Vernissage / Robert Montgomery at AJL Art
Friday November 28th – 6 - 10pm
Scottish artist and Berlin sweetheart Robert Montgomery is back, with his latest show ‘You Walk On The Bones of Kings’ unveiled at AJL Art this Friday. Featuring the latest in his distinctive set of billboards, Montgomery continues to challenge the Western ideologies thrust upon us through the use of one of the most insidious forms of control – advertising. His latest pieces were displayed in LA, a commercial capital, and speak in his usual elegant manner of jarring juxtapositions between hope and reality, bitter truths no longer laced in saccharine as in normal adverts.

Ausstellung // Stendhal Syndrome at Circle Culture Gallery
Until February 14, 2015
Regardless of whether of not you missed the grand opening last week, the current show, ’Stendhal Syndrome’ at Circle Culture Gallery is one worth re-visiting. Featuring the work of Icelandic artist Katrin Fridriks, ‘Stendhal Syndrome’ refers to the large installation piece which acts as the centrepiece to the exhibition, a unique painting and sculptural magnifying glass combination which provides every viewer with a truly idiosyncratic view of the work. Master of abstract, beautiful paintings Fridriks questions the fundamentals of life using ‘compelling aesthetic experience’ to do so.
