FRIEZE No.9 CORK STREET
Paris-based gallery Galerie Poggi is pleased to announce its participation in Frieze Cork Street, where it will set up a temporary space throughout the month of May (6th-25th). The group exhibition - The Territories of Abstraction - will mark the gallery’s first appearance on the London arts scene since 2015 and will offer an opportunity to show the breadth and depth of the gallery’s programme.
"The Territories of Abstraction" will bring together the works of several artists from diverse backgrounds and career paths, including Kapwani Kiwanga, Sophie Ristelhueber, Sidival Fila and Ittah Yoda, exploring the question of landscape and how its abstraction can help us better understand the political, sociological, and cultural issues that underpin it. At a time when the links between territory and identity, both national and individual, are particularly pressing, the gallery’s artists provide varying viewpoints and historical perspectives. This includes the voice of Nikita Kadan, one of the most important contemporary Ukrainian artists, currently sheltered in Ukraine; the iconic series Fait (Aftermath) that Sophie Ristelhueber made during the Gulf War; and the speculative proposal of the young emerging duo Ittah Yoda who offers symbiosis as a possible exit strategy.
This project benefits from the generous support of the Centre National des Arts Plastiques (CNAP).
