Newsletter | 06 March 2012

09 MAR - 28 APR
This exhibition - launching Haunch of Venison’s new gallery space in Eastcastle Street, Fitzrovia - presents a selection of recent projects including the UK premiere of the project '100 Billion Suns'. Paterson’s work strives to communicate unimaginably large or distant occurrences in nature or the universe by staging intimate, poetic and philosophical engagements and transforming them to a human scale.
New York
08 MAR - 28 APR
This is the first US exhibition to focus on the work of the internationally renowned Italian artists Afro, Alberto Burri and Lucio Fontana. Organised by curator Elena Geuna, the exhibition will feature a selection of seminal works from each artist’s career, many of which have rarely been exhibited publicly.
01 MAR - 05 APR
'Mixed Media' explores current practices in sculpture focusing in particular on the extraordinarily varied range of materials employed by artists today. The exhibition includes a new work made especially for the exhibition by Richard Long, major works by Giuseppe Penone and Jaume Plensa, as well as new pieces by younger and emerging artists.

18 Apr - 26 May
Driven by a fascination in a set of books called the Fontana Modern Master series - a set of pocket guides published in the 1970s on eminent writers, philosophers and thinkers - and a longstanding interest in typography and graphic design, young British artist Jamie Shovlin has created a striking new body of work of large-scale paintings for this exhibition.
New York
18 May - 23 Jun
This solo exhibition of Berlin-based, Japanese artist, Chiharu Shiota, includes a new installation made entirely from window frames salvaged from demolition sites and deserted buildings in east Berlin following the fall of the Berlin Wall. The work investigates physical and spatial perception and draws on the troubled history of her adopted city and its people.
New York
18 May - 23 Jun
This exhibition is an intimate display of new work by French artist Marlène Mocquet. Her paintings depict a fantastical world of animated and anthropomorphic creatures inhabiting a universe filled with hallucinogenic splashes of color. At first glance the works appear to portray a vision of whimsical fantasy, but upon further observation reveals a much darker more sinister existence.

The V&A presents the first museum solo exhibition of work by Heatherwick Studio, one of the most inventive and experimental British design studios practicing today. Recent projects include the new London 'routemaster' bus and the 2012 Olympic Cauldron.
The first major retrospective in Canada of American Pop artist, Tom Wesselmann, will be at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in the Jean-Noël Desmarais Pavilion from 18 May - 7 October, 2012.
'Three Realms', a survey show of Gonkar Gyatso's work from 2003 to present day, will be on display at the Giffith University Art Gallery and Queensland University Art Museum, Brisbane, Australia.
Haunch of Venison will be at TEFAF Maastricht 2012. Situated in TEFAF Modern, on stand 525, Haunch of Venison will show a group of internationally renowned artists’ work that closely relates to the gallery’s program.
Nominated for their design of the Olympic Torch 2012, their 'Ascent' exhibition at Haunch of Venison in September 2011 and the Tip Ton chair, for Vitra. The winner will be announced on Tuesday 24 April at an awards ceremony at the Design Museum.

Catherine Lampert, curator of 'The Mystery of Appearance' - recently on display at Haunch of Venison London - discusses the exhibition and explores some of the links between the artists, and between the works on display.
Katie Paterson discusses '100 Billion Suns' in Venice, a project coinciding with the opening days of the 2011 Venice Biennale. Photographs from the project form part of Paterson's current exhibition at Haunch of Venison London's new Eastcastle Street gallery.

Published on the occasion of 'Afro Burri Fontana' at Haunch of Venison, New York, 8 March - 12 May 2012, the exhibition catalogue includes an insightful essay by curator Elena Geuna focusing on the experimentation of each artist from 1950-1968, during the height of post-war Italy’s cultural flourishing.
100 Billion Suns
Gamma Ray Bursts are the brightest explosions in the universe, which burn with a luminosity 100 billion times that of our sun. The confetti cannons created for '100 Billion Suns' contain 3,216 pieces of paper whose colours correspond to each of these cosmic events. Every burst of confetti creates a miniature explosion of all of these vast explosions, in just under a second. This limited edition print reproduces the 3,216 colour swatches created for each confetti canon.
Catherine Lampert
The catalogue published to accompany 'The Mystery of Appearance' is a fresh appraisal of ten post-war British artists – Andrews, Auerbach, Bacon, Caulfield, Coldstream, Freud, Hamilton, Hockney, Kossoff and Uglow – reproducing over forty paintings and drawings, supported by an essay in which curator Catherine Lampert discusses their habits and methods and introduces previously unseen writing by the artists.
