The Territories of Abstraction, Frieze No.9 Cork Street, London, UK

03.05 - 25.05.2022

‘Territories of Abstraction’ brings together works from nine artists from diverse backgrounds and career paths exploring the question of landscape and how its abstraction can help us better understand the political, sociological and cultural issues that underpin it.

At a time when the links between territory and identity, both national and individual, are particularly pressing, the gallery’s artists provide varying viewpoints and historical perspectives. This includes the voice of Nikita Kadan, one of the most important contemporary Ukrainian artists, currently sheltered in Ukraine; the iconic series Fait (Aftermath) that Sophie Ristelhueber made during the Gulf War; or the speculative proposal of young upcoming duo Ittah Yoda who offers symbiosis as a possible exit strategy.

The exhibition features works by Kapwani Kiwanga, Sidival Fila, Ittah Yoda, Sophie Ristelhueber, Nikita Kadan and Vera Pagava.
