A heckler is someone who ties to unsettle others with questions, challenges or jibes. This exhibition brings together a range of artists who comment on social or political issues, often with a degree of playfulness. Woven through the exhibition is an exploration of ideas around “primitivism” and the re-working of modernist ideologies in the present day.

The exhibition includes photography, video, painting, sculpture, printmaking, performance and installation. A range of beer mats designed by artists Sarah Baker. M-CITY, Bob and Roberta Smith and Gavin Turk are presented offsite at The Black Country Arms in Walsall.

t 01367 810126 e w

High House is pleased to be curating the latest sculptural exhibition from this selection of important contemporary artists. Exhibiting innovative outdoor works these are artists that have attempted to break from traditional figurative and modernist modes of sculpture to create new and exciting work.

Shunning conventional expectations has allowed the creation of bold sculptures that embody truly contemporary themes, materials, production and ideas. Many of those participating are primarily known for their indoor works and in some cases this exhibition presents their first examples of outdoor sculpture.

The exhibition is held in the beautiful formal gardens of High House. The indoor gallery meanwhile continues with the exhibition of Lindsey Bull’s beautiful and delicate oils until 19 May 2013.

Objectify continues until 15 September 2013.

Gallery open Thursday to Sunday 1100 – 1700

Mum Man

Mum Man’ – Shaun Doyle and Mally Mallinson
Private View: 21 March 6 – 8pm / Exhibition: 22 March – 27 April 2013

Paul Stolper Gallery is proud to present Shaun Doyle and Mally Mallinson’s ‘Mum Man’ an exhibition of bronze and mixed media sculptures, prints and works on paper that offer an unfettered account of contemporary Britain. For nearly 10 years, Doyle and Mallinson have incorporated humour and cynicism into their work, censuring behaviours and values associated with contemporary society that they consider untrustworthy, suspect or corrupt. The title ‘Mum Man’ comes from a friend of the artists’ who addressed everyone as ‘man,’ ending every sentence with the word. The title was chosen as it not only suggests a nickname for early hominids like ‘upright man’ but also as it references a change in the social role for men. Doyle and Mallinson’s first solo exhibition at the gallery is a satirical account of the British experience, with three distinct, yet coherent groups of work; the ‘Handyman’ bronzes, the ‘Ecce Homo’ works, and the ‘Wendy Squats’.

The ‘Handyman’ bronzes include three sculptures; The ‘Shovel of Sorrows’, the ‘Handyman of Sorrows’, and the ‘Hammer of Sorrows’. The works all reference the Medieval image of the Man of Sorrows, a violent depiction of Christ impaled by tools of labour, which was used as a warning against labouring on the holy Sabbath. The level of violence inflicted on Christ, common in the art of the period, remains in Doyle and Mallinson’s contemporary version, titled ‘Handyman of Sorrows’. The sculpture depicts Christ pierced with the tools of the Sunday DIYer, revealing a shift in narrative within society, as Sunday is now seen as a day of manual labour, with DIY replacing worship and B&Q becoming the new Church. The sculpture, in polished bronze, is also reference to the finely worked reliquaries found in early Christian art, the polished surface and detailed craftsmanship seeks to make something beautiful out of the barbaric. What seems at first to be a contemporary anti- Christian work is proved to be a re-working of a very pro-Christian icon, re-contextualizing and recycling an apparently redundant image from the Church’s past.
The ‘Ecce Homo’ works, namely ‘Ecce Homo Tesco’, the ‘Ecce Homo Suite’ of drawings, and ‘Homo Tesco (Bin Boy)’ all explore an imaginary branch of human evolution. ‘Homo Tesco (Bin Boy)’ depicts a skeletal figure clothed in a shopping bag, perched on a bin, clutching a rusty can opener. In this offshoot from the hominid family tree, Homo Tesco has evolved extended arms from shopping bag dragging and exists in a post apocalyptic world where family groups survive on so called value food and ready meals. The ‘Ecce Homo Suite’ of works on paper continues the artists’ speculation of specie groups, taking it to absurd lengths. Each Homo Erectus is overdrawn, modified and named to create a new hominid, highlighting the media’s penchant for creating stereotypes and ‘groups’ so that society can be neatly ordered. ‘Homo Disco’, ‘Home Chavo’, ‘Homo Anarchisto’ and ‘Asda Man’ all reflect the social, cultural or political forces that could have influenced the evolution of these ‘might have beens’. They are also speculative in the sense that human evolution has not reached any conclusion and Doyle and Mallinson’s ‘reconstructions’ are just as likely to have come from an article in The Sun as the New Scientist.

