We are very pleased to inform you about our participation in this year’s Art Basel. We look forward to welcome you in our stand A4, hall 2.1, where we will show exciting new works by the artists of the gallery.

The world in jeans and t-shirts, is a new work by Jonathan Monk made of second-hand clothes with a tongue in cheek reference to Alighiero e Boetti. We will also exhibit part of Jonathan Monk’s contribution to this year’s Venice Biennale: Thieves remains.

David Shrigley will exhibit a new sculpture, as well as a major installation at Art Unlimited that has previously been shown at Santa Mònica Art Centre (2008) and Bergen Kunsthall (2009).
Part of our Art Basel presentation will consist of a new series of paintings jointly made by Jonathan Monk and David Shrigley. By reworking some of the most well known conceptual works of 60’s and 70’s Monk and Shrigley explore the relationship between word and image and recontextualize a seminal part of art history.

Joachim Koester is represented by two new photographic works from the series From the Secret Garden of Sleep and an unique preview of his new 16mm film Movements generated from the magical passes of Carlos Castaneda.

Jeppe Hein will exhibit his new work Mirror Billboard that directly challenges the viewer and distorts the room through its mobile, reflective surface.

Also disturbing though in another sense of the word Peter Land will show his newly finished painting Forest Scenery in which he through the imaginary world of children continues his melancholic pondering over basic existence.

Christian Schmidt-Rasmussen’s painting Migrant workers acknowledges the complexities of cultural assimilation on both sides in Western society.

At this years Venice Biennale, Michael Elmgreen & Ingar Dragset will be curating and exhibiting in the Nordic and the Danish Pavilion. At Art Basel we will also have the great pleasure to present a new work created by the artists. The work Last Performance is an installation that addresses success and failure, vanity and the transience of life.

It is an honour, privilege, and pleasure to announce that we will celebrate our 10th anniversary at Art Basel this year.
We hope that you decide to visit us in our booth and make this year a special one.
Nicolai Wallner
