The exhibition “WORKS ON PAPER” at Leyden Gallery, London

Atsuko is going to participate in the show



Atsuko is going to participate in the group exhibition “WORKS ON PAPER”, Leyden Gallery, Liverpool Street, London UK

Featuring Nan Goldin, Paula Rego, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Christine Taylor Patten, Lindsay Moran, Hilary Ellis, James Melloy, Atsuko Nakamura, Lydia Brockless, Daniel Hosego, Emilia Moisio, Dolores de Sade, Alexander Hamilton & Christopher Kettle

Leyden Gallery is delighted to announce their exhibition of contemporary, prints and drawings & photographs, Works on Paper. This is their first exhibition focusing solely on art that is produced on paper. The exhibition will bring a group of internationally acclaimed artists into dialogue with a selection of emerging talented artists. For this exhibition there is a selection of artists who are represented by Leyden Gallery, such as Hilary Ellis, Atsuko Nakamura, Lindsay Moran and James Melloy, along with a further group who have recently exhibited in Leyden Gallery’s significant and respected quarterly Platform for Emerging Arts shows, which have included emerging artists to watch such as Emilia Moisio, Lydia Brockless, Daniel Hosego and Dolores de Sade. Supporting new artists is a priority of Leyden Gallery; being able to give emerging artists a platform to initially show their work, give them the confidence to exhibit in a commercial space and to support them through the growth of their career with group and solo exhibitions.

Alongside these emerging talents, the work of internationally renowned artists such as Nan Goldin, Paula Rego and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham will also be exhibited.

With a brilliantly diverse range of styles and expertise Works on Paper is set to explore both the medium & the approach to working with such a versatile material.

Artists Dolores de Sade, Emilia Moisio, Lydia Brockless and Daniel Hosego have all exhibited with Leyden Gallery in their respected Platform for Emerging Arts shows. The visible talent of these young artists has been recognised not only at Leyden Gallery but also by respected art institutions globally.

Shortly after exhibiting with Leyden Gallery, Lydia Brockless was shortlisted for the Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2015. Her sculptures are gaining national interest and her practice, which utilises the idea of paradoxes and oppositions, is strongly represented across the wide range of mediums she engages with; including her drawings on paper and tiles.

Following her appearance at Leyden Gallery in Platform for Emerging Arts 3, Dolores de Sade went on to exhibit her print-making skills at the Goto Gallery in Tokyo for the exhibition Prism 4, which held a number of her original prints.

Leyden Gallery recognised the talent of the artist Atsuko Nakamura, after she graduated from the Slade; she joined them to participate in the exhibition Delve, one of Leyden Gallery’s first shows. Soon after she was shortlisted for the prestigious ArtAngel prize and is currently having a solo show in Japan.

James Melloy joined Leyden Gallery in 2014 with his brilliant first solo show artHive. He graduated from Goldsmiths with a BA in Fine Art; his graduation collection was bought for the Goldsmiths Art Collection. Subsequent work has been bought for the Nuffield Trust and Royal Bank of Canada collections as well as by private collectors. He joins Leyden Gallery once again to showcase his new works on paper

Hilary Ellis is a key artist to be featured within Works on Paper. Her work explores the obsessive need for repetition and the attempt to impose order upon chaos. Since joining Leyden Gallery Hilary's work has been selected to feature in prestigious art prizes such The Jerwood Drawing Prize 2014, which includes 51 drawings by 46 practitioners selected from 3,234 submitted works.

Christine Taylor Patten very recently exhibited part of her series of drawings called micro/macro with Leyden Gallery. This series of works are going on to the 14th Istanbul Biennial in September 2015. A group of nine drawings, referred to as Tangents, have been taken from the micro/macro series and are to be exhibited within Works on Paper. The work embodies the amount of time and care Taylor Patten spent making each individual one-by-one-inch drawing, which were created using crow quill and black ink.

Works on Paper will be a collaboration of artistic medium, it will showcase each artist for the unique individual they are, and will aim to show the great diversity of work that can be produced using a paper surface. In a world today, where surfaces upon which to create appear endless, sometimes we must appreciate the simplicity and the beauty of paper and what its surface enables.From the website of Leyden Gallery

The Solo Exhibition “The Border of Conscious and Unconscious” at Kanazawa ARTGUMMI, Kanazawa, Japan

This is the first solo exhibition in Japan and her hometown

金沢アートグミ6周年記念 Atsuko Nakamura個展 意識と無意識の境界

Atsuko Nakamura の地元初、日本初となる個展を開催いたします。



Kanazawa ARTGUMMI is pleased to have the first solo exhibition by Atsuko Nakamura in Japan and Kanazawa, her hometown.

Atsuko Nakamura completed MFA at the Slade School of Fine Art, UK, 2011. Her degree show piece ‘Engrave’ gathered considerable attention from art galleries, curators and collectors and it triggered to exhibit in museums and galleries all over the world. Her work has been focused on the relationship between man and nature through history, myths, and psychology. She often use natural materials such as driftwood or salt, and creates extraordinary and site-specific installations, which ‘intervene’ into the space rather than ‘to be placed’ and contextually tied with the site, appeal to the primitive part or intuition of viewers and question how to see the world surrounded us.

In this exhibition, she is going to show new works underlying her resent theme, “ The Border of Conscious and Unconscious” which came from her practice and inspired by the unique space of Kanazawa ARTGUMMI and myths and history of Ishikawa. From the website of Kanazawa ARTGUMMI

この度、金沢アートグミでは石川県出身の現代美術作家Atsuko Nakamura の地元初、日本初となる個展を開催いたします。

Atsuko Nakamura は2011 年ロンドン大学スレード美術学校大学院修了制作展で発表した「Engrave」でロンドンの美術関係者からの注目を集めたのをきっかけに、これまで世界各地の美術館、ギャラリー等で作品を発表してきました。場の歴史、民話、心理学という視点から、過去̶現在の変わりゆく人間と自然の関係に焦点を当て、主に流木や塩といった自然素材を使った壮大なインスタレーションを手がけています。詩的でサイトスペシフィックな作品は人間の理性ではなく、より原始的で直感的な感性の部分に語りかけ、見る者に時間や空間を越え、宇宙の起源や自然や生命とは何かといった根源的な問いを喚起させます。

今展では作家の近年の制作と経験から生まれてきたテーマ「意識と無意識の境界」を根底に金沢アートグミの空間を生かし、また地元石川県の歴史や民話を用いたサイトスペシフィックな新作の数々を展示いたします。From the website of Kanazawa ARTGUMMI

"PLAY with Nature" Building a House

Free Workshop for Children aged 6 -10, and a parent “Play with Nature” with Artist Atsuko Nakamura

linklink

The three day workshop “Play with Nature” gives children opportunities to create a small temporal house using card boxes, cloth, ropes or natural materials such as branches and leaves. Children will learn how to explore nature to discover and reflect findings as they create their temporary structure in Victoria Park or other nearby outside space.

We will work with Contemporary Artist Atsuko Nakamura, who studied architecture, Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arrangement) and Sculpture. She will introduce some ideas from the houses used in Japanese Tea Ceremonies to help children explore forms found in nature, as well as learn skills to read the landscape and use naturally found artists’ materials.

This is part of the Public Programme run through the artist studios at Chisenhale Art Place and Funded by LOTTERY FUNDED UK.
