Jaou Tunis 2018

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Tunis

Asmahan Tlig and Haythem Achour, Curtains, 2018.
by

Andrew Berardini

When you land in Tunis, all the press materials are in a language you barely understand and despite everyone’s best efforts, you constantly end up lost, looking for places you never find.

Groundwork

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Cornwall

Janet Cardiff, Forty Part Motet, 2001.
by

Izabella Scott

Cornwall’s picturesque fishing villages, tearooms, and sandy beaches attract 15 million visitors a year, and its southern coastline is dubbed—only half-jokingly—the Cornish Riviera.

But Reynolds does not agree: “I consider them the gates of freedom.”(1) Three simultaneous exhibitions in east London exemplify this fascination with books and their... continue reading
Gallery Weekend Berlin

VARIOUS LOCATIONS, Berlin

Filipa Ramos

There are occasions in which the multifaceted shape of time becomes obvious.