Finally, the ‘Wendy Squats’ explore the idea of ‘the home’ as something suspect. Interpreted in previous incarnations as a comment about the current economic and housing crisis, the ‘Wendy Squats’ also describe the vulnerability that any personal, national or cultural identity might seem to offer by way of security. Typically the home is something that is associated with security but this, along with notions of identity and hierarchy, are liable to change or collapse. Referencing also the artists’ experience of squatting and the knowledge that one man’s ruin is another’s castle, the kiddie playhouse is now boarded up and abandoned, as though the previous dwellers have packed up and moved on. The house becomes a relic, suggesting a disinheritance of previously held family values. The home is often used as a metaphor for the human head, and if the house is a state of mind, the ‘Wendy Squats’ are bankrupt, its ideology exhausted and derelict, representing a social structure that needs to be abandoned.

Shaun Doyle and Mally Mallinson have exhibited internationally at institutions including Rude Britannia, Tate Britain; Autumn Exhibitionists, Institute of Contemporary Arts, London and Teenage Kicks – Ca plane pour moi, Galerie Clarke, Montreal. Solo shows include Peristroma Dolorosa, MOT International, London; Return to the Black Forest Ghetto, Galerie Nostheide-Eycke, Dusseldorf, Germany and Ecce Homo Erectus, Venlo Stadhuis, NL. The artists live and work in London and Uttoxeter.

Wer nicht denken will fliegt raus

Group exhibition at Odapark NL
Private View: 18 November 2012
Exhibition: 19 November 2012 – 3 March 2013

Theo Lenders (1955 – 2011)

Odapark presenteert van 21 november 2012 tot en met 3 maart 2013 een tentoonstelling voor en over Theo Lenders, beeldend kunstenaar en gezichtsbepalend curator van Odapark, die 13 september 2011 overleed aan een hartstilstand.

U bent van harte uitgenodigd voor de opening van deze tentoonstelling op zondag 18 november 2012 om 15.30 uur in het Theehuis van Odapark. Guido Wevers, artistiek leider van Maastricht Culturele Hoofdstad van Europa 2018 en goede vriend van Theo Lenders, opent de tentoonstelling.
‘Wer nicht denken will fliegt raus…’, een statement en multiple kunstwerk van Joseph Beuys, werd voor Theo een leidraad in beeldende kunst. Het is ook te zien als een typering van zijn persoon: nooit schuwde hij om openlijk stelling te nemen en discussie op te roepen. De tentoonstelling omvat, in wisselende samenstelling, werken van kunstenaars met wie Theo voor Odapark graag samenwerkte of die hij nog eens aan het publiek had willen tonen. Daarnaast worden onder meer films, video’s en muziek gepresenteerd die voor hem inspiratiebronnen waren in zijn keuzes voor en visies op beeldende kunst.

De tentoonstelling vindt plaats in de Projectruimte, het Theehuis en Beeldenbos van Odapark, center for contemporary art te Venray. Boven op de trappen van het Odapaviljoen wordt voor deze gelegenheid een extra ruimte gecreëerd: ‘Theo’s hoofdgebouw’. Het biedt een inkijkje in Theo’s gedachtenwereld aan de hand van zijn persoonlijke verzamelingen. De bezoeker zal eerst hier doorheen moeten alvorens de tentoonstelling te kunnen bezoeken. Wie niet wil nadenken, vliegt er dus niet uit, maar komt er deze keer eenvoudigweg niet in…

Tijdens de tentoonstelling is werk te zien van: Shaun Doyle & Mally Mallinson, Mitsy Groenendijk, Erik Habets, Kristof Kintera, Andrea Lehmann, Theo Lenders, Edward Lipski, David Lynch, Keetje Mans, Aernout Mik, Johan Muyle, Heli Rekula, Tanja Ritterbex, Rob Scholte, Helmut Smits en Bas de Wit.
