Jack Bell Gallery
Drawing on the techniques of Mongol Zurag painting, Baatarzorig Batjargal addresses the broader history of Mongolia’s development over the past century.
Displaying works from 2017 and 2018 including rich tapestries from various regimes, this exhibition offers narratives concerned with the loss of traditional heritage.
8 March – 23 March
Cześć, Pani Ciarska
Cześć, Pani Ciarska chronicles a series of homes of friends, relatives and professional contacts of the artist, Paola Ciarska. The paintings illustrate collections of domestic items, art and technology and how they might make up a life. However the occupants themselves are absent, instead their homes are occupied by naked women, streaming images to contacts on the outside world.
Closing 25 March
Galerie Tanja Wagner
The show displays recent works by Nilbar Güreş, where everyday life realities are placed in theatrical settings to deal with cultural identity codes, especially female or queer. As part of her creative process, the artist uses cultural observation to experience her protagonist’s environment.
23 February – 13 April
Beaux Arts London
The exhibition boasts around thirty works by the late David Bomberg (1890-1957) and interweaves significant areas of his life, including his influence on modern art, his Jewish origins and family, the profound effect of both World Wars and his time spent in Jerusalem and Spain.
8 March – 14 April
Candida Stevens Gallery
A collection of 18 paintings produced between 2015-2017 by Stephen Farthing.
This exhibition depicts the interiors of public and private museums around the world and unusually is split across two venues – the Candida Stevens Gallery in Chichester and the rarely accessed private museum, Manor Place, owned by art collector Simon Draper.
Closing 14 April
Inspired by ritual feather-work pieces from the Andes and Hawaii, artist George Taylor creates works that combine primal instinct and natural materials with complex optical designs and iridescent colour.
Highlights of this compelling body of new work include a new monumental work The Beast in Me, 2017 and new film Innocent Potency.
