Peter Liversidge – basis
as we are
basis, gutleutstraße 8-12, Frankfurt
21 November 2014 – 25 January 2015
For this solo exhibition, the artist’s first in Germany, Peter Liversidge has prepared 22 proposals. Each hand-typed text suggests an action to be performed in a social, institutional or architectural context. These may be easy to do, or be quite impossible to realise but all encourage a playful and often ironic take on our everyday world.

Richard Forster – Dark Matter
20 September – 11 October 2014
Tom Christofferson Galleri, Copenhaagen, Denmark
Dark Matter, curated by Andreas Albrectsen, presents four artists whose work demonstrates the potential and complexity of the medium of drawing. These artists practices share the painstaking and time-consuming process; a process that demands a human presence in an expression that oscillates between the meditative and the mechanical.

Katie Paterson sends art work to the International Space Station
On 30th July, with the help of the European Space Agency, Katie Paterson sent a meteorite back into space.
Six Campo del Cielo meteorites of different weights are currently on display at Ingleby Gallery as part of Katie Paterson’s solo exhibition Ideas. Each meteorite was formed in space over four and a half billion years ago but Paterson has made the meteorites new, transforming every atom by melting and recasting each one into an altered version of itself. Everything is different, and yet apparently nothing is changed.
At the end of July, the seventh meteorite from this series was sent back into space onboard the Georges Lemaître ATV spacecraft on a course for the International Space Station. The launch took place in French Guiana on 30th July at 12.40 am British Summer Time and on 12th August the spacecraft docked with the International Space Station.
Astronaut Stanley Love recently commented about the project:
‘Your project to send a meteorite to the ISS sounds interesting. I think the value is much more symbolic than scientific, especially if the sample you’re sending has been melted and re-cast. That process resets the “clock” for geological age-dating techniques and erases the very interesting crystal patterns seen in ancient iron meteorites. We have taken an object that came to Earth from space, put a uniquely human signature on it, and returned it to space. On the most fundamental level, it’s a way of communicating with the universe’.

David Austen – The Drawing Room
The Drawing Room, London
25 September – 29 November 2014
The Nakeds is a group exhibition looking at drawings of the body exposed. The naked body is frequently the physical terrain artists traverse in search of the inner self. Drawing from the self or life model, from reproduction or the imagination, has provided artists with the freedom to explore desires, fears and fantasies.
David Austen will present two watercolour works on paper including the eponymous The nakeds 13.6.14, 2014 and Figure with red hair 19.04.2011, 2011. The exhibition has also been curated in collaboration with Austen and art historian Gemma Blackshaw.
