We are pleased to present both existing work and new commissions in the first solo exhibition in Wales, by German born and New York based artist Josephine Meckseper.
One of the foremost female artists of her generation working today, Meckseper melds the aesthetic language of modernism with the formal language of commercial display, combining them with her own images and film footage of historical undercurrents and political protest movements. Throughout her installations and vitrines, by simultaneously exposing and encasing common signifiers, such as advertisements and everyday objects, next to abstract paintings and sculptures she creates a window into the collective unconscious of our time.
At the core of the exhibition will be a mirrored vitrine, and a set of glass, acrylic sheeting and stainless steel sculptures, along with two dimensional and film work.
This exhibition has been curated by Alfredo Cramerotti, Director, MOSTYN, and will be presented alongside a new exhibition by Louisa Gagliardi, curated by Adam Carr, Visual Arts Programme Curator, MOSTYN as part of MOSTYN's continuing 'In Conversation' series. The 'In Conversation' series brings together two solo exhibitions and presents the dialogue, collaboration or similarity in exploring themes that can occur between artists.
