White Cube are presenting their first exhibition in London. The exhibition has been created by Jürgen Partenheimer. The exhibition features paintings, sculptures, unique ceramics and other works on paper that date from 1975-2017.
Partenheimer’s work is abstract and characterised by a varied and multidimensional language of forms as well as use of colour that is striking and a light touch throughout. Jürgen Partenheimer studied fine art as well as art history and philosophy, his first exhibition was at the Richard Demarco Gallery in Edinburgh in 1979. Partenheimer then gained recognition for his work on an international scale when he took part in the biennials of Paris in 1980, São Paulo in 1981 and Venice in 1986. He was the first artist-curator at the Kunsthalle in Düsseldorf between 1977 and 1980.
Admission in to White Cube is free and the White Cube in Bermondsey, where Jürgen Partenheimer’s exhibition is, is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 6pm and 12pm until 6pm on Sundays. The White Cube exhibition programme is spread across three gallery spaces which are Bermondsey in South London, Mason’s Yard in St James’ and Honk Kong Central District.
Jürgen Partenheimer’s Bermondsey exhibition will include two suspended sculptures that look like delicate drawings in space. The sculptures maintain the abstract themes common in Partenheimer’s work. The two sculptures are meant to represent expanded formal relationships. There are also other pieces including Maze, a bronze mesh placed low to the ground in the form of an open frame to create interior volume and space. There are also paintings and other exhibit pieces made out of paper. There is also a collection of porcelain vessels that are a part of the exhibit.
Other than his exhibition at the With Cube, visitors can see Axis Mundi which is one of Partenheimer’s more celebrated work. This exhibit was made up of precariously stacked bronze cubes that are each painted different shades of blue. The sculpture is on display until the 21st May at Callum Street in London EC3.
