A month of rapid-fire mini exhibitions
Showcasing the work of seven acclaimed artists over the course of one month in a rapid-fire series of mini exhibitions, fig-futures looks sure to dazzle at Kettle’s Yard this September. The Castle Street gallery is the second venue in the UK tour of this innovative show, and will offer a chance to see pieces by Eva Rothschild and Joe Moran, Oreet Ashery, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio.
From 11-15 September, see ‘A Setup’, a collaboration between sculptor Eva Rothschild and choreographer Joe Moran. Rothschild’s sculptural structures will occupy the Sackler Gallery along with two dancers who will perform Moran’s Singular, exploring ‘the idea of a single consciousness embodied in more than one form’.
The focus during week two (18-22 September), is on Oreet Ashery, who will be staging sonic performance Passing Through Metal for the first time in the UK, while for week three (25-29 September), it’s over to Broomberg & Chanarin for Bandage the knife not the wound, a series of ethereal overlaid photographic prints. Rounding off the fig-futures programme between 3 and 7 October are Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio, who have developed ambitious complementary projects through long-distance conversations from their current homes in New York and Mexico City.
Coyle’s offering – depicting residential spaces, household objects and large-scale textile prints of domestic interiors – will be on display in the Sackler Gallery, while in Gallery 2 Pedraglio continues his ongoing series Spoken Sculpture, with a new installation that draws together objects and materials he has made alongside works from the Kettle’s Yard collection activated through spoken word.
