Accompanied by an artist’s book with a new text by Olivia Laing, Chantal Joffe’s exhibition Story features a number of paintings of the artist’s mother and considers issues of aging, motherhood and visibility, focusing particularly on the complex relationship between mother and child over time.

María Berrío: Flowered Songs and Broken Currents

The central theme of this recent exhibition is the quiet of catastrophe’s aftermath, a solemnity that points as much towards modes of resilience and adaptation as it does to the crushing devastation of loss. This theme takes shape through María Berrío’s narration of a small Colombian fishing village that has undergone a tragedy. In these works, the artist explores how the formation of historical memory occurs amidst processes of grieving in a village that maps the site of her own imagination.

Doron Langberg in the studio

An increasingly prominent voice among a new generation of figurative painters, Doron Langberg has gained a reputation for works that, luminous in colour and often large in scale, hinge on a sense of intimacy. Depicting himself, his family, friends and lovers, Langberg’s paintings celebrate the physicality of touch – in subject matter and process – a closeness that engages with new dialogues around queer sensuality and sexuality.

Chantal Joffe: Self-Portraits

On New Year’s Day, 2018, the artist set herself the challenge of working on a self-portrait every day for the coming year.

Mark Wallinger: Italian Lessons, a short film of I Am Innocent, 2010, installed at Victoria Miro Venice

An exhibition by Mark Wallinger, presented by Victoria Miro in collaboration with Hauser & Wirth. Selected by the artist especially for Victoria Miro Venice, the works on display date from 1991 to 2016 and reflect a career-long engagement with ideas of power, authority, artifice and illusion. Many of the works on show make use of photography or simulacra in order to test the extent to which the potency of an image or object transcends reproduction. In his celebrated work, I am Innocent, 2010, Wallinger makes a life-size, double-sided reproduction of Velazquez's Pope Innocent X (in the Palazzo Pamphilj, Rome), one side as Velázquez painted it, the other reversed, and, suspending it from the ceiling, sets it in motion so that it spins continuously, to beguiling optical effect.

A walk through of Do Ho Suh’s installation Passage/s

Created from stitched planes of translucent, coloured polyester fabric Suh's Hubs – delicately precise, weightless impressions of corridor-like points of intersection between rooms – seem to exist between imagination and reality, past and present. To move through them is to experience a distinct emotional register, a sense of being in flux, crossing boundaries and moving between psychological states. Filmed on the occasion of Do Ho Suh: Passage/s at Victoria Miro, February – March 2017. © Do Ho Suh, courtesy Marjoleine Boonstra and Reinier van Brummelen.
