge and new drawings by Charles Avery.
