Jacob Dahlgren at Andréhn-Schiptjenko in Paris

Jacob Dahlgren’s exhibition Units of Measurments is on view at Andréhn-Schiptjenko in Paris. This is Dahlgren’s first solo show in France.

A relationship with everyday life is one of the pillars of Dahlgren’s practice where he constantly seeks geometric and abstract patterns in the surrounding world and processes the mundane and quotidian into art. The title, Units of Measurements, refers to a series of works where Dahlgren uses folding rulers to make rigorous arrangements on the wall, creating, minimalist and multicoloured pictorial patterns. 

The exhibition runs through 29 January 2022.

Karoliina Hellberg at Elizabeth Xi Bauer Gallery in London

Karoliina Hellberg takes part at Elizabeth Xi Bauer Gallery in London, in a group exhibition The Cholmondeley Ladies, running until 16 February 2022.

The Cholmondeley Ladies borrows its title from one of Britain’s most famous paintings – although its author remains a mystery – depicting two nearly-identical twins holding equally-alike babies. This notion of repetition acts as a guiding principle to the show.  Hellberg exhibits works that, though essentially individual pieces, communicate through the repetition of hues and signs, blending notions of foreground and background in her signature fantastic-realist style.
