Focus on … Caroline Achaintre
Between crumpled and smooth, soft and hard, supple and rigid, opaque or openwork, the leather forms fashioned by Caroline Achaintre recall shells, wings, totems and other organic shapes. It is the weight that creates the volume, the cut-out that lets the relief emerge. Like accessories that one could take hold of and dress up in, these objects evoke fashion clothes, primitive masks or skins, on a human scale. Playing with right side and left side, black and colour, the remains take on the glow and colours of life under the artist’s fingers.

The CAAC is hosting an exhibition of 11 large-scale works by six artists from different generations and backgrounds until May 2022. It illustrates how art has liberated textiles from the domestic sphere and the simple functionality to which they seemed condemned, and turned them into a language of protest to depict the world.
Ulla Von Brandenburg invites us to “get out of our habits to see clearly, to adopt different points of view to see the world in a new way”.

The exhibition returns to the thought of Clement Greenberg (1909-1994) who dominated abstraction thinking for decades. Far from this statement, the exhibition attempts to show the relationship that abstraction has today with narrative, history and a look at the world. Whether political, cosmogonic, ecological or feminist, these works proclaim, each in its own way, the transitive and resolutely contextual dimension of abstraction – which is precisely what Greenbergian modernism had tried to repress.

Kunstmuseum Ravensburg opens on November 19 Caroline Achaintre’s first solo exhibition in a German museum.
This exhibition “provides an overview of the memorable work of the Franco-German artist. Achaintre transposes traditional techniques such as tapestry, ceramics and watercolour into the present, exploring the boundaries between abstraction and representation.” (Extrait du communiqué de presse)
ACCA ‘present the first Australian commission by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller as a one-day only off-site project in an ecclesiastical setting. […] Through the lens of art history, religion and popular culture, Father and Son explores questions of generational change, and the legacies we leave for future generations.’
´Deller, with apologies to his close friend Urs Fischer gives us this worthless inheritance and the profits of a family who gained the whole world but lost its soul and destroyed the earth in its raging intolerance, bigotry, hatred and tyrannical cruelty.’ Jerry Saltz
+ ACCA is pleased to announce a new limited-edition artwork by Jeremy Deller, produced to coincide with Jeremy Deller: Father and Son, and available exclusively via the ACCA Shop.
