First institutional presentation in the UK to focus solely on Kiki Kogelnik’s ceramic works.
Austrian-born Kogelnik (1935-1997) lived and worked in New York and Vienna. Considered a key figure of the post-war avant-garde, Kogelnik’s first ceramics were made in 1974 and soon became a key activity in her artistic practice. Her ceramic works were hand-built and cut from slabs using stencils and are reminiscent of her earlier paintings in their boldness, bright colours and vivacity.
Arranged chronologically, displaying a range of her freestanding works that date from the 1950s through to the 1990s, this exhibition demonstrates Kogelnik’s boundless capacity for invention.
