The social and cultural conflict in China’s Islamic region is a shaded theme. Once as a young artist living in Urumqi, Wang Ling rethought and realized the contemporary Islamic culture in Xinjiang on the other side. In the series paintings "Gobi Spring", Wang Ling made a systems analysis and in-depth study on the characteristics of Islamic patterns and shapes, which commonly can be seen curved in the wall of Mosques or public buildings. In his view, the pictures transmitted Islamic culture’s self-enclosed, exclusive, aggressive temperament, in history, when this kind of complexity met out-strangers, it often exhibited with violent conflict and discomfort. The "Night-Walking" is an art performance under the background of Urumqi 7•5 Event. As a young Han, Wang Ling had ever personally experienced that riots, his spiritual world suffered severe contusion. In the deep winter 2010, he returned to the city, holding a burning candle, walking in those scarred streets. He, in the Quran words and historical shadows, was trying to find a spiritual exit transcending the racial barriers. Wang Ling's many works, implies a silent and powerful forces of darkness. He often let the fire become the protagonist of historical narrative, interwoven and reborn with the darkness. Syrian poet Adonis wrote that "fire has its own writing, but eventually reduced to ashes." as if, all the incomplete combustion of things became a certain solo proof, after those matters went in silence.

Opening speech by curator and author Jan Hoet, Gent. The restlessness, the rawness, the mysteriousness of his works are based on a field of appealing disharmony that captures one´s attention, keeps one searching and sensing. The beauty of these images is not to be found on the surface but rather in the depth of the artistic methodology. The British painter, composer, musician, poet, performance and video artist Chris Newman (*1958) has been living in Berlin since 1996 and now has his first solo exhibition at Alexander Ochs Galleries. To find the beauty in Chris Newman´s paintings, one does not need to know the background of his work. It is even less required to identify any potential remnants of narratives. It is a sense of body, a genuine unconscious and the dismissal of rational control that makes Newman´s works so lively and filled with deeper beauty.

Maureen Paley is pleased to present a new exhibition of work by Hamish Fulton, his second at the gallery. In 1973, after walking over 1000 miles in 47 days from Duncansby Head to Land´s End, Fulton made the decision to "only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks." Since then walking has formed the basis of his practice, materializing in photographs and walk-texts in various forms that result from direct engagement with the environment. Calls for political justice recur in Fulton´s work, corresponding to his commitment to individual and artistic freedom. As Fulton has stated: "A diversity of art walks can interconnect with a wide range of actions, disciplines, philosophies, environmental issues, the meditative, and politics." For the past twenty years Fulton has been devising group walks with over thirty walks realised transnationally. In 2011 Fulton undertook Slowalk (In support of Ai Weiwei) a collective action realised at Tate Modern bringing together hundreds of people walking in silent unison.

Between Mysticism and Abstraction
Opening Jul 07, 2013 at 11:00 am
Start date Jul 08, 2013
End date Aug 30, 2013

Photographer Wolfgang Bartels, born in 1948 in Hannover, Germany, shows his work "Between Mysticism and Abstraction" in the Fagus-Gallery in UNESCO World Heritage Fagus-Works in Alfeld (Leine), Germany. His sensitive pictures, worked out in decades, developed to be an affair of the heart. Bartels does not only expose things and situations, but is looking for enigmatic moods, conveys a third dimension which evokes emotion, touches mysticism and - or abstraction, suggests mysterious situations, which do not open up at first sight, often puts the question of being, goes into metaphysics, touches lyrically or poetically - or transports spiritual aspects. Both leads through his photographic work like a red thread. So he began an intensive research with the music and life of the great mystic and probably most important composer of all times, Johann Sebastian Bach. Bartels´s striving for abstraction expresses in leaving out redundant picture elements to reduce to the essential, "to get rid of the gossip", as the great photographer Robert Häusser would express, who sees in Bartels´s pictures a kinship to his work.

With her gift for delicate, empathic observation, Olga Chernysheva discovers art in the everyday. Her multimedia works tell of simple, yet wondrous people and things. Chernysheva’s work represents a new kind of realism that does not feed on a critical, subversive attitude, but is characterized by an awareness of compossibility. This relational concept, devised by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, holds that different statements, viewpoints, patterns of thought, and substances are compossible, meaning that it is possible for them to coexist in reality. Although not everything that can be imagined or conceived bears this potential, the real, extant world is the site or embodiment of the compossible. As such, it is also the inexhaustible source of Chernysheva’s art. In cooperation with the V-A-C Foundation Moscow, the Kunsthalle Erfurt is proud to present this major solo exhibition of Chernysheva’s works for the first time in Germany. In addition to aquarelles, drawings and paintings from recent years, the exhibition also includes photos and numerous videos, as well as several new works, which will be presented for the first time. The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive catalogue (German-English), published by Hatje Cantz Verlag.

Maureen Paley is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work at the gallery by Tim Rollins and K.O.S. Tim Rollins is an artist, teacher and activist who began his career as the assistant of the conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth. In 1979 he co-founded Group Material in New York. In the early 1980s, he taught students at Intermediate School 52 in the Bronx and went on to create the Art & Knowledge Workshop. His highly acclaimed collaboration with the members of K.O.S. (Kids of Survival) continues to this day. Rollins combines lessons in reading and writing with making artworks. The source material laid out and studied by the students generally relates to literary or musical classics, such as works by William Shakespeare, George Orwell, Ralph Ellison or Franz Schubert, but can also include comics or legal documents.

For the first time an exhibition is dedicated extensively to the phenomenon of vision in contemporary art. In what way does it differ from the utopia, what energies does it hold for the active shaping of the future? Inspired by the first apparition of the Virgin Mary north of the Alps, the Herford apparition from the 10th century, “Visions” embarks on an unconventional, highly stimulating journey through a wide range of contexts and phenomena, allowing the viewer to trace the spirit and the atmosphere of visionary thought and formation.

Maureen Paley is pleased to announce a solo presentation of new work by Anne Hardy. This will be her third exhibition at the gallery. Following on from her recent solo exhibition at the Secession in Vienna, Anne Hardy will present three photographs, Notations, Script and Shelf. In the upstairs space she will build a structure of two interconnected rooms. This is a sculptural continuation that has grown out of her recent residency at the Camden Arts Centre. It is the first time she allows the viewer to enter an actual space of her making. In the past these were created solely to be photographed and were always destroyed afterwards. Breaking away from this former process allows her to expand her working methods and has given her a new dimension to explore within this exhibition. The space was created one month prior to this exhibition opening and has slowly taken shape during that time period.

The film will be on show continually on each day of the screening during gallery opening hours from 11am – 6pm. 4 – 7 April 2013 Private view Thursday 4 April, 6.30 – 8.30 pm Morgan Fisher will be available for informal conversation Saturday 6 April, 4pm – 6pm Morgan Fisher reflects on ( ) ( ) benefits from multiple viewings. The film is unusual in that its construction makes it very difficult to remember, a fact that repeated viewings will make clear. A second viewing of the film will almost certainly accord only somewhat with the viewer’s memory of the first, and the same will be the case for the relation between the second viewing and the third.
