A detail from the work titled Nake by Carol Bove, dated 2021
Fair

Frieze London

David Zwirner is pleased to participate in Frieze London 2021 with a presentation including a focus on new work by Michaël Borremans, Carol Bove, and Oscar Murillo.

Michaël Borremans’s works, which will occupy a dedicated space on the booth, include a selection of new paintings from his recent series Merry Missiles and Coloured Cones. In these enigmatic compositions, Borremans continues his exploration of artifice, staging constructions that are derived from historical depictions of the human figure. He subverts classification by shifting between portrait and still life genres—using cones as both surrogate and pure form. Combining technical mastery with subject matter that defies straightforward interpretation, his charged canvases address universal themes with a specifically contemporary complexity.

Carol Bove’s “collage sculptures” that will be on view are made from crushed and bent steel tubing, painted in colors ranging from muted lavender-gray to vibrant yellow, and are combined with highly polished circular disks. Included will be a selection of wall-mounted sculptures, a new format for the artist begun in 2021. The colorful, matte finishes of these sculptures render the steel effortlessly malleable, as if clay-like, and the folds and turns of steel likewise operate in tension with their perceived lightness, confounding perception. 

Oscar Murillo’s new paintings are a continuation of the artist’s ética y estética series, which he first presented at a local church in his hometown of La Paila, Colombia, in 2020, in direct response to his experience of lockdown in La Paila and the anxiety caused by the crisis. On these canvases Murillo has built up gestural markings and words, resulting in dense, visually layered surfaces. 

Works by Harold Ancart, Mamma Andersson, Lucas Arruda, Kerry James Marshall, Raymond Pettibon, Wolfgang Tillmans, Rose Wylie, and Lisa Yuskavage will also be on view.
