For his first solo exhibition at Perrotin Tokyo, Jean-Philippe Delhomme will present a series of new portraits produced in his Paris studio during traditional model posing sessions. Delhomme’s portraits are created through direct observation and, unlike much contemporary “figurative” painting, not mediated by photography. His work could be characterized as a painting of representation, “re-presentation” in the etymological sense as a “bringing before one” of an image or figure that substitutes reality.
Perrotin is pleased to announce the opening of Profundidad, a solo show by Chilean artist Christiane Pooley at Hong Kong Space, marking the artist's first solo exhibition with the gallery. In Christiane Pooley's work, waterfalls, ponds, wheat fields, and highways are recurring themes. These seemingly peaceful landscapes, whose exact locations and historical periods are unclear, contain dark undercurrents beneath their serene appearance.
Perrotin Shanghai is pleased to announce the solo exhibition Night School by Swedish artist Jens Fänge, showcasing his captivating new series of paintings from 2023. Jens Fänge’s "Night School" is not an ordinary school, but an oneiric space of sea snails, octopuses, slipper orchids, deer, cats, flutes, and more. Here underground activities literally happen at night, in an endless realm symbolizing our relation to knowledge and the inner world.
Perrotin is pleased to present dual solo exhibitions of work by Daniel Arsham across Paris and New York, in honor of the artist’s 20th anniversary of collaboration with Emmanuel Perrotin. Arsham will debut multiple series of work that draw inspiration from the evolution of his artistic practice over the past two decades. Renowned for visually transforming cultural objects into subtly eroding artifacts, Arsham showcases the power of nostalgia by conflating past, present, and future. In the forthcoming exhibitions, Arsham will return to his oeuvre to examine and reflect on his longstanding appreciation for the complexities of materiality and space.
